Brief Answer:
It can be migraine or transient ischemia.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.
I am Dr. Dadapeer K an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you are having problemof sudden onset of seeing floating things and distorted vision for few minutes.
These symptoms are typically seen as a part of migraine.
The other things that need to be ruled out are transient ischemia of retinal vessels as in vascular problems affecting the carotid arteries or retinal vessels.
Since you are having recurrent attacks and the number has increased now this requires evaluation by your physician.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.
Hope the information is helpful to you.


Thank you

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

Migraine attack can be triggered by many causes like dim illumination, very bright lights, certain foods like curds..., stress....
Hence it is possible that working in old fluorescent lights can be a trigerring cause in your case.
Since you are having recurrent attacks use of prophylactic drugs like beta blockers or flunarizine will help you to prevent these recurrent attacks.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and prescription of drugs.

Thank you

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
