Why do I occasionally see fast moving sparks in my field of vision?

Why do I occasionally see fast moving sparks in my field of vision?

Exam can help tell: Seeing flashes of light can be associated with eye problems (pvd, retinal tear, etc) or high blood pressure. In pregnancy it can be associated with preeclampsia also. Most doctors want to be called or have a patient seen quickly if such symptoms. A physical and eye exam plus evaluation of blood pressure and tests can help determine what's occurring. ...Read more

Sometime I see clear prism shapes moving around in my vision. Yesterday I had my eyes dialated and was told that the blood vessels in my left eye are enlarged, but I was not told what that could be, only told to see a neurologist.?

Please repost: Who diAlated your eyes? An optometrist or an ophthalmologist? If an optometrist, I would see an ophthalmologist. If an ophthalmologist, call them up & ask for more information. It’s common for patients to be given information & either not to hear it or almost immediately forget it. You have a right to an explanation in terms you understand. ...Read more

My middle finger on my right hand started moving involuntarily. I felt a throbbing in my wrist and turned my arm over I could see the vein throbbing.

Muscle Spasm: This may be a muscle spasm. These spasms sometimes occur without identifiable cause. The twitching "vein" was likely a muscle. If this continues, or worsens, would recommend seeking medical attention. ...Read more

Is standing still to long that's bad or standing a moving around too long that's bad. Because I don't want to get leg vein problems and I'm 18?

Is standing still to long that's bad or standing a moving around too long that's bad. Because I don't want to get leg vein problems and I'm 18?

Better to move: The movement causes the leg muscles to contract moving blood up and out of your lower legs. Also recommend "support stockings" if you are really worried about varicose (swollen)veins. ...Read more

After passing a stool and wiping I found a long white vein. This has happened twice now at first thought it was a worm but not moving why is this?

After passing a stool and wiping I found a long white vein. This has happened twice now at first thought it was a worm but not moving why is this?

Mucus on stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies & probably a sigmoidoscopy should be considered, but a more extensive evaluation may be warranted. ...Read more

Hematoma: What your are describing sounds like a hematoma which is escaped blood from the vein which has accumulated in the tissue around the vein. This is why the skin is bruised (black and blue). The pain is from the irritation from the multiple needle sticks. Apply ice for the first 48 hours then heat. Ibuprofen will also help. This should resolve over about one week. ...Read more

Not sure: Almost impossible to diagnose over the computer. Could be nerve impingement causing your symptoms, could be vascular issues. Get a dr. To evaluate you and order some tests if needed to properly diagnose you. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a clearly visible vein in my right arm that usually isn't and a pain there. It tends to hurt more when I'm moving the arm and it looks slightly swollen. Also, I am on birth control, so I was wondering if it might be a side effect, and if so what to

Birth: Birth control pills are well known to increase the risk of blood clots, and what you're describing could be a clot-related process called superficial thrombophlebitis. That condition is usually not dangerous, even if it's painful, but if that's what's going on you should probably discontinue or change your birth control.

Your doctor should be able to tell you if this is thrombophlebitis and, if not, what it actually is. ...Read more

I see a dark spot in the middle of my field of vision plus a bunch of new floaters?

I see a dark spot in the middle of my field of vision plus a bunch of new floaters?

Floaters: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous (jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read more
