2 weeks ago I had my 6th (and worst) vision loss in 18 months. An optometrist dx Ocular(Retinal) migraine last year when I had my second incident, but I have suffered Classic Migraines for 40 years and never had vision loss. I have positive "B2GP1" antibodies and positive RF, but negative ACL & ANA. I suffer from confusion and memory issues, which I had put down to chronic insomnia and daytime fatigue. I also have joint issues, especially feet and hands.
The vision loss affects my left eye. It starts with blurred central vision which lasts for 20mins to 30mins, then the vision starts to spiral. Each incident lasts approx 40mins to 1 hr. As a preventative measure I have started taking low dose Asprin, but my Rhuemy wants me to start taking Methotrexate (MX) for inflammatory arthritis and my pharmacist says I can't take Asprin whilst on MX. Any views as to whether I should be concerned to stop taking Asprin. Also, not having taken MX before, has anyone had a bad "sticky blood" reaction whilst on MX? I know I should ask my Rhuemy for advice, but I'm afraid he isn't very supportive and I fully expect he will just dismiss my concerns. Tks, K.
