Re: Seeing Lights?

Sounds like ocular (or visual) migraine, that's the migraine aura without the headache. An anxiety fueled on-edge state can certainly make you ripe for panic, whatever's happening.

I have ocular migraine and I see all sorts of spots, "bugs", moving shadows, sparkles, zig zags and flashes in my peripheral vision. My eye doc says everything is fine retinal wise. They don't know what causes them, though all the usual suspects are there: stress, caffeine, nitrates, sulfates, red wine, artificial sweeteners, too much exercise, not enough exercise, yadda yadda yadda.;) I don't pay much attention to them anymore, freaky as they can be. They seems to come and go with no discernible pattern.
