I get opthalmic migraines - no pain but my vision goes wonky and sometimes disappears altogether. I saw the Opthamologist (sp? Is that even what they are called - the eye doctor ) in a hospital clinic and he said they can be brought on my caffeine, chocolate etc.
I've been majorly stressed for a few weeks and just as I was feeling 'normal' had a major balls up at work (which turned out completely fine though). I woke up this morning depressed as hell but did the whole keeping busy and grin like a chimp and seemed to drag myself out of the black hole. Then I wolfed a whole packet of skittles (oh yum) on an emtry stomach and the eyes went again.
Yes stress and your older history of migraines do suggest migraine, They come in various forms, not just the 'I want to lay in a dark room for days' type of migraine. You can easily buy over the counter migraine meds now , there are a few different types, your local chemist will make sure you get the right thing, even if you are feeling better now it might be worth stocking up incase it happens again.
