hey true brit , i should have explained this a bit better , i initially went to the ER for my eyes , but after i gave the doc my medical history i was then Diagnosed with Acid Refulx , it seemed the doc shifted away from my eye condition and was more focused on my Acid reflux ....?

basically the Doc was not concerned with my eye situation

Wait...

I am confused. I thought you were having trouble with your eyes, the colours, the blackout effect, and so on? Acid reflux, as I mentioned, is a symptom of something, it is not an illness all by its lonesome, but that does nothing to help you with your eye problem, and I would bet cash money (if I ever had any) that your eye problems have nothing to do with what your guts are up to.

If you are having both problems, then fair enough, but your eyes still need dealing with! This is your SIGHT we are talking about, not a problem with the hands free kit on your mobile phone!

Same here, I guess we're just getting older. For me the best thing I do is always process of elimination, and if there is anything new or different in your life when yOu don't know what's going on until you see the Dr. It's always very frustrating when we don't have a diagnosis but don't self Diagnose yOurself and if yOu feel the diagnosis may be incorrect get a second opinion. Btw, most people shOuld get an annual physical and Eye exam.

I would follow up with a general practitioner, but sometimes 1 thing - often a thing we don't even think is important - will cause something else that to us, seems unrelated. Because of that, I have a tendency to think maybe that ER doctor has seen something like this before, hence the quick judgement on it.

But I would see a general practitioner in his office, and just see what he says and/or thinks. The ER doctor might be right, or your general physician might disagree. Either way... it's good to follow up!

I do hope you get to feeling better soon!

My educated guess....since I work in ophthalmology....would be a kind of ocular migraine.....My UNEDUCATED guess...because I have a seizure disorder.....is a kind of "seizure"....like a mini seizure, if you will....but...that's just a guess

My father was an ER doc (and I've visited the ER so many times with these dang seizures), and I can tell you that ER's deal with emergencies......and what you describe doesn't sound emergent......

I went to the ER once in my mid 20's and I just KNEW I was gonna die.....turned out to be gas.......a few years later I found out I had diverticulitis.....because I had been to that very same ER a coupe of times before with stomach pains....I think they just started to blow me off......the ol GOMER (Get Out of My ER).....

good luck and I would go see an ophthalmologist just for peace of mind

It's understandable to be frightened, suddenly loosing sight, even for a short time, has a tendency to make you feel way more than a little off balance.

The only thing I have to compare it to was the once I passed out. I started loosing my sight slowly, and knew that was it for me, that I would hit the floor. It was more frightening to loose my sight than it was to pass out!

But that had a specific and known cause, blood loss. With you, it must be doubly frightening to not have a known cause, AND have it be a recurring problem. Don't worry about not being "manly" enough. Men get scared and have every right to. Don't let anyone take that from you.

But do follow up on it. Just in case the ER doc was wrong. They are not gods, just men doing their personal best.

I am guessing it's an Ocular Migraine. I have heard people can have only the vision issues and no actual migraine like pain. Definitely go to an eye doctor to check it out. I've had vision loss in my panic attacks, but it was always clear that they were panic attacks while it was happening.

You mentioned "colors" during one of your last episodes. Perhaps that is something that I've experienced as recently as last week and happens every once in awhile for no apparent reason I can determine. First, my symptoms: My vision remains the same, but around the edges are multicolored, irregular lines. From the internet I find that this are commonly called "zigzags" and that perfectly describes my condition. Evidently, that condition is usually associated with people that suffer migraines. I don't and never have had migraines.

In the past ten years or so, I have a "spell" of that happening every few months, driving, watching TV, moving around the house, etc. I feel no other physical condition. Some are more intense and longer lasting than others. I've learned to just ignore them and go about my business. It is probably a brain condition of some sort. A lot of people here and elsewhere will probably agree with that assessment.

I think if it was me I'd want to go for a Lyme disease test.

The US test is more comprehensive to the one used in Canada and leads to much more frequent positive results.

Migraines and tunnel vision are a symptom of Lyme disease.

I'd be scared too , I had a few episodes of weird vision problems , turned out It was just eye strain as I was
an Inspector of small parts at a plastics factory.

The main thing is to go to an eye doctor , ASAP!!!!
At least rule out the very serious possibilities.

Good luck and don't put it off !!

Also , if your reflux is that bad that you have trouble swallowing , please get it under control , that is one
condition that can get very serious if left untreated...avoid smoking , chocolate , caffeine , obviously spicy foods.
Hope you get better soon.

I'm sorry you're experiencing those attacks and that you were pushed out of the ER, that's awful.

It's unfortunate that if you're not bleeding profusely, having a heart attack or violently ill the ER will get you in an out as fast possible and as cheaply as possible.

I'd make an appointment with my primary doctor for a second opinion. They should be able to spend more time with you and order the proper tests or refer you to a doctor that can figure it out.

Hope everything works out for you

Are you diabetic or ore diabetic...high blood sugar wil do that too...you get slight loss of vision and then rainbow circles almost like a calidascope in you're vision. Doesn't last long..but scary....the other issue that I know of is a problem with your eyes. The optic area /detaching retina could do that too. My suggestion to you is go a doctor and get a second option...and go toan eye doctor too. DONT ignore vision problems.

I would get a second and third doctors opinion or idea, independent of the first doctors opinion. This doesnt sound like acid reflux to me, My wife has acid reflux and in no way is that her problem. To me this sounds more like a problem with your blood pressure, But im no doctor, so dont take my advice, just get anotehr doctors opinion. And dont be to hard on yourself, many people have problems just like this, and live perfectly normal lives with an adjustment in their diets, and exercise. Good lucka nd keep us posted please

ER`s are only good for diagnosing and treating obvious life threatening conditions, they absolutely suck at diagnosing more subtle and non life threatening conditions.
go see an opthamologist.
panic attack and acid reflux are the ERs go to diagnosis when they can`t physically see any obvious problems.

Sounds similar to the visual effects I get when I get a full blown panic attack. The best way I have thought of to describe it is tunnel vision and the cable going out in my head. I got my cat scanned, I have a brain and it's human. Bloodwork all came up normal.

Acid reflux? My mom has that permanently and constantly due to canada hospital messing up on removing appendix, and having to get a bunch of intestines removed. Acid reflux is like heartburn on steroids.

I understand your frustration. I had a medical problem for 6 years, took about 7 trips to the doctor and 4 years before he scheduled an appointment with a specialist.

Having worked in a hospital for 6 years and my personal experiences, I honestly believe 90% of doctors are quaks and could care less about giving accurate diagnosis. They just want you out of the office as quickly as possible.
