Hi, I am looking...

Hi, I am looking at this post about seeing a red splotch. It's quite weird but at around midnight the last 4 nights I've woken up and there is a red splotch in my field of vision, not very big, in my right and left eye (when I close one or the other I see it. Eventually it goes away or I just fall back asleep.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Well this has been happening since I started taking CBD oil for. As I said the last 4 nights it's been happening. I'm not sure if it is related. It's just strange.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing that stands out.
