I've been experiencing what could be best described as shimmering vision (looks sort of like heat vapors rising off a road) often in my peripheral vision that occurs in both eyes, but mostly in the left. The shimmering happens mostly at night, especially after being in a darkened room for a period of time, and then being exposed to light. Sometimes, when in a pitch-black room, the visual shimmering actually can be seen as a purplish, shimmering light. I haven't had any headaches associated with these symptoms, but do have a lot of twitching which I've had for about 5yrs. Additionally, I frequently see blue flashing stars that occur when I move my eyes.
I've never been officially diagnosed with BFS, but a lot of my symptoms fit what's been described. Anyone had anything similar?
