Hi, I just wondered if anyone is able to help me or advise? 9 weeks ago one evening my vision suddenly changed. It's very hard to describe what is happening but at first I thought it may be a migraine as I had flashing lights in my vision. Took migraine relief but it didn't go. It just never went away and I cannot see properly and it's very distressing. I've been to the opticians who said my eyes are fine. I've been referred to an opthamologist who also said my eyes are fine. My GP has run blood tests to check if I'm deficient in anything and checked for diabetes. All OK again. I was then referred to Neurologist who I've just come back from seeing and he is sending me for a scan but is 99.99% sure it will come back fine. That is good news but he has no idea what it is and suggested it was a visual phenomenon that will probably go away in its own time. Now I'm quite upset by that because my life has totally changed and I can't drive very far, I can't be out for very long because it's such a strain to see things that I'm exhausted. It's even very difficult to speak to someone and look at them because I can't see their whole face and it's so hard to concentrate on what they are saying. I'm driving mysef crazy with worry but just hope that maybe someone else has had similar symptoms and can give me some advice?
I don't have any other health problems apart from a narrowing of two discs in my neck but neurologist says that wouldn't affect my vision. A few months ago I kept wakng in the night with numb hands and this lasted a few weeks but he said I must of been sleeping on my hands and dismissed it. What is going on ??
