Question: What could be going on?

 Mechelle58 - Tue Mar 08, 2005 7:06 pm

:oops: I am uncertain as to what is going on. I have noticed a few things that I have mentioned to my physician, but when he smiles and say's he doesn't know. I'm almost certain I must be explaining it wrong. I have been seeing colored lights, I can only describe as crystal like. When this is happening, I also get blank areas in my vision. I notice numbness in my face on the left side alot and even around eyes and mouth. Usually tingling begins with an itching sensation and then the numbness slacks off, but doesn't go completely away. There is also such a cold feeling in it's place. Again I don't know if anyone has any ideas. These two may not even be related. Because I do have the periods of slight confusion noted at times as well. Thank you for any help!
