I was in a minor auto accident last Wednesday and have had a migraine that started afterwards. I've been having these 'visions' where I'm seeing flashing blue lights every few moments. Does anyone have a suggestion about the visions I'm having?
So sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your blood pressure. I too take two blood pressure medicines. I take Losartan and Metoprolol.
I tried to inquire about your flashing blue lights but all I could find it is an aura associated with your migraine. You are aware that you can have a migraine without the actual pain but other symptoms. Pay close attention to your symptoms you still could be suffering from a silent migraine.
I agree with the flashing lights was a migraine. The brain is the most complext organ in the body. Neurologists are still studying but and learning. I remember seeing my neurologist at 21. I'm 46 and on a fentanyl patch and meds for break through pain. We believe my migraines began as a child. My daughter had her first at age 5. Young right. I was a great nurse but my migraines presented in so many bizzare dibilitating ways. After a hospitalization a cardiologist was called in and I no longer qualified for the traditional migraine treatment it affected my heart. That was the first time the nurse put that patch on me. That was it my life changed I had to eventually go on disability. I take care of a 16 year old active boy and and am lucky to have a supporting husband. I'm not sure but I doubt the rotator cuff problem wont affect your head. But keep track if anything changes.
Heard back from my doctor this morning about the high readings and the swings I've had lately. They are taking me off of Lotrel (amlodipine 10mg-benazepril 40mg) and putting me on a stronger medication for my hypertension called Exforge (amlodipine 10mg- valsartan 320 mg).
Not sure. I've been eating healthier and getting a lot of exercise. I try to limit my caffeine and salt intake, which I've been pretty good about. I updated my cardiologist yesterday, reading were good in general since from Sept 9 until Sept 17th.
