ok I've been telling my rheumie and family doc for quite sometime now about these flashing lights I get periodically in my perpheral vision.... or at the sides of where you see...soemtimes its in one eye and sometimes the other and soemtimes both.. it will totally blind you when it happens in both eyes at one time.... well its getting very frequent now and sometimes happens like 5 or 6 time a day.... anyone have this>? it sure sounds like cmv retinitis to me... I saw a poster in the rheumie;s br < shares office space with infectious disease doc- teaching hospital> and that is exactly what I see... it showed what I saw/ see on this poster.... anybody else have these symptoms or been diagnosed with this? I've been hypoglycemic before and this is not related to that at all.... no sweating, no hunger... it can happen while eating, driving < had to pull over>> and is not in relation in any way to a blood sugar issue... its eyes. purely visual! help!!
