    Has anyone had an ocular migraine? I went to the ER last month with episodes in my eyes. I'm still undergoing tests. One doctor thought it may have been ocular migraines. Any feedback is appreciated. GB66

    yes, I did while using computer for hours. Flash of light and almost fell off my chair. Lasted for few years. Try resting your eyes as much as possible. BG

    It's my understanding that it comes from a tiny temporary "blip" of blood loss to the brain. I have a friend with FM who gets it from too much computer time. I also can't look at flashing lights.

    I had a neighbor years ago whose young 8 year old son had an epileptic seizure from playing nintendo. Then they put on warning labels on all those games. Something to do with flashing lights that change the brain waves.
