intermittant blurry vision when walking
for approx the last year, i have had blurry vision upon walking/motion. it always goes away after i sit down for about 5-10 minutes, but comes back after i start moving again. its almost like looking through frosted glass. it was worse in the summertime. With this my balance goes a bit off and uneasy/unsure of my direction, sort of like you had just a little too much to drink. it doesnt tend to happen the minute i stand up, but only after walking for a few minutes.
fyi, i am a 26 year old female, caucasian, very healthy eater (practially vegetarian but get all the vitamins/iron etc.), not overweight, smoker of a few a day (but quit while this was going on and it didn't make a difference and i got so stressed i started again). casual drinker, never obscene.
i have been to the optometrist (only result = glasses for computers and reading), the gp (result = nothing), the opthamologist (result = nothing), the neuro-opthamologist (result = nothing). all of my blood tests are clear, blood sugar fine, no sign of ms/brain tumour according to the neuro-opth, but i have not yet had a CAT or MRI done. some of them believe me, but i think my gp thinks i'm making it up and all he wants to do is put me on antidepressants. sure i'm depresed, but only b/c no one will tell me what is wrong so i tend to think/entertain the worst.
i went to the acupuncturist a few weeks ago, who told me that my pulse was too slow and puts me on all this herbal medication taht i truly cannot afford to follow through. i tell my mom and she says that my dad's family has a history of low blood pressure.
it sounds very feasible that it is low blood pressure, but my doctorr said my blood pressure was low, but that that was good and i shouldn't worry. i went to the emergency room at the hospital (stupid and a waste of time, but i am desperate), where they said it was dead on normal. this was even when i was so stressed and upset (close to hyperventilating upset), which makes me wonder if they interpreted the results incorrectly.
i feel very vulnerable and unsafe when i walk around by myself, especially at night. it is making me seriously depressed, i cant work, i can't study, my relationships are suffering. i feel like no one will or can help me. please, if you know anyone or have heard of anything similiar to this, let me know. thank you.
