When you have a headache, does it affect your vision?
« on: June 14, 2014, 09:54:26 PM »
I have a headache right now and I feel that my eyes aren't as strong as they normally are (yes, i wear glasses), and this is not the first time that it has happened. These headaches affect my vision and makes my eyelids very... droopy? where I just want to close my eyes because it hurts.


Does anyone else have headaches where it bothers their vision?

I just don't want it to be serious or something... I have a SERIOUS fear of going blind in which this does not help at all!


Edit: I've also had a loss of balance today. When I walk, I feel like I'm walking all over the place and i'm tipsy but really im still walking straight. My mind feels like it's all over the place. I can't think straight.  if this makes any sense....

Sounds like a migraine, I haven't had one in a while, but they use to make my vision blurry. I would say that your fear of going blind is definitely exacerbating your eye symptoms, if not causing them. As for your dizzy / loss of balance / feeling like you're not walking straight even though you are / not being able to think straight all happens to me and pretty frequently. To me it seems like you just have / had a headache that set off some anxiety. Most of your symptoms are most likely caused by your anxiety or atleast magnified 80x by your anxiety. Of course i'm not a doctor, but everything you've described for the most part i've gone through (and much much more). Just try to relax and think happy thought. Note: I also get bad headaches if I don't eat enough food or drink enough water if that could be a reason for you to get a headache in the first place.

Feel better and God bless, ENGR  :bigsmile:

Migraines are known to affect vision.  Consult your doctor.

Migraine Associated Vertigo matches your symptoms. Migraines can easily cause visual disturbances, sometimes ridiculous ones like rainbow zigzags and sometimes ones that just feel a bit off or wrong. Vertigo makes you feel off balance. You could see a doctor if it gets bad or you need peace of mind, but it really does sound like the migraine associated vertigo I get, except I'm used to it so it doesn't terrify me anymore.
