I had some weird junk again! I do have macular degeneration in both eyes, and they dont know why! Well, lastnight while I was watching cartoons with my youngest my left eye totally went out! Freaked me out bigtime! My hubby was on nights, and I called him, and he said"well, just see what it does!" yeah right see! haha! Anyways, I just turned tv off and lights off, and made one of my older kids take my youngest to sleep with her. Needless to say I can see okay today! It was scarey though! any1 ever do that b4?:unsure:PS. i am in a flare, dont know if that anything to do with it.

You need to let your doctor know about that. That happened to me but I was having TIA's (mini strokes)

Yes tell your doctor.I had tis allot after christmas and recently.It got better after i stopped a few meds Tramadol,Lyrica,Amitriptaline. I went to the doctors,bearing in mind,mine arnt that trust worthy,he was'nt bothered n said its migrane.Even though i was also numb for a few weeks on my left side.
You get it checked out and soon.

I had that happen to me at age 19. It was only with one eye. Looking back, now that I'm diagnosed with Lupus and a clotting factor (Lupus Anticoagulant Antibody), they think it was a TIA, like Anna was talking about. I had no pain and it went away within a few hours. I went straight to an eye doctor who sent me to an eye surgeon and they couldn't tell me anything. I know this doesn't help but I know where you're coming from. I would definitely call your doctor ASAP if you haven't already.
