Last night, I found out that closing my eyes wasn't necessary to stop the numbness and vomiting, but is necessary to completely stop the pain. On the other hand, the pain was minimal.
The blind spot and scintilation, on the other hand, were the WORST I can remember. Most all the left half of my vision just wan't there. Reading (I was stubborn and insisted on playing WoW though it) was... interesting, but just barely possible.
That was really wierd.
