Pressure in eyes, Delayed vision reactions etc...

Posted , 5 users are following.

So for about three days now i have suspected a migrane. It feels like my brain is swelling in my skull and my eyes feel about ready to pop out of my head. Today i noticed that if i tilt my head my eyes will remain straight instead of immediatly turning with my head. It makes for a very odd and dissying effect. If i look too far up down or to the right or left i get a pain feeling like a bruised muscle in the back of my eye

I dont really have a lot of light sensitivity like normal when i have a migrane and my vision becomes blurry really fast if im not looking long distances constantly. One hour in my room and i can no longer see clearly across the street until i spend some time outside getting used to it.

    Hmmm, doesn't sound like migraines that I've had, but it could be. Can you get into see a dr to make sure it isn't something more serious?

    Hi lorna21842.

    I would suggest seeing an optician to check the pressure behind your eyes. I would also recommend having your GP do a blood test to check if you're absorbing vitamins correctly (specifically A, B1, B2, B3. B6, B12, C, D and E). I had eye pressure problems when I wasn't absorbing food efficiently and this led to the onset of many symptoms.

    Your sinuses can also be affected too, Worth reading up on links between these vitamins and eye problems.

      Almost every day I've been in pain for 3 years after a traumatic head injury (fell 400 feet). Lots of surgeries later, numerous doctor visits and neurologist visits later nothing was found MRI didn't show anything. It seemed absolutely hopeless. However based on research and observations in my case I believe it's related to physical pressure, more specifically sinus pressure (frontal sinus damage). I've lost count of the weeks I've experienced since April where I've had delayed vision and absolutely horrendous pain. Anyways if the doc can't figure out what's wrong, you have to be your own hero which may be a daunting and seemingly hopeless journey.

      Fortunately there is a lot of information out there. Write down a specific list of symptoms (exclude the barely qualifying ones, or jot them in parenthesis to prevent a false lead), look into the different types of head aches. See which one's you match with. From there try to find more specific ones based on your symptoms or areas of pain. It takes a lot of time and concentration, especially when you're in a ridiculous amount of pain and it's difficult to think. I'm in that position right this second. The world has given up on me. I've lost count of how many times it has seemed hopeless. But I promise you it is an endeavor worth fighting for.

      On a side note things like ibuprofen have added some relief but should be handled with care. My point is that if medications help, it can help you get closer to what the underlying issue is. All this time I thought it was pain around my brain. So did the doctors and neurologist. But apparently they were looking in the wrong places. Anyways I'll get confirmation on this in about a week, TC scan coming up along with a few doctor visits to try to end this nightmare once and for all.
