He shouldnt be banned over that. He is allowed to have his opinion just as much as you are.

How is it not attention seeking. Who in their right mind would think they are going blind and instead of going to the doctor they go on ATS to ask advice from a bunch of people who think everything wrong with them is caused by some government agency.

Obviously, there is a degree of attention seeking going on whether he is being honest or not.

Then report me and if the moderators see fit to ban me then they will ban me.

As you can see my first post told him to seek medical help.

I dug around and found that things didn't add up. If you don't like it then to bad. The evidence is there if you stop ignoring it.

Again, report me and let the moderators do their jobs and see if any "punishment" is warranted.

Are you at work? You said you went to the men's room to check your eye. This would cause me to think you are at work.

What a nice job you must have. You have made this thread and posted on two others. Must be nice.

I don't buy it that you need a diagnosis from ATS members.

I am not sayings you are trying to get flags but it seems suspicious to me.

Long story short, you should get medical attention.

If that's impossible, use disinfectant around but not in your eyes, use hand sanitizer almost constantly while the condition persists, disinfect surfaces you touch frequently, and do not rub your eyes (use of pain meds, an anti-inflamatory, or sleeping pills may be helpful with that- people touch their faces A LOT without even thinking about it). An eye moisturizer may also help.

But then again you may end up spending 30 or 40 bucks at the drug store and then still end up needing medical attention, so if cost is a primary concern know that DIY is a crapshoot.

I would think its a sty like someone else has mentioned. I usually get those dots really bad if I drank to much coffee and didn't eat. Sometimes the dots blur me out so bad that I have to sit down and rub my eyes. I hope you feel better MA!

Maybe the OP would be kind enough to straighten things out here? I mean it is your thread MA. I have read (and humbly dis-agreed with) alot of MA's threads and posts. He appears to be a stand up guy/girl, and I for one believe him. So here it is MA, either you're having eye problems, or you're seeking attention, either way I hope you get well.

That was unnecessary and unhelpful jd. It's not that far fetched for someone to sit at their computer at work and waste some of their time doing stuff other than work even when they are ill or injured.

But for the sake of argument, let's just suppose for a sec that we're dealing with a case of Munchausen Syndrome (no offense to the OP, I'm not saying that's the reality of the situation). In that case, dealing with it online would be saving a lot of people a lot of time and money. Heck, maybe I wish that some people would come to ATS and make up stories about illnesses- maybe it would help us bring down the cost of medical care.

I did not want to get into any nastyness, but from the OP I would say get medical help to rule out a migraine. There are good cocktails for that sort of thing through your Dr office or even the Er if you have ins.

I get those sometimes and it is really scary. Rule out tumor. Rule out everything, but it is probably a migraine without the headache.

Get Gatoraid and water 50\50 and drink a crudload. Take it easy and stay out of the heat.

We are here for you.

If my theory is true then this thread is unnecessary.

If my posts were in violation of any rules then they would have been removed by now. Maybe they will after this post?

If you feel as if you are going blind would you blog about it or would you seek medical advice?

You want to talk about costs? He is in Canada, universal health care, he is paying for it even if he doesn't use it.

You can tell me my post is uncalled for if you want. I still say this deserves the HOAX tag or removed completely. I have showed that his story doesn't add up and now atleast 2 others want an explanation.

Define: Hypocrite

On topic: I've had styes before and my vision wasn't overly affected. I guess it might depend where it's located.

I wear contact lenses since the early 80s I do get small bumps in my eyes but is usually linked to allergies, specially at this time of the year.

Unusually if you scrub you eye trying to fix the problem a gel type of film will start building up and they eye will swell impairing your sight.

Best thing of action is to stop touching your eye and go to the doctor.

It unusually goes away within a day if is not anything major.

Without a picture we can not tell how bad you are.

You sound to have something similar to what my son gets. When he gets them he simply goes to the doc and gets some eye drops and they are gone with in a few days. They can effect your vision as they irritate your eye's a lot. They might also want to do an allergy test as most time's an allergen is the cause of the little white bumps.
So best advice already given is go see a doc and get some eye drops and for gawds sake wash your hands a whole lot more so it doesn't spread to the other eye.

Well those 3 bumps are still there
nothing like the image that was posted though

the blurriness is gone

However I have a really uncomfortable feeling now

I started posting on ATS after my eyesight came back, well even during too. I guess I was a little too stoic about it.

I don't see how vision problems would equate to attention-seeking.

But right now I feel kinda horrible, i feel like vomiting and got a bad headache.
but the vision issue gone, also my stomach feels weird.

Today one of our partners brought us some free muffins, I had a chocolate one with coffee.
I can say that the problems happened after that...... I'm fairly sure.

I can't go to a doctor because my medicare card is expired and i'm still waiting for my new one.
it's gonna cost me an arm and a leg to go to a doctor without one.
especially with walk-ins.

I don't have a family doctor, never had one actually as none of them have room.

no im married.

It's end of quarter too, and my job is somewhat related to sales.
Or at least some salespeople require my technical assitance
I can't leave

Also I left early yesterday to get my father from the hospital.

Leaving is not really an option right now, gotta stay at work.

JD, you said you did a little more digging after I made this thread.
Why would you waste your time doing that?
Sorry bro, but sounds like a complete waste of time to me.

But thanks for the initial advice nonetheless.

Could be an allergic reaction to the muffins, even if its not the chocolate or coffee maybe something else in them. If you do eventually get to a Dr get them to run an allergy test aswell.

edit to add: You can easily get rashes and hives from allergies, so it could be that. And now its worked through your system its getting better. Definately get an allergy check if you can.

Illness can cause changes in vision especially if the onset is sudden. You can go to the hospital and they can bill you if it gets worse. Hospitals can not turn you away if you can't pay. I also heard that with a fever you can have visual disturbances. Maybe you should go home and rest.

Sounds like a sty cluster to me! Go to the eye doctor! Do you have any of the following symptoms?

The common symptoms of styes are-
* Redness on the eyes
* slight pain and tenderness on the eyes
* Swelling of a certain area of eyes
* Tearing of the eye
* Discomfort when blinking
* Sensitivity to light
* Eye may feel gritty
* Burning in the eye
* Mucous discharge in the eye

Sounds like a migraine or a cluster headache.

If it is I feel for you. I used to get them when I was in my twenties and nothing helped them other than shots of narcotics.
