For the past couple of weeks I have had every couple of days, periods of up to half an hour of my vision becoming blurred. Anyone ever had this and do you think I should get it checked by Dr or Optician?
I have blurred vision when I'm getting a migraine/for a short while after it's gone away.
I also have this a)when I've been playing dd's psp for too long, and b)when I've slept with my hand jammed up against my eye. I don't know why I sleep with a hand on my face, but I do. Always wake up with strange red pressure marks on my face, too. I look like an idiot for at least half an hour
I am wondering whether there is some connection to me stopping breast feeding and my periods coming back. The first time I noticed it was a day before I had my first period in nearly 18 months (2 weeks ago). Could it be my hormones?
I had something similar a few years back, conclusion was that it was a retinal migraine - basically non-harmful except for the annoyance of it. I had an astute GP suggest that it might be due to tension in my neck restricting blood flow up the back of my neck. Went to an osteopath who worked on releasing my neck (I hold a lot of stress there) and it eventually went away. If you've been breastfeeding, that can do a job on your neck.
Note though that I did not experience any dizziness or disorientation, it was just pure blurred vision. If you're feeling dizzy or disoriented, I would got to GP as soon as possible.
