Featuring, Angela, a Visual Snow Survivor! Here is her story in her words.
I want to introduce myself; I'm Angela Rivera and I suffer visual snow since November 26 2018
How it started with me - I started to get ear pressure and head pressure. I went to doctors and got diagnosed with ETD (eustachian tube disfunction). The pressure kept going on for about 2 weeks and I was so stressed, and my anxiety was so bad. Then I developed eye floaters and then I started with migraines daily and visual snow symptoms showed. I got so scared, I saw 4 eye doctors and neurologist - all said migraines. I was diagnosed status migrainous.
I stood with symptoms for about 8 months and started to go away slowly. I was fine for a couple of years, until June 19, 2021 the ear pressure came back and so did migraines daily once again, and visual snow symptoms appeared again.
Since then, I'm daily with migraine and visual snow. My daily life is always a battle to watch my kids. Always in pain and these symptoms really gets me down. I try my best to keep going with this condition at times it's very hard on me. I pray that one day there's treatment for this because I can't see myself living like this the rest of my life.
