Ocular Migraines Explained

Ocular Migraine

Ocular migraines are painless, temporary visual disturbances that can affect one or both eyes. If you experience an ocular migraine, do not be alarmed because it is typically harmless and will resolve without medication within 20 to 30 minutes. Similar to other types of migraine, the underlying cause for migraines with visual symptoms have not been definitely established. Many researchers believe that the symptoms are caused by short-lived reduction in blood flow which may be caused by spasm in the blood vessels. Some experts feel that ocular migraine is related to changes that occur across the nerve cells in the retina.

Ocular migraine usually goes away within 30 minutes that is why some people do not require treatment, however; it is best to stop what you are doing and rest your eyes until the vision gets back to normal. If you have a headache, take a pain reliever recommended by a doctor that includes: Aspirin, drugs that treat epilepsy, Tricyclic anti-depressants, and blood pressure medicines or beta blockers. Ocular migraine is rare. It affects 1 out of 200 persons who have migraines. Some research says that symptoms may be due to other problems. Regular migraines can cause vision problems called an aura. Aura involves flashing lights and blind spots in the vision. Symptoms can appear on both eyes.

What Wikipedia can’t tell you about Chiang Mai Pros and Cons


Chiang Mai from a foreigner’s point of view the pros and cons of living in Chiang Mai. The list of good and bad isn’t by any means a definitive list.

Why Vaping Is Cooler and Better than Cigarette Smoking

2435 Vaping

An E-Cigarette is a cigarette-sized tube with a colored LED light on the end, containing a battery and an atomizer cartridge that holds liquid. The solutions are often referred to as e-liquid or e-juice. Typically, they contain hundreds of flavors. For those desiring nicotine without smoke, the solution contains nicotine dissolved in propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin – both common food additives. Nicotine doses in the cartridges are rated in low, medium, high, and zero nicotine. The high strength cartridge has the nicotine equivalent of a regular cigarette, though some have been known to exceed that.

Vaping has lower health risk. The availability of interesting E-juice flavors makes vaping more enjoyable. It does not produce odor and residue like cigarette smoke. Emissions are minimally invasive and pose no health threats to bystanders. E-Juice flavors are mildly pleasant. It is socially acceptable in places where smoking is not allowed. You do not have to step out of the office or a bar to vape. It does not cause addiction. Many smokers who cannot quit smoking have switched to vaping and found out that it helps them abstain from smoking for long periods. Total nicotine intake is substantially reduced. Vaping is tobacco-free and in some cases, nicotine-free.

Chicago has a lot to offer in the way of entertainment for the music enthusiast. We’ve pulled together 10 venues and events that you’ll want to be sure to check out when in town. And, in case the infographic doesn’t load, we’ve written out our list for you right here.

1. Empty Bottle: The Empty Bottle is the place to be if you want to see bands before they make it big. This Ukrainian Village dive’s intimate space fits 400 and in August you can in their awesomely experimental Million Tongues Festival.

2. Metro: Names like The Smashing Pumpkins, Eddie Vedder, and Guns N’ Roses are synonymous with the Metro. Aside from the name-dropping, the Metro’s 1,000-capacity room is plain and simple an awesome way to take in a show. The sound is crystal clear and the rock club vibe is the perfect combination of edgy and cool.

3. The Hideout: If you don’t have a good time at The Hideout, you’re something different. Located in an 1890s balloon-frame house, its live music room, poetry readings, and bingo nights make it feel like something right out of your parents’ basement in all the right ways.

4. Thalia Hall: Modeled after Prague’s opera house, Thalia Hall offers a diverse lineup that includes the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Neurosis, and Lake Street Dive. Take in the show from an Abe Lincoln-esque balcony then head next door to the Michelin-starred restaurant Dusek’s or sample the punch bowls at its downstairs bar, Punch House.

5. Schuba’s Tavern: Schubas is an awesome corner bar with an adjacent dining room serving up some serious mac & cheese. But all the action is in the back room, where up-and-coming artists — often of the quieter singer/songwriter persuasion with an occasional wild rock show or hip-hop gig – can be seen on stage most nights of the week.

6. Green Mill: When the concert is over but you’re still jonesing for some music, skip the club in favor of this former Al Capone hangout where you can catch an after-hours live jazz party with Sabertooth in a swanky setting until 5am. Not really a difficult choice if you ask us.

7. Wickerpark Fest: Large music fests like Lollapalooza are great and all, but to truly experience a Chicago summer is to attend a city street festival. When it comes to music, none is finer than this long-running neighborhood event featuring 40 artists on three stages all for a $10 donation.

8. Lollapalooza: Perry Farrell’s annual Grant Park throw-down is always full of fun surprises and you’re always guaranteed to run into at least three random people you know from high school. All around, it’s a good time had by all.

9. North Coast Music Festival: In all of the hoopla over Lolla, this Annual Labor Day weekend festival tends to be overlooked, but it really shouldn’t. The North Coast Music Festival’s music lineup is consistently eclectic and the vibe is wonderfully laid-back and easy, like any good festival should be.

10. Riot Fest: In recent years, Riot Fest has slowly risen to the top to become known as the best music festival in Chicago. With uniquely excellent lineups that include names like Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, M.I.A., and the Wu-Tang Clan Riot Fest is sure to be three of the most fun days you can take attend in the Windy City.
