What could cause this and what does it mean for my eyesight?
I went for an eye test this morning as I have been having daily migraines and trouble focusing. The tests took 1 1/2 hours and I had to have some done again and for longer. One result is that my pupils are not dilating as they should be. The optician is writing to my GP to ask if it could be a result of my medication but also said I need to see the GP about the migraines. I am currently having my 3rd migraine of the day but the optician said there is nothing wrong with my eyes that would be causing them. I also felt very sick after having the light flashes in my eyes and some tests done.
I haven't changed meds that recently that they could be the cause of this to be honest. I did the nhs direct thing and it said I needed a call back but it was 2-5 hours and I can't stay up that late. I am planning on going to bed in a minute. I feel sick the pain is so bad and would rather be in labour.
I get migraines too. At an eye test ages ago I was told my pupils don't dilate properly, so I find night vision hard. I also have problems with bright lights or flashing lights. In the morning, sometimes I find one pupil is larger than the other. No reason's ever been found for this. I go for the co-codamol and ibroprofin approach. I was told if I needed anything stronger then the GP would prescribe something.
I haven't taken the triptan as too scared to. He said to only take one a week and at the time of the migraine I was having to pick the kids up in a few hours and I didn't know if it would wipe me out. I am going to be shortly.
