See a doctor today: There can be different reasons for the spot in your vision, such as inflammation and swelling in the front or back of the eye, a retinal problem, as well as others. This is not something that you should try to let resolve itself. See an eye doctor immediately; they can properly diagnose and treat your vision very rapidly.

I hit my temple about a week ago. After that I was fine but since then when I move my head the spot hurts a little. No other symptoms. I'm worried?

I hit my temple about a week ago. After that I was fine but since then when I move my head the spot hurts a little. No other symptoms. I'm worried?

Not To Worry: Don't worry. That's a sensitive spot and the soreness can last a while. If there was anything really serious, it would have shown-up by now, especially in your age group. If you develop a serious headache or nausea then maybe you should let a doctor know, but the likelihood of that happening is really low. If you bump that same area again, it'll really hurt, so be careful.

I hit the left side of my head and didn't develop a headache until later in the day. The spot I hit hurts significantly more. Should I be worried?

SoundsOK-GiveItTime: Sounds like you're still standing, awake & conversant. Good! I'd only worry if the headache worsened &/or you started vomiting/getting dizzy &/or your vision was changing or the headache persisted for longer than a week or interfered with sleep or in general just bothered you over time. A headache after a head bump is common. Those other symptoms could be worrisome. Give it time, I'm sure you'll be OK

When I blink, I see a black spot in the corner of my left eye. Should I be worried?

When I blink, I see a black spot in the corner of my left eye. Should I be worried?

Floater: If the black spot moves with blinks, then it's likely in the vitreous. If not new and only one without flashes or decreased vision, may not be anything serious. If it's a fixed black spot, then should be checked out for a potential retinal or brain problem.

I am seeing a tiny black spot from my left eye when focusing in bright light. Should I be worried?

I am seeing a tiny black spot from my left eye when focusing in bright light. Should I be worried?

Probably floater: Your description sounds like a vitreous floater. As long as your visual acuity is not altered, I would recommend scheduling a routine eye examination. However, if your vision has been affected or if you have associated flashes, obscuration of vision, distortion, pain, double vision, then seek immediate eye examination appointment. Generally floaters are a normal development with aging.

My baby girl has a red spot on Her white of her eye. I am worried as to what it could be. Also, after every letter I type on here the cursor moves.

My baby girl has a red spot on Her white of her eye. I am worried as to what it could be. Also, after every letter I type on here the cursor moves.

That could be a: Broken blood vessel from delivery, depending on the age of your baby. If it seems painful, it could also be that she poked her eye with her nail, or someone else's. I would still recommend that you have her doctor examine her and he/she will be able to tell you for sure.

See a neurologist: Some people may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (tinnitus, difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. Complications (seizure, coma) can prolong hospitalization. See a neurologist for evaluation. Http://www. Webmd. Com/brain/post-concussion-syndrome

See ophthalmologist: The red spot most likely is from a burst blood vessel. It may or may not reabsorb. However to really get an answer you should see an eye doctor.

Recommend: Optic neuritis can be associated with several causes, but an issue with multiple sclerosis or NMO needs to be assessed fully. You need followup with both an ophthalmologist and neurologist, and get all of this clarified. Do NOT delay, as your treatment interventions may need modification.
