Visual Snow (VS) has (thankfully) been the topic of more and more conversation lately. Earlier this year, a presentation at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting on visual snow was entitled Visual Snow: a New Disease Entity Distinct from Migraine Aura.
Sure, it’s different from migraine aura – but what is it?
We’ve talked about visual snow before, and the comments following the posts have taken the discussion further. Read Persistent Migraine Aura and Visual Snow? and Visual Snow and Persistent Migraine Aura – tests and treatments.
Now researchers are trying to delve further into the mysteries of VS – exactly what is happening in the body that makes VS happen?
Leading the research is neurologist and headache specialist Dr. Peter J. Goadsby, director of the UCSF Headache Center. He is working along with Dr. Christoph Schankin, also at the UCSF.
I believe at the moment they are looking for people willing to do a phone interview. If you’re dealing with VS, please take the time to email the research team, and push forward our knowledge of this little understood (and little treated!) condition.
