Migraines Lead To Temporary Blindness!?

Follow up on a case I discussed earlier this month. The patient went to the opthamologist and he told her that her eyes were healthy. The patient then came back to see my preceptor, who suspected that the symptoms could be prodrome for migraines.

Turns out that the patient used to have bad migraines 10 years ago and a day after she saw us she had them again.

I had no idea that migraines can induce temporary blindness! Apparently this is relatively common in migraine sufferers.
