Lost vision on left side of both eyes

Can anyone help - I had an attack where I could only see the right hand side of a word. I tried covering each eye and it was the same with both eyes. Is this some sort of migraine or could it be something more serious? I had a very bad headache and felt dizzy if that helps.

Re: Lost vision on left side of both eyes

I've had some wierd stuff happen to me in my days, lol I'm still young. Sometimes, a black vortex looking thing would appear and block of something I was trying to read. Relax for now, but if it happens again go get checked out.

Re: Lost vision on left side of both eyes

that sounds to me like the aura preceeding a migraine. that's exactly what happens to me when i get them anyway ... did it last for about 20 minutes, till the headache kicked in?

Re: Lost vision on left side of both eyes

Thanks for your posts - yes I had the vision loss for about 20 minutes and then the headache kicked in, so it sounds the same as yours. How do you know that it is a migraine and not something more serious like a stroke or brain tumour? I get headaches nearly every day and rarely get one with vision loss like this episode. I just want to be sure it is not something more to worry about.

hmm, if it were a stroke, i'm pretty sure the symptoms would not simply disappear after 20 minutes. what you are describing sounds pretty textbook for migraine to me, especially with the headache, nausea. i wouldn't worry!
