Hi all, this is my first time writing on a discussion board but I’m terrified and need advice. I was driving to work yesterday morning when my peripheral vision went white and blurry, i got very dazed and couldn’t see the cars next to me. Luckily I didn’t crash. I went to my GP who sent me straight to A&E as he wanted a scan done to be safe. I got to A&E and was seen by an ophthalmologist who ran tests on my eyes and gave them the all clear. He has ordered tests for TIA but I have to wait for the appointment for that, nd have to go for a field vision test on Monday. I didn’t not get a scan done and am now so nervous that it will happen again or worse! The only thing he could think of was that it could be because of my contraceptive pill (I have been on it for 15 years on and off) he said I’m too young and too healthy (I don’t smoke) for this to happen and it’s worrisome! He didn’t tell me to stop taking the pill so I’m wondering if I should, or do I wait for Monday? It’s saturday now, I wish they had done all the tests last night, the worrying is really getting to me! Any advice appreciated!
