Spotlight on: Dennis McKeever ๐Ÿ’ชย 

โ€œMy nameโ€™s Dennis, Iโ€™m 24 years old from New York. My Visual Snow started back in the fall of 2017 around 6-8 months after I had my first migraine w/ aura. At first I noticed some minor static on my wall and didnโ€™t think much of it. In January 2018, I had a migraine a few days before my semester started. When I got to class, I noticed something was terribly wrong. I was seeing outlines around my teacher when they stood in front of a whiteboard, after images, flickering vision. I was extremely scared. I searched the Internet for countless hours to try and find something that might explain what I was seeing and was overwhelmed when I learned of Visual Snow. To date, My worst symptoms are light sensitivity, palinopsia, fine motor tremors (worsen after exercise), twitching, and a constant stiff/sore neck. I try to remain very active as I find that regular exercise helps my symptoms, or at least helps me forget about them. Knowing that there are other people who suffer with the same thing comforts me tremendously. I try and remain as positive and patient as I can while we wait for an answer, but some days really do suck. Iโ€™d like to thank the Visual Snow Initiative for their commitment to this issue and urge anyone who feels like they need to talk to someone to reach out to me. Thanks.โ€

New Visual Snow Syndrome Study!

The VSI has been working with Dr. Tsang in California and Dr. Shidlofsky in Texas. Both doctors have been highly successful in reducing, and in some cases, eliminating symptoms of Visual Snow Syndrome in their patients. When we learned that their philosophies and methods were strikingly similar and effective, the VSI put them in contact with each other. They are now collaborating on an enhanced VSS protocol. They will be accepting new patients for this study.

Today, the VSI will be releasing a series of informational videos on our YouTube channel in which Dr. Tsang and Dr. Shidlofsky discuss their experience in treating VSS. The VSI will also post video testimonials from their patients. We are enthusiastic and optimistic to share Dr. Tsangโ€™s and Dr. Shidlofskyโ€™s insights with the VSS community. If you would like to make an appointment with either Dr. Tsang or Dr. Shidlofsky, their contact information will appear at the end of each video. Watch the videos here:

We recognize that the majority of people with VSS cannot travel to California or Texas to take part in this study. Therefore, once the study has concluded, Dr. Tsang and Dr. Shidlofsky have agreed to make a series of instructional videos that will show their step-by-step protocol, which can be done at home. They will offer suggestions and techniques that will allow the use of household items versus in-office medical equipment. The VSI will also make these videos available.

We would like to thank Dr. Tsang, Dr. Shidlofsky, Kelsey NaPier, and Michael Neustifter for their kind and generous contribution to the VSS community.
