Month of headaches, now blurry vision?

Health Professional

Full Question:

Hi there, I've been suffering headaches the last month or so (not bad, just really annoying!) mostly in my left temple and at the back of my head just above my neck. The vision in my left eye is now going all blurry and I still have a slight headache. I've never had my eyes checked, do you think this may be the case? Thanks :)   Kayla.

Full Answer:

Dear Kayla;

Unexplained headaches should always be investigated - always. To be on the safe side, start by calling your doctor. Then, yes, you should have your eyes checked. Everyone should have their eyes checked periodically.

The reason to start with your doctor is to be sure your symptoms aren't being caused by anything serious that might need immediate treatment. Please don't wait. Call your doctor's office now.

Good luck,
John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
