Symptoms Question

Hey gang! I know we can be a pretty quiet group, but I have a question that'll maybe liven the place up a bit.

Lately, my symptoms have been pretty forthcoming. Pain, numbness, some very mild amount of delay in muscles, nothing too troublesome. But also, I've been having a LOT of headaches and migraines.

This morning, I woke up. And I had triple/quadruple vision. So I shut my eyes and opened them again, in case I was dreaming the wierd stuff. However, my daughter jumping on the bed next to me wasen't a dream, nor was the wacky vision, as I affirmed when I opened my eyes a second time. Yup, still funky. So I shut them again. Opened them... yup, still wierd. I try to look around, and hey, more fun stuff, my vision, wierd already as it was, was now jumping all over the place. Ooookay. So this time I shut them again and waited a little bit. Opened them again, still wierd, but hey, only double! So I just tried to focus carefully, and slowly, it started to clear up and all was well and returned to 'normal'.

So... anyone else have this symptom of BP's before? Maybe it's not a symptom? Something else? I dunno, so I thought I would ask. Went to the eye doctors already, my eyes are fine and my nerve is fine, from what he could see. So.. I have a call into my GP. In the meantime, I thought I would see what you fine people have to say!

I'm sorry for both of you. I had BP a year ago and it is 99% gone. I can still see it in pictures, that my eyes are different. I'm sorry your doctor, but I'm sure he didn't mean to hurt your feelings.

On a funny note, and maybe TMI.... but my OBGYN told me I had asymetrical boobs(which is common)... I asked, "could it be b/c you told me I had to hold my arm above my head?" She laughed and said, "yes".
People can be so insensitive. I had BP March-May 2003. I'm about 98% recovered, but from time to time my right eye (the side with the BP) still waters a LOT or be completely dry and sandy. I suppose my nerves aren't completely healed. People will ask "why is your eye so red" or "why are you always putting eye drops". It's totally annoying.
Hey sweetie :)

I've not had anything like that, nor have I heard of anything like that, sorry :(

Is it back to normal again now? *huge hugs*
Claire,
I've had my BP for 15 months now. I used to suffer from plain tension headaches in the past. Since having BP, they have become migraines. The frequency is not consistent; I can have a couple a week or go weeks without one at all. Before my BP came on, I had a headache a day for a week straight. I had told my manager at work the night before the BP appeared that I thought I should see a neurologist. It's almost funny, because I had to wind up seeing one anyway!
As far as the problems with vision, I have not experieced that. I hope you are not still having that problem.
