Thank you for responding I get the shiny worm looking things on the sides at times. I also have
A very slight headache also. Have read a lot on Ocular migraines and that is one of the symptoms. Doesn’t last long maybe 20 min at the longest.
It’s the strange uncontrollable eye movements that concern me. Maybe it’s from being in the heart/ lung pump so long and my brain can’t
Reprogram. I am going to
My PCP office today.
Hopefully they will do a CT or MRI to rule out TIA’s. I think I could tolerate them and not panic.

Hello @texasdeb, you mentioned you were going to see your PCP and you were going to discuss your involuntary eye movements with them. Were you able to do that and have you learned anything new?
