Ever since I can remember, when ever I close my eyes I see colors. It's hard to describe but I'll give it a shot... The colors are purple and green. There will be a "blob" of one color and it will be surrounded by an aura of the other color. The blob will shrink into nothing and then the aura color becomes the blob, and it continues on like this. The colors arent solid, its almost like colored static on a black background. Sometimes it will be really bright, other times it can get pretty dim. If I'm in a bright area and I close me eyes and have an after-image of what I was looking at, the edges of the after-image become the color of the "dominant blob" and are brighter than the surrounding color, but fade after a few seconds. If I push on my eyes while their closed the colors get extremely bright, sometimes like looking at the sun.
Every once in a while there will be some red mixed in, usually as an outline to the purple or green. I've only had it happen once where there was a full range of colors, needless to say I didn't sleep well that night.
So does this sound familiar to anyone, or am I nuts?
