My eyes have done a strange number on me twice in the past two weeks. My doctor said it may be ocular migraine however my symptoms do not feel like the ones spoken of on various websites. My eyes both started moving very rapidly; they were jumping around, side-to-side and a little up and down and I could not control the muscles. Of course everything I saw was jumping and it was as if I was looking out of each eye separately and they were both moving rapidly. The room was not spinning, I did not have flashing lights except that the bright lights in the room seemed to be more in my vision than should be. It was very uncomfortable, I could not walk or stand without holding on to something. It lasted for perhaps a minute and then for a good 20-30 minutes I had mild version of it as it settled down. During that time I felt slightly nauseated and quite dizzy.Then it went away completely. At no time did I have any pain at all. On both occasions that this happened, I'd been exercising a great deal and I also noticed that even though I'd eaten, I felt very hungry. Does this sound like ocular migraine?
I should add that I take Methotrexate, prednisone, and Plaquenil for scleritis and spondyloarthropathy.
