My eyes started going blurry when I went schizophrenic.

Let us know what happens to you, if you can do anything more than drool on the keyboard tommorrow morning.

Sounds like a migrain

IANAD, but here's a list: migraine, Bell's Palsy, tumor, stroke.

That's in general order of preference. I'd be inclined to at least call my doctor and describe the symptoms.

See how I feel in the morning.. Me thinks migrain. Though never remember having one.. Just your run of the mill headaches once in a while.

I hope it's not what I'm thinking. If it is, your dick will fall off next.

You're having a stroke, take some aspirin.

When that happened to me, it was a stroke. Could also be a blood sugar problem.

Go get checked out.

You guys are making me nervous, but it is subsiding.

Yep. With a migraine, you'll most likely find that your eyes become hyper-sensitive to light. Mine always did. Don't know about the pressure, but accompanied by blurred vision (never occured with my migraines), that's reason enough for a trip or call to a doctor.

Could be a tooth problem.

Asa is an anticoagulant. Strokes can be caused by either clots closing off the blood supply to the brain or cause by bleeding. If its bleeding, he will bleed out even more.

ETA: don't forget ...difficult to treat and the invasive forms are often fatal.

I suffer from optic migraines on occasion. Can happen in either eye, buts usually only one. Normally brought on by stress - even though I sometimes don't feel stressed.

Oddly enough, first experience I had when I was diamond ring shopping for my wife.

Starts with a slow blurring vision, kind of creeps in from the outer corner....gradually encompassing my view. I can still see out of that eye, but its almost as if I'm looking through a kaleidoscope.

Then after that subsides in about 10-20 minutes, vision clears, but then the migrane comes.

As soon as the vision starts blurring - pop a couple migraine meds.

Still waiting for the day I'm gonna find a dead hooker my closet after the pain goes away

Welcome to the world of migraines!

I had one today. And yesterday. And Monday. And I'm out of meds. Guess what scotch and red wine does!


Anyway, go see a doctor. It could be migraines, but a fuzzy vision or such in your eye can be migraines OR a brain tumor. Serious, go get a MRI if it persists.

If it's a migraine, and you've never had them before, welcome to the club.
Mine first went like this: My vision in my left eye slowly degraded over a week. I went from a small spot to about 75% of my vision obscured in my left eye. This made me, well, panic. Except the eye doctor saw nothing and the MRI and CT scan were clean. Then, on a Monday night, I got the worst headache I have ever had. Like somebody drilling a hole in my head. It hurt so much I was writhing on my bed like I was trying to get away from it. Honostly, if I could've made it the 15 feet to my 92FS that would've been it. It went on forever, and then stopped. Next day I had migraine medication.

The meds will fix it. Unless you run out. There's a small flashing spot over my left eye RIGHT NOW. goddamnit.

Cliff notes: Migraine. Maybe. Go see a doc.
