User :   When I was a young child I would all of the sudden smell this very distinct strange smell and then go into a horrible migraine and see very weird day dreams. These episodes happened many times in my early youth. And one morning i woke up and realize my sight was extremely impaired. I literally lost my sight enough overnight to not even see my stuffed animal on my dresser. I'm 22 now and currently serve in the XXX and my visions is -7.8 yeah I know pretty darn bad. I just recently realized that I may have been having seizures. My parent's remember it, but dismissed it as migraines. If they were seizures, what kind were they? what could have caused them? and could that have impaired my vision overnight? Thank you for your time.
