    Exclamation left eye tempoary blindness???

    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?PS. i am in a flare, dont know if that anything to do with it.
    Sorry i'm not home pain! and don't leave message I am not calling u back!

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

    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.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for someone I'm not.

    Default hi

    Kathy, i understand you cause it happened to me yesterday.But i still go and i will continue to make a nuisance of myself until i get the answers i need to get me well again.So this is my advice......GET TO THE DOCTOR!!!!
    You are our friend...we need you to get help and soon.They are only human,if they give you attitude...give it back...i do.Its working for me slowly.Yesterdays rheumi only got away with it cause i had face ache....next time......he'll be sorry i had an appointment cause i aint leaving till i get answers.
    Good luck.
    love
