I have ocular migraines and they have been increasing in frequency maybe two a week.
No headache and they last about 20 minutes. The hemingbone pattern is in both eyes but usually confined to one side of my heard. should i be concerned

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Generally, increased frequency shouldn't necessarily be concerned by itself.
Doctor DanB : If you've had recent check ups with your PCP and ophthalmologist and there are no other abnormalities on exam and you don't have weakness, numbness, difficulty walking, talking, or swallowing, haven't completely lost vision in one eye then I wouldnt necessarily worry.
