Strange Symptom

Posted , 7 users are following.

Okay Ladies,

I noticed that sometimes things seem to look a little darker. I don't mean this metaphorically. I mean literally like there is not enough light. I know anxiety can play some tricks on you physically and maybe that's what it is I don't really know. Has anyone else expierenced this?

    I can't remember what stage you are at now Jamie, but I did have a complaint something like.

    It was just over 12 years ago so early peri.

    I described it as if I had a dirty net curtain over my eyes, I went to the doctor and optician and all was fine then.

    About a year later needed reading specs, I could read ok in very bright light but in the evening artificial light sight was useless and now I've just been diagnosed with a cataract.

      I probably do need glasses. I stare at a lot of electronics every day so I wouldn't be surprised at that. Not to mention I have had some strange things happen due to anxiety, so it could be that as well. I don't know which stage I'm at. I don't get the headaches and sore breast anymore. I get the anxiety, doom and gloom, depression, night sweats, insomnia, internal shaking, lighter periods that come between 22 and 27 days. I only get the symptoms right before and after my period. Things calm down for about a week or two.

    Don't know if this is what you are speaking about, but everything seems a few shades darker to me. I went to eye dr, I have blepharitis, and my prescription had changed a little from about six months before.

      That would be it. Things seem a few shades darker at times. I am starting to realize that I have had strange things happen over the course of the last three years that may have been signs and I didn't recognize it. About a year ago I woke up with one eye swollen and it had scabs on it like I scratched it. Don't know where it came from. I thought I had an allergic reaction to something because at that time I did have a reaction to some hair dye. It didn't mess with my vision or anything. It went away in about a week and never happened again.

      It was about 6 months ago. Its time to see him again. I will mention it to him. I'm not sure if it's any relation to anything anymore. I don't put everything down to peri/meno. I just want to see if anyone else have some of these expierences.
