Green like a lime would suggest cyano, just a different color. It not always red.

What steve says.... I have a variety of cyno right now red, maroon, dark green, lime green.... The lime green is the best color
I get it once or twice a year???? This time it is hanging on longer then usual.

Any reason for the bi-annual event that you can pinpoint?
