I feel like I have a black cloud hanging over my head. The other night I was sitting on the couch, FBing on my phone, when I lost the vision in my left eye for about 7-8 min. I couldn't see anything but half of my phone screen. It freaked me out and I went to bed because I thought might have just strained my eyes. Well I've been racking my brain all week thinking of reasons it could have happened. Without any reassurance, I called my doc today. They asked me to come right in. I get there and they basically said they dont think it is pregnancy related but are going to do a 24 urine and more bloodwork to rule out pre-eclampsia anyway. They also referred me to a neurologist next week for an MRI on my brain because they want to rule out a mini stroke. If it's neither of those, I have to get my eyes rechecked, even though my last eye exam was right before this pregnancy. She mentioned it could be Occipital Migraines which can happen in pregnancy and they have the same symptoms as a mini stroke. She said it's very concerning that I would lose my vision and it needs to be checked asap because it doesn't happen without a reason. And if it happens again, I'm supposed to go straight to the hospital. So, I'm on weekly appointments for the next month, with ultrasounds every other week. PLUS, she told me my antibodies got worse but it's not to the level where I would need to have the blood transfusion, so I have to be rechecked for that as well. Needless to say I've cried for the last 2 hours and I'm completely drained at this point. Any P&PTs you ladies have would be great..
