    Hello everyone. I am new to the TMS Wiki. I am 28 yrs old and have a six month history of sudden onset floaters in both eyes, intermittent double vision, light sensitivity and this has caused a lot of anxiety and panic attacks. I have had a full medical investigation and eye examinations by multiple specialists and nothing found and I have been diagnosed with with Visual snow syndrome or visual cortex hyperexcitability after migrane (at the onset after a period of severe stress this started with a very intense headache at the base of the left side of my skull and the visual changes very quickly followed. Has anyone had any success in resolving their symptoms with TMS therapy and is there a possibility this is TMS

    I had migraines my entire life, but haven't had one now since 2014 after doing TMS therapy. The symptoms included at times extreme light sensitivity and what are called "visual migraines" where I had visual distortions, but no pain. All of these symptoms have resolved from treating it as TMS.

    So, based on my experience and the fact that you've seen many specialists who haven't found anything wrong, I'd say it is TMS and can be resolved with TMS therapy. So I suggest diving in and reading/listening to TMS information, engaging in a self-directed program (like the SEP on this site, the Pain Recovery Program, or one you can purchase in a book like Unlearn Your Pain by Schubiner), and/or working with a TMS therapist.

    Glad that you found us and I look forward to hearing how you're doing on your TMS recovery journey.
