For the past week vision is severely distorted in one eye. I also have had sparatic numbness in my arms that I assumed was a pinched nerve because I am always sitting and typing. I went to an optometrist yesterday who said they found nothing wrong with my eye health. He also dialated my eyes to thoroughly check them. The problem is that it was done 23 hours ago....And they are still dialated.
My father suffered from a stroke in his 30's , his father died of a stroke at 62, and I am 32.
Am I stressing over nothing???

Sudden Loss of Vision In Ine Eye
Ms chavarry: I myself had just posted a msg like yours and did not receive any reply. Please let say you are not alone. I recently had my second
heart cath. Forty eight hours later I experienced about an 80% loss of vision
in my left eye. My cath Dr. And my eye Dr. Blaimed it on cateracts. This
was proven not to be the cause. It seems that I had a tia. I just had a mri/
mra scan and then had a ultrasound scan of my carroted arteries. I am
heading for an open heart bi-pass. Since many blockages were found.

I believe you had a tia (mini stroke). My vision did not improve yet. I wish
you the best of health. I am 77 yrs old. You are still young, and will recover
from your vision loss if you are determined..................Edithnbud bud

I also have the same problem, and have been experiencing it since I was 15. I am now 22 and get the numbness that seems to travel down my left side. I went to the hospital in may, spent 6 days, and they found nothing. I had to ct-scans, 2 mris, and 2 eeg's. I have a feeling my problem is linked to malnutrician (sp?) because I fail to eat a lot, and when I do, I seem not to have the problem.

Maybe we could talk about this, and possibly link something.

Vision Loss.
Jennifer:

thank you for responding to my letter. I am very sorry to hear that from
the age of 15 to now 22 that you have had this problem. The only one that
can explain it would be your Dr. I just had a ultrasound of my carroted
arteries and a mri/mra brain scan in the last 3 days. We didnt get the results
of either yet. Both of these procedures were done to determine if I did have
a tia (mini stroke) your symptoms are lasting far to long. You are a young
girl and you must persue it and demand an answer from your Dr. I wish
you luck in finding out what is causing your discomfort..................Bud

Thank you bud! I hope that it is nothing serious, but I will persue this as soon as I get insurance, and hopefully that is sooner than later. I am acually 21 (the previous post was a typo) but I will be 22 on may 31. As of the past couple weeks the numbness in my tongue has increased and it is on the left side in the far back. I hope to find out soon!

Sudden Vision Problems... Numbness
Bud and jennifer:
thank you both for responding to my plea for help. I am still having the same symptoms and one of my eyes don't seem to want to sync with the other eye (lazy eye). I have not been able to see a specialist yet. However, the eye today is not as bad as it was two weeks ago. The one thing that I have done differently is to put me first and not worry about everything around me. I have really been focusing on de-stressing. I am not malnutritioned, but had been really sick to my stomache and wasn't holding anything down. I don't know if it is related jennifer, but you are more than welcome to email me.
Keep me in your prayers and I will keep both of you in my prayers. You are wonderful.

Dear lynn and jennifer:

lynn I think you have the right positive attitude. I cant tell you how sorry that I feel for you both. You are both so young to have these very serious problems with your vision and numness. I failed to hear from either of you
mentioning parental or anyone giving you active or financial support ? At this
time you both need this. And both of you should not be going through this on
your own. Please get help you are both in my prayers and I know that
your problems will be solved

i am having open heart surgery this friday (4-2) my large main artery is
85% blocked. I know I will feel like a new man a month from now and will
buy another 10 yrs. My wife and I have our 54th anniversary on 8-13-04 !!
See how much you both have to live for ?............................Bud Wink

Hey, bud! I've been feeling really good lately, no probs *crossing fingers*. Good luck with your surgery, I will be praying for you, I hope to see 54 yrs with my hubby, we are coming up on 5 (june 15). As far as parental help financially, my mom doesn't have that much money either and I shouldn't expect her too, i've been married and have 3 children of my own.

Good luck, hun!

Dear jen and lynn:

just a quicky to thank you both for my big day tomorrow> it is a little
ironic that this will be my first operation in my life so far.. So naturally it
has to be a big one. I have so much love and prayers from my children. My grandchildren (7) and all of my friends(including you two) how can it go wrong?

This pc will be shut down in 10 min for about 7 days. I will e mail you guys
when I get back !.............I appologise presuming that you needed help
from your parents . I know how it is financially. My 3 kids have the same
problems, and many times being retired we cant help them. We should all
win the lottery !!. You two gals sound great.........God bless bud
