ferret Posted June 29, 2012 Report Share Posted June 29, 2012 I'm not sure if its true but I found this story on te visual snow website: "I've had visual snow and shimmering and arc's for years and years and just pegged it to doing LSD a couple of times when I was a teen. Here are the series of events that happened and now my vision is cured. Here's what happened: -I woke up with my eyes looking puffy and in a pissy mood. -I was watching YouTube videos about 'psychopaths in power' and workplace bullies and was complaining about my old boss and reliving bad memories. -I later on was doing some work on the computer. -It was getting late. About 3 hours before bed though. -I noticed my eyes were heavy. Much more than usual and earlier than usual. -I then noticed this headache come on a couple of hours later. -I took a couple of ibuprofen. Felt very much like I was drinking earlier but I had nothing. -The headache then got BAD and I felt nauseous. I took another ibuprofen because it was that bad. I never take more than two but the headache was unusually strong. -I then went upstairs where my wife was sleeping in bed and told her I was worried and had a BAD headache and felt like I could throw up. I tried to lay on the bed and the head hurt bad. I laid there for about 20 minutes in pain wondering if I should go the hospital etc. -I grabbed the Ipad to research the issue and then It was like 'oh no'.. the screen was SO BRIGHT I couldn't handle it. -A bit later it got the the point where the dim night lamp way across the room was too bright! -The pain was hitting me REALLY bad on the left side behind my eyeball, back of my neck, left temple.. basically on the left more or less. -My wife said it sounded like a migrain headache. -The pain got so bad I asked my wife if we had some Oxycontin's left or sleeping pills or Tylenol 3.. that's how bad it was. -The light then got so strong I started to outright shut my eyes, and even had to cover my eyes with my hands and forearm. -When I shut my eyes, I got freaked out because I saw this pattern! I described it like the Disney Epcot center very similar to this. -This seemed to prove that I was suffering a real migraine headache and didn't need to go to the hospital. Here is a real picture of what I was seeing as documented by a migraine specialist. -The pills then finally seemed to kick in and I noticed I couldn't see the patterns anymore. The shallow breathing, fear, nausia, visuals, and extreme light sensitivity were over and only the headache was left and getting a bit better by every few minutes. -I then finally went to sleep. -I woke up two hours later and the headache was GONE! 100%. -I noticed things seemed 'serene'. 'Calm'. -I went back to bed for 3 more hours and then woke up under slept. -The headache was completely gone. I again noticed during brushing my teeth and such that things were 'calm' and seemed different. -I came downstairs to make coffee with my BLACK colored Kuerig coffee maker in a shadowy corner and WOW! I noticed 'wait a minute! Where are all the squigglies and shimmers and snow????" -Things began to look 3d. Still. Sharp. NO NOISE. NO VISION PROBLEMS. NO ARC's, NO SNOW, NO SHIMMERS!!!!!! FULL CONTROL OVER MY DEPTH PERCEPTION!!!! -That night, I noticed a bit of a headache forming on my RIGHT side this time and took 2 ibuprofen, but it never developed into a headache. I was just paranoid I guess. Today is day 2 and again I'm under-slept and tired. I've been eating bad food all weekend and drank a bottle of wine tonight (Saturday night). No problems at all. My vision is perfect. Something happened after I had that migraine and saw those patterns. Or, I'm guessing it was the high dose of ibuprofen that cured the problem - FOR NOW. I'm the vision problems will come back, but until then I'm SO HAPPY THE SNOW IS GONE!! I finally know how it's like to look at things normally. I looked at the black/white line graphs someone posted and got NO shimmering lines or noise. Not at ALL. I'm still wondering what cured it. What was it? And I wonder how long it will take until my vision problems come back and how I can resolve it next time. So far, all signs point to taking a lot of ibuprofen. I'm not sure what else could have cured it." http://thosewithvisualsnow.yuku.com/topic/7197/Vision-problems-CURED-over-night-help-me-find-why Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
