I’ve searched and read various web sites. I haven’t really found anything like this.
I have neck problems. Last night I slept on a new pillow. I woke up in the middle of the night. I saw a red spider-like splotch on the pillow next to me. I realized this was actually something happening with my vision.
I had the presence of mind to close each eye. The splotch was there no matter which eye I used.
It was also moving, the thin leg-like spikes grew and shrank.
I got up and rubbed my neck. The blotch faded a bit. When I turned on the light I couldn’t see it at all. I switched pillows and went back to sleep.
My vision is normal today, but my neck is sore. I don’t have insurance or money to go to the doctor. I was wondering if anyone ever had this happen? I’m hoping it was just a harmless thing caused by a pinched nerve, or something like that.
I do have migraines - maybe one every two years. However, my migraines cause flashing white triangles, not a red blotch.
