Blurry vision in corner of eye and hand numbness

Three times over the past several months I have had the following symptoms happen...

When im looking straight ahead...I can see blurry vision from the corner of my left eye. Its as though its all wavey. Everything ahead is fine. Its only only the left side of my vision from my left eye. But when this has left hand and fingers goes slightly numb too !. I seem to feel a bit dizzy, and scared to stand up or grasp anything in my left hand in case I drop it. This lasts for a maximum of about 10 minutes and then everything goes back to normal. It seems to have happened in each case within 2 or 3 hours of playing football (soccer!)

I have perfect vision normaly and have never worn glasses. Im fit and im 38 years old.
Can anyone help ? Any ideas ?

Many thanks

Hi Steve,
I think that this is definitely something that you need to bring to the attention of your Dr. I am sure there are many things that it could be but I had a stroke in Feb. and then several mini strokes after and my main symptoms were blurred vision and numbness and tingling in my face and hand. I am not saying that this is what is happening with you - it could be something in your back or one of many other things. But, I really feel that you should get it checked out. Good luck to you.

Those are also symptoms of multiple sclerosis. You should see your primary care doctor, who can refer you to a neurologist for further evaluation.

Hi. There's a condition called "Uhthoff symptom" that you can look up. It causes similar symptoms, but when the body heats up from exercise, not 2 or 3 hours later. I just thought I'd mention it anyway. Hope you have nothing serious.

Re: MS Symptoms?

I have had numbness and tingling in my left hand, arm and shoulder 24/7 for 3 weeks. It won't go away. I also have blurred vision more in the left eye, neck stiffness and this morning when I got up, I could'nt walk straight. I have felt lightheaded all morning. I went to the Dr yesterday and I am going for lab work tomorrow morning, sugar, Thyroid, CBC and Cholesterol. Tomorrow afternoon I am having an EEG. My Dr said that she wanted to check for nerve damage and to see if the numbness and tingling is coming from my fingers/hand upwards or from my neck downwards. Does it sound like I could have MS or something else besides carpel tunnel or a pinched nerve?
Anyone have any comment before I go tomorrow?

Re: Blurry vision in corner of eye and hand numbness

Hey man,
This sounds just like what i had happen to me, I had it happen in both of my eyes though....first my right eye would be blurry on the side and my right hand would be really cool to move around and make it look wavy, then the same thing on my left about 20 minutes later.....Just a migraine, i had this happen about 7 or 8 times a couple years ago....i havent had one since, maybe these are caused by different things going on in our lives.....But it is really annoying when it hits because you can't really focus on what your doing.....Well good luck with it
