Ring your gp and make an appt.

We are not dr's on here....

Call NHS Direct if you are worried. It could be a trapped nerve, it could be more serious.

Best phone NHS Direct.

No idea but you're clearly worried so please, put your mind at rest and make an appointment with your doctor. There're few things worse than torturing yourself with worry so take care of yourself and call the doc in the morning.

get thee to the docs (is "out of hours" docs close by that you could ring them and call in?)

for me it's part of a migraine aura...

i would suggest nhs24 if you're sure it's not migraine-related.

Why do you need a quick answer if it's been going on for weeks?

Just make a dr's appt. That's all NHS could tell you to do, they can't diagnose over the phone any better than we can on here.

sounds like a migraine

It's part of the migraine aura for me too, but I usually get the headache to go with it within a day or so. It's worth getting it checked.
