So today started pretty normal, got up had breakfast, read emails, started to work on paperwork etc. Then about noon I was feeling really weird, I had blind spots in my eyes and it felt like the lights were dim. Even when I looked at myself in the mirror my eyes seemed weird and if I tried to read anything there were parts I could not see. I called the Doc office but they were closed for lunch.
I was feeling nauseous with all this going on, so Toby and I laid down, and I got up before Jeff got home from work. I took an excedrin and then I called my Doc. They said that I should go right to urgent care especially with the whole eye sight thing.
So Jeff, Eric and I headed into town. They got me right in, took my blood pressure and checked my eyes. I had my first ever pin prick cause they wanted to check my sugar levels. Ouch! I feel sorry for anyone that has to do that regularily, that hurt. My sugar level was fine.
The Doc finally came in, he wasn't Dr. Cullen but he was nice anyway. He asked what I did for a living, and I told him I was a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, and I could not go blind. He said what I was describing sounded like an ocular migraine, and he thinks that when I was in high school and had two strokes that they also sounded like ocular migraines and not a stroke. They gave me a shot of imitrex and had me lay down for a half hour, I had the nurse tell Jeff and Eric to go get something to eat. The Doc said I would get a head rush and whew, it sure did make me feel weird. About half hour later, we headed back home.
I feel better now, vision is getting better, but I am gonna head to bed, and hopefully will be back to normal, well at least my normal, by morning.
I don't have anything to post picture wise, but will definitely find something for you tomorrow!
Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
