Eye Problems?

Question by mtox: Eye Problems?
Alright well yesterday the top of my left eye was hurting. It was like the top part that is inside the socket. I thought it was just some random thing and didn’t worry about it. Then earlier today it happened again with my right eye. And while my right eye was hurting, I had blurry vision and a small black spot on my left eye. All of these problems also brought up headaches.

I would say they (yesterday and today) both happened for like 1 1/2-2 hours.

Any help on what this might be?

It sounds like migraine symptoms. Migraine are sometimes preceded by spots or halos in vision and then pain on one side of the head. Sometimes you can just have the vision disturbance called an ocular migraine withoout even having the headache. If the pain is not really bad, you can probably take somethin over the counter like Excedrin or Tylenol Migraine but if it persists or the pain is bad, see your doctor.

It sounds vaguely migraine-related. Are you under any stress at the moment? I ask because I used to get pain in one eye, progressively losing the peripheral vision to grey fuzz until I lost central vision too, then the other eye would go the same way (fortunately the second eye generally kept the central vision though). At the time I think i was under stress, and it very, very rarely happens now that I’m much more relaxed.

Of course, if it gets worse and/or keeps happening for a relatively long time (your eyes; your definition of ‘relatively long’) then you should get it checked out.
