Day 11 #HAWMC Migraine on Wiki For Real
Today's #HAWMC prompt is about revising our condition on Wikipedia's page. This won't be a problem.
Here is Wiki's entry:
Retinal migraine (also known as ophthalmic migraine and ocular migraine) is a retinal disease often accompanied bymigraine headache and typically affects only one eye. It is caused by a vascular spasm behind the affected eye.
Maybe this should be the "corrected" entry:
Retinal Migraine is not an ophthalmic or ocular Migraine. Nor is it a retinal disease. Retinal Migraine is a Migraine attack that has repeated, disrupting visual bouts before the headache phase of said Migraine . Retinal Migraine symptoms can range from diminished vision, flashing lights and the most scary; temporary blindness. There is no diagnostic test to confirm Retinal Migraine, but it can be diagnosed according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd Edition (ICHD-II) and by ruling out other conditions. It is important to have other reasons for temporary blindness ruled out.
Migraine with aura and Retinal Migraine differ in a few ways. Retinal Migraine may have temporary, complete blindness in one eye, as well as visual aura in one eye. Migraine with aura may affect both eyes.
