Diagnosed with Aura Migraines? Yet being referred to Neuro-Opthalmology!

Had VEP & ERG due to intermittent peripheral blurry vision in my left eye. Lasts for a few minutes at a time and appears like watery ripples that surrounds my peripheral vision!

I have had a range of tests including field vision tests & optic MRI. Field tests showed abnormalities at the back of the eye. MRI did not show any issues with optic nerve.

The attached is the outcome from the VEP & ERG which suggests it could be migraines!

I also have an issue with my Sphenoid Sinus & a Pituitary Adenoma!

What are your thoughts?

I assume you will be going to see an Opthomologist? Was he thinking it was your Retina? The field test is testing the outer parts of your visual field

I am under the eye clinic where I have been seen by an ophthalmologist. At the point of the VEP & ERG I think they were concerned about a delay between the optic nerve and the retina?

High Spinal cord fluid pressure is known to cause peripheral vision issues

Hi now that is interesting as the neurologist sent me for a lumbar and sacral MRI. I have had lower back issues for years which is progressively getting worse. I have had at least 5 episodes of feeling like my left foot is standing in water and times when I can’t put one foot in front of the other. I also get numbness, twitching, and pins & needless! I am waiting for the results and contacted Kings today to remind them. I am seeing neuro ophthalmology on the 20th December..

Hiii, just be aware of it and push for results sooner. My mum has high spinal fluid and the low back pain was a symptom for her. Good luck with the results
