    Visual Hallucinations after stroke
    LMH930 posted:
    I experienced a left frontal stroke during brain surgery (to remove a meningioma tumor) 2 years ago. Recovery from both was very positive. I do have a yearly MRI. 7 months ago I began seeing flashes of blue color which appeared only on the dashboard of my car while driving. Believe me, I realize this sounds strange! The flashes of color are now appearing daily and not just when I'm driving my car. My neurologist is aware of this and says this is normal after a stroke. I wonder why this just began 7 months ago, and I didn't have visual hallucinations immediately after my stroke. Has anyone exerienced this?
