Charlie, when you get these visuals do you feel like there is excess "electricity" in you body and/or mind? I'm curious because that's what happens to me at times. Just as a side note, I read one of your notes where you described having closed eye visuals. I used to have crazy CEVs. That's one symptom that has gone away amazingly enough. Not 100 percent but close. Hang in there!
No visual snow. The first place I heard about it was in this forum.
A typical visual plays out as follows. If I look at a road surface or a sidewalk I immediately see little loop like patterns defined by the different colored pebbles. These start for morph into bigger loops and designs sort of like a paisley print. If I stare at it long enough (30 seconds roughly) more complex objects form. Oriental dragons is a common theme. Sometimes strange animals, sometimes something unexpected. It always happens and I can't make it stop. However, it's not tied into my thinking. My cognitive abilities are intact. Sometimes it's not so apparen't other times it's very distracting. The air in between what I'm seeing is usually clear but not always. At times the designs include lines that extend through the air. It's a hard thing to describe. There are moments when I'll stare at something just to see what will happen. Other times, I wish it would stop. Thanks for "listening". There aren't many places I can discuss this without being considered insane.
