My doctor said that she was a "nervous Nellie" (yes, she really did) but even though my basic neurological exam was normal, she recommended I have an MRI because of the optical migraine - mainly because I'd never had one before, and I was old for onset of that sort of thing.
So that's scheduled for next Wednesday. I got asked about ten times already if I'm claustrophobic. They're going to turn me claustrophobic at this rate.
On the bright side, have planned a movie outing with The Maw on Saturday, to see Brave. It looks like her kind of movie.
