Not sure if anyone can help me here. Last week I had a very bad coughing/gagging spell after getting a cracker stuck in my throat.
I pulled a muscle in my neck during this, and right afterwards, saw like wavy, circular lights in my vision. It was very similar to like when you look at a bright light then look away. That cleared up after a few hours, but now here a week later...yesterday and today I have been experiencing periods of these "flashes" in my vision again. Its like the bright spot is in the way of my vision. My left eye (same side as the pulled muscle) is also kinda hurting, very much like an eye strain type of pain, and I feel almost like I have a sinus headache - mostly on the left side.
Not sure if any of this is related, but for the past 5 weeks I have had a very bad cold, extreme sore throat and coughing, and had an eye infection in my left eye. All of that has cleared up, however, except I am still coughing a bit.
I plan to call the eye doctor tomorrow, but in the meantime, I was wondering if anyone here might have experienced something similar or have any ideas? Its making me very nervous.
