Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
The "swarm of fast, tiny swimmers" you are seeing are white blood cells as they move along inside the blood vessels of your eye.
This is called an entoptic phenomen.
Great. They are annoying. I notice them just when I have a pretty bad headache.
They are nothing to worry about. It is natural to see them at times.
Does this make sense to you?
Good to hear. I have gone to a doctor outside of my little town and he said I have Wilsons syndrome. He said my thyroid will have some of the T3's and T4's blocked. This is when my throat will feel like a stuck peanut and can cause headaches.
It also sounds like your headaches would qualify as a migraine....
Well, increased copper in you blood and tissues has nothing to do with the entoptic phenomen so I'd not worry about this part of your symptoms at least :)
Yes. Sometimes when I get them and I look at people it will look like they have a glow around them. I did not know this was a migraine because I thought migraines would knock you for a loop and you couldn't function at all.
They are different for every person.
So I have found out. Glad mine are not bad all the time. Most of the time I can tolerate them and still go to work.
Thank you for your time.
My pleasure. Have a nice day.
