Colleen: see posting 5 July 2013. The ophthalmologist wrote ' to be honest I could not find any pathology to account for this scotoma . . . '

NatureChick: sun exposure and optometrist see posting 1 Aug 2013

The only reason I am posting all this is because this symptom so far appears to be unique. In case it has a celiac basis this seems to be one place to look for answers..  

 

I believe you said in one post you saw the Hospital Eye Clinic.  Then you saw an Optometrist.  I asked if you have seen an Opthalmologist.  

 

Good luck with the Nightshades  :)

As people still seem to be reading this thread here is an update. After eight bouts of the scotomas through the summer (they were continuous through June - August) they disappeared at the end of September. We live in southern England and the National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit at the University of Worcester kindly sent me pollen counts for near this part of the country. The scotomas started with the onset of the birch pollen season but it was not obvious that the gaps coincided with changes in pollen count. I did a DST home FastCheck POC IgE blood test for inhalant antigens about a week after the last scotoma and there was a weak positive to birch pollen and stinging nettle pollen.

This is interesting, I noticed some night blindness in the past couple of years, worse in one eye. I never used to wear glasses before and I suddenly had to get them for distance at 30... before that, I was pretty much 20/20. How frustrating that it could be related.

After doing the IgE test I was sent September nettle pollen data for Worcester (which included all members of the Urticaceae). Levels decreased to low about the 11th and almost disappeared by the end of the month. The scotomas could therefore be a reaction to pollen but I will perhaps try to do an IgE test for tomato allergy next year if the scotomas return.

I discovered recently that I react to harvest dust in the air.  I wonder if allergies to something like that could cause eye trouble.  I see you are on to that trail with the nettles and birch idea.  I live near a grain silo (within 10 miles) and the unseen dust evidently gives me some of my old celiac symptoms.  Over recent summers it has seemed so mysterious this sudden reappearance of symptoms.  Late this year I felt the old fatigue and mind fog, and was instructed to put on a dust mask.  After 3 or 4 days I felt much better.

 

Years ago, I remember a time driving at night when small signs turned to  blurs.  I don't have this problem anymore, It did go away when I went on a supplements as recommended by my chiropractor. PCB Have you had your nutrient levels checked?  I can't remember if that were mentioned above.
