I get these periodically, with no hard-and-fast relationship b/w the ocular migraine and stress or fatigue, and with no pain or headache at all. I guess there's some r'ship with fatigue, but I'm a SAHM so I never get enough sleep and yet I don't get these too often. My ophthalmologist said that ocular migraines aren't that big a deal. They don't mean you have a brain tumor or an eye problem. If they suddenly become more frequent or there's some other noteworthy change, then it's a good idea to see a doc, but he said not to worry about them.
When I get one, it's a loss of peripheral vision, usually on just one side. Gotta love that when you're driving (time to pull over!).
DS told me two days ago that he's had a few of these. Great.

As you cook, you enjoy omniscience about food that no amount of label reading can match. Having retaken control of the meal from the food scientists, you know exactly what is in it. (Unless you start w/cream of mushroom soup, in which case all bets are off.) To reclaim control over one's food, to take it back from industry & science, is no small thing; indeed, in our time, cooking from scratch qualifies as subversive. ~~ Michael Pollan
