What does bilateral acute sphenoid sinusitis mean? My eyes have been swelling together and lots of headaches as well as blurred vision and dizziness.

Sphenoid sinusitis: This is a rare but dangerous sinusitis. The optic nerve travels very close to the sphenoid sinus and an infection can cause inflammation around the neurovascular supply of the eyes. You will most likely need surgery by an ENT to open and drain the sphenoid sinuses. ...Read more

What are the signs of an brain aneurysm I have been getting sick for the past 6 days also I have been getting real bad dizzy spells and bad head pain above the eyes what could this mean?

What are the signs of an brain aneurysm I have been getting sick for the past 6 days also I have been getting real bad dizzy spells and bad head pain above the eyes what could this mean?

There: There are many causes for the symptoms you have but brain aneurysm is not at the top of the list. Migraines can cause headache and "dizzyness" for example. Only a physical exam including neurologic evaluation can better define the cause for your symptoms. You may need imaging of your brain depending on the details of your symptoms and the findings on exam. ...Read more

My head feels heavy, dizzy, eye vision is blurred a bit, feel like sleeping but for short periods only. What is this?

I went to hospital for tests as I have 1 sided numbness dizziness and the consultant said I have a pale retina in 1 eye. What can this mean?

Pale retina: Please repost: Did the consultant remark that you have a pale retina while (s)he was looking in your eye? If so, did you ask him/her right then what it could mean? If so, what was the answer? If not, why not? If (s)he did not say this during the exam, where is it stated? ...Read more

I had a sudden onset of blurred vision in right eye, dizziness, nausea, and felt faint. What could this be symptomatic of?

I had a sudden onset of blurred vision in right eye, dizziness, nausea, and felt faint. What could this be symptomatic of?

Low blood pressure?: If this occurred after a change in position (lying to standing) this could be low blood pressure (postural hypotension), this type of blurry vision only lasts seconds. If the vision loss lasted >15-30 min with associated flashing lights or headache this could be an ocular migraine. Due to your age I do not suspect other more serious conditions. If it happens again see your doctor to check your bp. ...Read more

Superficial blood clot in arm. Sudden severe blurred vision in left eye with dizziness nearly passing out. Connection? Back to ER?

Superficial blood clot in arm. Sudden severe blurred vision in left eye with dizziness nearly passing out. Connection? Back to ER?

Emergency Room: Whether or not it is related, with any acute sudden change (in this case, your vision in the left eye), you belong in the ER to get it evaluated. You never relayed the cause of the superficial blood clot, nor underlying medical problems, so it is hard to say if it is related; but if the vision suddenly went blurry, get to the ER to get a diagnosis! Don't lose your vision waiting for an online deba ...Read more

I had sudden peripheral vision loss/blurred vision in one eye. Lasted 10 seconds. Panicked and got a bit dizzy. 8 months pregnant. Was this a tia?

I had sudden peripheral vision loss/blurred vision in one eye. Lasted 10 seconds. Panicked and got a bit dizzy. 8 months pregnant. Was this a tia?

Unlikely: Tia's are older folks problems and extraordinarity rare in your age group. More likely you had a type of migraine in which the vision in the right half (or left half) of both eyes went out. The rapid recovery makes this more likely. If it happens again, cover one and then the other eye and see if it is happening in both eyes. Meanwhile prepare for the end of your pregnancy best for the baby. ...Read more

After a myriad of gradually onset problems (double vision in left eye, memory problems, dizziness, headaches etc) my doctor said my mri showed a brain lesion. I have an appt with a neurologist but not for a while. What could this mean??

After a myriad of gradually onset problems (double vision in left eye, memory problems, dizziness, headaches etc) my doctor said my mri showed a brain lesion. I have an appt with a neurologist but not for a while. What could this mean??

Could be anything: When I write my radiology reports, I don't expect the ordering doctor to ONLY say, "You have a brain lesion, see this guy/gal." The MRI report should have been discussed with you in more detail.
If the ordering doc had no idea what the radiologist was describing, he/she should have called the radiologist directly before your office visit.
See the neurologist soon and get this cleared up. ...Read more

6 days late for my period, not pregnant. Keep experiencing dizzy spells and blurred vision. Right eye feels weird too and brain fog. What's going on?

6 days late for my period, not pregnant. Keep experiencing dizzy spells and blurred vision. Right eye feels weird too and brain fog. What's going on?

Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. An in-person exam is needed to evaluate dizzy spells and new blurred vision. ...Read more
