RE: OT loss of sight/now migranes

Theresa: Great point!!! Learning how you feel just before a migraine
begins is so important...it is the key to early treatment and that is so
majorly important in preventing a full blown migraine! After all these
years, it is probably the most essential thing...I never, repeat never,
go anywhere without my caffeine tablets and my ibuprofen so they are
always available the second I feel a migraine beginning.

The key is to catch them early, before the full blown headache is on

a migrane.<br>I get a funky visual aura before a migrane (things just
look a bit fuzzy,<br>sometimes sparkly, or sometime just wavy- which
makes is seem like I am<br>going to faint, but its just a visual
illusion) I drink as much caffiene as<br>I can stomach as quickly as
possible and take a couple of ibuprofen. If I<br>catch it early enough,
I can avoid the migrane.<br><br>Theresa<br><br>-----Original

glaucoma....extremely<br>>rare for my <br>age. To make a long story
short, I have now glasses for<br>>reading, glasses for <br>driving,
glasses for the pc, etc. etc. My<br>>"condition" will be monitored

the loss of hearing, or anything else over the <br>loss<br>>of sight.
Not so much for the reading, although I love it....but there<br>><br>are
