Can low thyroid cause blurred vision?

Can low thyroid cause blurred vision?

Low thyroid & vision: This is a very good question! . Here is my answer. Yes it can, but the levels of hypothyroidism (low thyroid) we see in practice are not likely to do so.
Essentially your thyroid function has to be so low that the patient's metabolism is actually stagnant.... Practically stopped! In a condition that used to be called myxedema, in which every organ function may be impaired. Even coma can occur. ...Read more

My neck has been stiff painful for 2 months now and have foggy memory and blurred vision, I'm seeing doctor soon, but what could be going on?

Stiff neck: Can be the result of irritation of the linings surrounding the brain (meninges) Chronic infections can occur in susceptible people (eg: immunodeficiency). I would agree this needs a complete evaluation SOONER rather than later.

What can cause severe neck pain, headache, blurred vision at 60?

What can cause severe neck pain, headache, blurred vision at 60?

New or old?: Severe headaches such as migraine can cause vision changes/blurry vision. Muscle/tendon/cervical spine problems can cause neck pain which can trigger headaches/migraines. If this has been ongoing for long time, I suspect cervical disc/muscle problems to cause headaches etc. If this is sudden/new, carotid-disection (bleeding into wall of vessel) and cause your symptoms. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
