Hope you're all doing alright. I was wondering if anybody else has blurry vision, spots, light sensitivity? I figure it's probably from the migraines but I don't always have a migraine. Sometimes I'll look a certain direction and it will make me see spots and get dizzy. Like when I look down at my armpit while shaving. And when I close my eyes to rinse off I get dizzy.
Some of it may also be my neck because it is messed up spine wise and I also have a dowager's hump that swells when I do lots of reaching or fold laundry.
the only thing i have that has to do with my eyes is; I wear glasses for the astygmatism that I have in my left eye, and EXTREME sensitivity to light and wind. I can just forget about puting any eyemakeup on if i am going outside in the sun or wind because my eyes will just leak like crazy. they are constantly watery. I hate it!
[ removed ] now i am really confused! I have 2 arachnoid cysts in my brain, and I am now posting on the [ removed ]AAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHH
I feel like I will never find out what my problem is.... AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH the neurologist says the cysts dont cause symptoms and e didnt know what to tell me............
I think there is a medication for dizziness , my Opa used to take it.

I have been called a dizzy dame lots of times, but do not suffer from this right now. I used to have spells of this, but then again I attributed this to low blood pressure. My eyes are all messed up with floaters and I do have blurring with light sensitivity so I type like in a cave with spotlight on screen as I cannot stand any glare. However, I have extremely dry eyes and have to put drops in them continually. Shaving armpits is like a major project, but worst one is plucking eyebrows. My neck is all messed up from really bad arthritis, but I rarely get headaches which is amazing. Instead my neck muscles will get such spasms that I feel like I have a board crammed from neck all the way to brain with extreme pain to hold head up. Fortunately this does not happen too often. (TT)
Hi There! I've been told before my my eye doctor that my spots are floaters, but I've never been told my retina is detaching. Maybe that's a catchall phrase for we don't know. But I also see spots that are part of my vision and then disappear once I stop feeling dizzy. Like the way you get fuzzy before you faint.
Hope that helps. I also have lupus so my eye thing could be from either one even though my ANA has been negative for along time.
I was dxed with Torticolis about 5 yrs. ago. I take Klonopin and Inderal for it and migraines and Bextra and Ultracet for Fibro/Osteoarthritis in the cervical spine. No meds. for the Bell's Palsy. Prozac for the clinical depression and ptd.
It's tough to smile with these things going on in my life, but I do to keep from crying.... No pun intended!!
May you always have love to share and family & friends who truly care. I care!
I also have those spots. The eye doctor said that they were floaters and they were harmless. She also checked for detached retina and said that the two were not associated. She said that the gel ( I can't spell the name, something like vitrous humor) in your eye starts to dry as you age and that causes the floaters. I was told that everything looked good and I good return in three years.
I remember the first time I saw the floaters. I swung in the air because I thought they were gnats. Thank God I found out what they were or people would have thought I was a former boxer who got one too many punches to the cranium. (TT)
