Did you leave what you were doing when you saw the object?

Ok. It does appear...at least to me...like the frame edging we used to occasionally see on tv/film as it passed by like straight lines...but I don't think that it's that.

My screen is a bit wider than the rectangle I saw, and it wasn't so much a bright /white flash but lighter and darker bars, verticle, flickering and almost pixelated. I sat and went over it, over and over, picturing it in my mind afterward trying to decipher what I actually saw. Hence the gif being pretty much what it looked like to me. As I said earlier, I am a gamer and a pc chick so long spells at the pc is nothing new and I have never had anything like this before.

Just like I said. I also have this sometimes for a short moment (a second to a few seconds). And its not really that bright. its kinda like looking through moving mosaic-glass, so that it flickers.

Then it may be caused by something else . If you review the link I posted , there is a type called pathological afterimage. This is generally caused by more serious issues. It usually entitles reoccurring phenomena , but this might have been the first. Please see a specialist on this issue.

Well I sat dumbfounded for a bit looking at the screen and then looking back up at the wall in case it came back. But nothing else happened. I then continued reading and checking if my game had finished it's update and then eventually went into game.

It wasn't like an artifact that you get when you are looking at something bright and then it is making like an inverted image wherever you look, my eyes were on the screen reading and it distracted me from reading, plus it was moving and nothing else in my visual range was moving.

It could be "migraine sans migraine", so migraine without the headache...


It's called an aural migrane. That was what I immediately thought. I get them, and for me they can last anywhere from a couple of minutes to nearly an hour. I've never had one lasting only a few seconds, but I would imagine it could happen.

They originate in the same region of the brain as a migraine headache, hence the migraine part. And they cause this aura effect in the field of vision, hence the aural.

Occasionally they bring some physical discomfort for me (slight headache or a feeling of general malaise and queasiness) but usually just the weird visual effect and some resulting disorientation. They started out of the blue a few years and the first few times scared the hell out of me. First time I thought I was going to die as it was accompanied by headache and nausea and dizziness.

I didn't even know what it was until a friend at church one Sunday told me he was having an aural migraine and needed to go home. I asked what that was and he told me about it. I said, "That's what I get!"

Apparently it's nothing major. I've read up on it but never seen a doctor about it.

yeah it looked pixelated but the bars were very distinct and kind of randomly changing places (like inthe gif) and the rectangle was sharp edged, not fuzzy and a sort of a rectangle, it was a distinct patch. So what is it that you have that makes you see this, if you don't mind me asking.

One possibility: Does your laptop have an illuminated brand icon on the top cover facing the wall? It could've been a reflection from that, while there was a slight power disruption.

Thank you for your help. I am getting worried now, especially as I have had a fair amount of sore heads lately, sore enough to take pain killers and rub my forehead.

Never "worry" beforehand . Be concerned , but see that specialist.It could turn out to be nothing . No use in taking chances though.

It is not a laptop, it is a tower, that sits on the table to my left, and a LED screen that sits on an elivated base thing that you can store stuff in underneath. There is no lights behind the screen, the only lamp is the one at the side.

Take care of yourself, do your due diligence, but don't get worked up. If you feel like you need to get checked and can afford it, do it. I didn't feel a need to get checked, and couldn't afford it anyway, so I just suck it up. Still kicking.

Not really, thinking of what I have to organise for going on holiday next month, but that is all really. Had been a bit upset earlier in the day when I was reminded (through smelling a tea rose) of my childhood and was sad because I miss my parents (dad only passed away last December) and it would have been his birthday a few days ago, so emotional but not stressed.

I have these also, but for me it's like a beveled edge of a mirror reflecting light into rainbows.
First time I thought my eyes were going bad so I went to eye doctor who told me this was an ocular migraine,
and all in my head. I didn't get any headache or pain so I didn't worry about the auras. But a few years after I started seeing them I had a stroke. I never had high blood pressure or anything commonly associated with risk of stroke.

You should really see a doctor of some type if this continues.

It's possible then, you've had a little visit.

Keep an eye out there may be more.

a reply to: incoserv I get aural migraines as well and mine don't look anything like the gif or description in the OP. What I see with aural migraine is a C shaped set of scintillating zig zag lines that gradually develops across my field of vision and then fades away slowly, over about half an our. It blocks my vision such that I can't read or drive, and I see it whether my eyes are open or shut. I haven't ever experienced one that is shaped like a block and only lasts a few seconds. But that's me.
