More genetic fun!

Poor darling. Sucks that your heart murmur is still present. But good to know. Regarding the migraine - Mum used to get them, and I get them too. Your description is right on! I have described it in the past as looking through a sheet of clear glass with a jagged crack - and the light difracts through that jagged bit. If you get one again, you might also notice the same effect starting in the other eye too, in what appears to be the same location in your vision. Don't worry - it's just more of the same. It is pretty disconcerting and disorienting when you aren't used to it! It might be a once off, or you might find yourself getting them fairly frequently for a while. Try to avoid lots of bright light when it happens, and relax as mush as possible. While it isn't fun (and if it's really bad, driving isn't the best idea), if you can recognize the signs early enough, you can take steps to prevent it getting really bad. This will mean it becomes a managable inconvenience, rather than a total pain in the ass.
