Blurred Vision after a deep tissue massage to the shoulders

User Profile
A week ago I had a deep tissue massage that was an hour and a half. Shoulders and neck and back with hot towels and deep pressure. I've gotten a hundred massages, but this one left my eyes blurry for the next 3 hours and I felt tired and a little off. I kept drinking water, ate dinner and drank more water. The next day drank more water. My guess is that there were toxins ( a lot of them) released in my system and it affected me. I can't seem to find any reasoning or answers online as to why this happens to some people. It obviously does, but no one knows why? My physical came out fine; I'm 48 white female; eyes are fine/no glasses needed. Just a wacky happening with a long deep tissue massage.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its due to enhance metabolism. Toxins don't absorb so much quickly in clinically significant amount.
Fasting blood sugar should be done to rule out diabetes mellitus.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
