Yes, PCP, or ED: Passing out and hitting your head with a new change in smell, as well as headaches deserves an evaluation. Your split lip may need stitches too. I recommend going your pcp or your local emergency department to review your symptoms and injuries. Passing out syncope) requires a work up. ...Read more

Eye movers: Not sure what rsa means but your eye problem is most likely a disorder in which means an eye muscle in one eye is not functioning well, possibly because a nerve to that muscle malfunctions. Double vision on downgaze can be seen in nerve damage near the brainstem from a variety of causes but because the nerve involved is so small, even powerful scanners may be unable to detect them. See eye doc 1st. ...Read more

MY son split his eye open and has had dissolvable stitches can i wash his hair it has been 6 days since having them ?

MY son split his eye open and has had dissolvable stitches can i  wash his hair it has been 6 days since having them ?

Sounds fine: Washing one's hair should not be a problem if an eyebrow or eyelid laceration has been repaired. During the first 1-2 days after the repair, one can try to avoid soaking the wounded area. After 3-4 days, the wounded area should already be sealed over by new skin cells or a protective scab. If it's been 5-6 days, taking a normal shower sounds fine to do. I wouldn't yet rub or scrub the wound area. ...Read more

Lately i've been having a bright light shoot through my left eye, I lose vision for that split second. What could this be?

Detached retina: 'flashes of light' with vision loss may be a sign of detached or 'detaching' retina which is an emergency. The retina is located at the back of the eye and is important for normal vision. Detached retina can be painless and progress to vision loss--so it is best to get seen by an ophthomologist right away. ...Read more

What's the difference between photopsia and visual seizures? I had split-second flashes of light so i saw my eye md, but he found nothing wrong.

What's the difference between photopsia and visual seizures? I had split-second flashes of light so i saw my eye md, but he found nothing wrong.

Photopsia is a flash: Of light that will nearly always occur unilaterally, or in one eye only. A migraine causes "scintillating scotomas". This is a scintillating absence of vision which typically does not lateralize - meaning it is not possible to say that it is in one eye or the other. A "visual seizure" or occipital lobe seizure mimics retinal migraine as both are due to occipital lobe dysfunction. ...Read more
