Hi all, just wanted some advice from anyone who has experienced any scintillating scotomas.
I had a really bad one yesterday at work. It came out from nowhere and lasted about half an hour and completely took over the right side of my eye. It was very scary as I couldn’t see anything. My colleagues were so supportive and amazing I don’t know what I would of done without them. The last time I experienced this was 3 years ago before my seizure. I managed to get in contact with my team yesterday and my consultant has prescribed me a short course of dexamethasone.
I currently have a left occipital AVM in my brain and my recent yearly MRA/MRI scan shows some swelling on AVM hence the starting of dexamethasone. Since having gamma knife surgery last year I have been experiencing more and more visual disturbances.
Any reassurances or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. X
