    Default Problem with vision

    Sorry I haven't been on lately. I am having a lot of trouble with my vision. Last week I started having double vision and then they put me in the hospital to see what was going on. Lots and lots of tests later they don't know what is causing it but have ruled out any of the really serious stuff (stroke, blood clot, brain swelling, tumor, nerve damage). I have trouble seeing pretty much anything with my left eye. It doesn't track with the other eye. Feels weird cause I can feel it move separately from the right eye. I am having a lot of vertigo and nausea with it. Just laying in bed I get light headed and dizzy. Walking is a whole nuther story!! I won't even go into what a car ride is like right now. To say the least eating has been a challenge. Nothing sits well except broth or jello.

    They said it should slowly go away, but they don't really know that, they can't since they don't know what caused it. So for now I just have to deal with it and work on changing some things in my diet. They said cutting back on sugar and other things may help even though I am not diabetic. Also just as a precaution they have put me on the lowest level of blood pressure medication even though I don't have high blood pressure. It's all part of the guessing game to figure out what is going on. One of the doctors actually said it might just be from stress.

    I go back to the neurologist in a month, but I sure hope this doesn't hang around that long!! Maybe I can go in and say I am finally seeing well and he'll say great, no charge!! LOL!!

    Being on here is not a lot of fun. Hard to read since you have to move your eyes to read. And I can't focus well so i am actually using a magnifying glass to help me see the screen on things I can't enlarge. Makes for an interesting time!! LOL!!

    Any prayers sure would be appreciated!! I'll keep you posted and get on here as I feel up to it.

    Prayers coming your way! Sounds like you have your hands full. With the lowest dose of blood pressure pills, if it is hydrocholathiazide (spell) it is nothing more than a water pill, also used as a thyroid medication. I have borderline high blood pressure most of the time and so they gave me a waterpill to help remove excess water from my system and heart. Let's hope that is all it is. I hope things get better for you. I know it is scary when we start getting problems with our eyes. I am also getting more problems but I already knew this was to be expected because I was in a very serious car accident when I was a senior in High school and there was eye damage. I know I will eventually be considered legally blind ~ even knowing that, it still is a very scary thing. I feel for you and fully understand. Good Luck and I do hope it is only a temporary thing.
