  1. Hi! I am just listening to your most recent podcast where you discuss your struggle with ocular migraines. I had similar triggers and symptoms - stress, sunlight, noise - and the kaleidoscope feeling, also with no pain during but sometimes a slight headache after. I have had them on and off for years! I hadn’t had one in years but when I recently switched BC medications, I had several in just a few weeks. I called my doctor and it turned out that the new medication had something in it that was constricting blood flow, and I had to stop taking it immediately. Haven’t had one since.

    Of course, everyone is different, but wanted to share my experience with you with the hope that it may be useful in some way. Not sure if there is something new in your diet or a new medication like me. Thank you for sharing your story and for your podcast! I am loving it! All the best ❤️

  2. Thank you so much for listening to the podcast, and for leaving such a detailed comment. I really appreciate it. I haven't seen a doctor for my ocular migraine, and I am not on medication, so maybe it's my diet? This started about two years, and I can't quite remember when I went low carb and higher fat, but that is my current diet. Again, thanks for your comment and thanks for listening! :)
