I'm sorry I don't. I've had the same issue once in a great while. I always assumed it was due to my migraines. Some are worse than others, so thought maybe symptoms differ sometimes.
I sure hope someone comes and helps you. Just wanted you to know your not alone on this. I understand how you feel and the pain.

cheryl v, sweetie, you need to get to an opthamologist pronto... i haven't experienced your symptoms, but i have episcleritis, inflammation of the white part of the eyes.. my eyes look red and bloodshot all the time..
i had been treating with prednisone eye drops, but it wasn't improving.. at my last appointment with the opthamalogist, i told him that i wanted to discontinue the drops.. he said ok since my condition is primarily cosmetic..looks bad but not particularly dangerous.. but he told me that if i started having eye pain or blurred vision then we wouldn't have a choice.. we would have to treat..
so i think you need to take these symptoms seriously and get to an eye doctor. and let us know what happens... good luck.. i'll be pulling for you..
I get a blood taste in my mouth, but it's always associated with having a nosebleed, not with headache or with blurred vision. I don't know what's happening to you, but I wouldn't mess around, you need to see a Dr. pronto. It could be something simple and relatively harmless, but you shouldn't take a chance, especially when it comes to your vision. The only time I had those symptoms together was when I sustained a concussion in a car wreck a few years back. I'm assuming this just came on, and you haven't fallen and hit you head or anything like that. Hope you get this figured out, and get some relief.

Sandra, please call your doctor or go to the ER. Major headache, blurred vision... could be nothing but could be something significant - like a small stroke. Please take care and let us know what your doctor tells you -
Many gentle hugs -

SandraC, Please go see your doctor. In my opinion, blurred vision and a blood taste are nothing to fool around with. Please let us know how you are doing , when you can.

I finally went to the Dr about this problem. I had an MRI done and a EEG Friday and the test are back . My Neurontin dosage went to four at night and two in the morning and two at lunch. My Dr said the MRI showed some brain lessions which i don't know what this means. I started getting tunnel vision of course the blood taste in the mouth and the headache. Yesterday I Had the taste in the mouth i was watching TV and woke up on the floor. I got home this morning from the hospital. I had a Seizure. Drs says its my lupus affecting my nervous system. Never saw this coming .They also want to do more MRI to see if there are anymore lessions after the seizure. Anyone have any advice. Does this make sense to anyone cause im still confused
Hope everyone is well
