    Causing FM severe Vision loss?

    I have 10% vision back and the doctors can’t find a eyedisease.
    My theory is my vision loss is caused by my fibromyalgia. But can FM causing so severe vision loss?
    I mean the Fibromyalgia effects the central nervous system where vision is part of that system.

    Trust your body

    Listen to your body when you feel that something is off. Don’t ignore how you feel. Trust your gut.

    For the past few weeks I’ve been experiencing flashing lights in my right eye. I got an emergency appointment with my retina specialist today and he found an Operculated Retinal Hole. He did a laser procedure on it, along with some of my abnormal vasculature of my retina. It was so painful and I’m struggling with a lot of pain in my eye and head all around the area. It will take a few weeks to heal and hopefully seal the hole. Hopefully after the hole is sealed the flashing lights should subside. I have an appointment in two weeks to get re-scanned. I have to rest and take it easy now.

    I was going to wait it out and ignore my symptoms because if everything looked “okay” I didn’t want to waste my doctors time. Ultimately, after my mom and my neurologist persuading me to go, I made an appointment and I’m so glad I did. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and in this case, I was experiencing vision symptoms of an emergency that could and probably would’ve turned much worse had I not gone to the doctor.

    I have been having some #vision problems. I do wear bifocals but some days I can't see for looking. Does anyone else have this problem?
