Why Didn't My Blurred Vision Go Away After My Migraine Went Away?

Sometimes, when I have severe migraines, I have nausea and blurred vision, which I assume is related to the migraine. Yesterday, I got another migraine and had blurred vision as well. However, after the headache went away the blurred vision did not.

It's not severe blurred vision. It feels like I am wearing a pair of glasses that need cleaning. Sometimes when I'm reading, I feel like I have to concentrate to make my eyes focus so I can see what I am reading.

Is this normal with a migraine, or could this be a sign of something worse?

Answer

xxkkxx,

Neurological symptoms such as blurry vision usually resolve by the end of the Migraine attack. It isn't usual, but it is possible, for them to continue a bit longer.

That said, it's important that when something out of the usual happens with your Migraines that you contact your doctor to be sure it's not something else.

When you say chronic "headaches," do you mean Migriaines? Are you working with your doctor on prevention?

Anyone who has more than three Migraines a month needs to be taking something for prevention. There's growing evidence that Migraine is a progressive brain disease. A recent study showed that Migraines can cause brain damage, and that people with three or more Migraines a month are more susceptible to this damage. For more information, see Is Migraine a Progressive Brain Disease? and Yes, Migraines Can Cause Brain Damage.

Please call  your doctor?
