Has anybody had anything similar?

2 years ago I started seeing dots for fifteen to 30 minutes. Along with it came confusion. These happened 3 or 4 times a year for 2 years. The neurologist diagnosed me with ocular migraines a month ago, after having a 2 week long episode of these "migraines" with worsening symptoms.

I have the unit and several packages ...

Simvastatin trial starting

It feels almost like something is lightly touching my ...
