Visual Aura was my first symptom, was it yours?

Recommended Posts

I often go back in my mind trying to recall the event that initiated at the onset of my HPPD symptoms.  I can recall the same event happening both times my HPPD got worse.  The first thing that happened before I got HPPD symptoms was seeing flashing of light in my eyes while they were closed.  Blue streaks of lightning, like a storm going off under my eyelids and inside my brain.  I vaguely recall an uncomfortable sensation of muscle constriction that accompanied this, really kind of felt like I was under a spell of the storm.  

Did you have this when your symptoms started?  It's medical term is called aura, but I don't recall getting a migraine with my aura visuals.
