this all started like one day about three months ago when i was getting up from sleping. i coughed like a few times... then i had this splitting headache and
my vision got really fuzzy... like static on a bad T.V. channel, except it was a whiteish tan color. i looked out of the window and could see nothing at all
for like 5 miniutes because of all of the static. i was literally blind for five miniutes. i started sweating really bad and couldn't stand up without
falling over. mind you, i haven't taken any illegal drug before, so i ruled out anything like that.
Visual snow(4)- i see this when my eves are closed and when i am looking at something black. it's never really bothered me.
Auras(10)- i see this around all types of light, no matter how dim or bright. i look up at the stars and see a night sky full of auras lol.
Negative after images(10)- i think this is kinda cool actually. i can look at my computer screen right now and close my eyes. then all i see is the image all
cloudy and green.
"feeling weird"(7)- i always get up in the morning in fear of caughing cause this is what triggers me feeling weird. i always feel drained and i
notice like everything around me.
tinnitus(- i usually hear this when i am sitting in the silence, but it's
rather comforting. makes me feel like someone lives in my ear lol.
Migrane/temp blindness, i call it a "static attack" (9)- my coughing fits trigger this, and i don't know why. i cough too hard, then my eyes
start to feel pressurised, like there going to pop out of my head. then i get this splitting migrane and can't see for like 5 miniutes. i have to
literally go out of my way to sit somewhere for about 5 miniutes. i start sweating alot and feel overheated. i often drink alot of water after this.
I am new to the board but not the condition (27 years). Sir, you need to seek medical help as soon as possible. Your symptoms are closer to *possible* stroke
and heart problems than the effects of migraines, although they could still be migraines. (following is my list -- had to point this one out first!)

Not been here for a while, as I've been trying to ignore my visual symptoms, but it's not easy:-)
Background: I've had hydrocephalus since birth and visual snow and tinnitus as long as I can remember. I always thought the 2 were related (due to damage
caused by raised intracranial pressure). Since finding this site, and a hydrocephalus forum, I'm not so sure...
Visual snow - 5 (daytime) 9 (night / darkness)
Tinnitus - 2 (usually drowned out by everyday noise, but exacerbated by various meds or illness)
Afterimages - 2 (not bad enough to annoy)
Floaters - 6 (had an increase last year, I find these quite annoying)
Starbursts - around streetlights, headlights in the darkness
Derealisation / flat 2D environment - had this for 30 years, started at age 12 after brain surgery for hydrocephalus. Thought I was going mad. Have learned
to live with it and accept it as "normal".

Retinal Blood Cells - By far the one I cannot stand. They look like silver worms flowing through my eyes. Its so annoying I find myself thinking about them
alot more than I should. See them only on bright surfaces and of course the blue sky.
After images - these are not so bad. Not only that but they seem to fluctuate. Sometimes its bad and noticable. sometimes it ain't.
Floaters - These aren't so bad. Least of my concerns.
Visual Snow - Im not sure if I have this...
