    I woke up this morning and put on my glasses to realize that my vision was totally blurry. I rubbed my eyes and realized that it's my left eye. The vision has improved within one hour, but it's still pretty blurry. If I blink, it get very blurry and then some vision comes back again. My left eye, in general, needs a stonger prescription than my right eye. But, I can clearly tell that it's more blurry this morning. I am feeling VERY agitated this morning. I feel liek I'm falling apart. First I post about my horrible headaches (which by the way hastn' occured, just my normal dull headache after a stressful day), and then I posted about my rapid heart rate, which also hasn't happened again, so far. Now, I wake up to find my left eye all blurry. What's going on here!!!! I'm feeling so stressed out now because of all of this crud!!!! :( I am a young 26 year old, who is pretty active (work out at the gym), eat lots of fruits and veggies (vegan) along with fortified cereal and soy milk, and eggs (so partial vegan). I am generally happy. What's going on?!

    Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone else had blurry vision that went away. My husband told me not to worry that it will just go away. I tried doing agoogle search, but it's kinda hard to read and I'm just so flustered that I couldn't find the right answer to my quietsion right away.

    My eye might twitch due to really stressful times (but you can't see it, I just feel it) but not blurry vision... you should call a free nurse line in your area. Our local hospital has one and I've called it to feel better or know what to do if something was bothering me. I recommend it for peace of mind so you can relax if it's "nothing" to be worried about.

    Did you sleep with makeup on or anything different near your eye?

    Peachy,

    It is amazing what stress can do. Four years ago, I experienced a very traumatic event having to do with my then-10 year old son. It was probably the most challenging experience I have ever had to endure (and, trust me, I've had plenty). One month later.....

    I awoke with severe double vision. It lasted for 3 weeks and finally subsided. I saw multiple specialists with no answer.

    Then, a few weeks later, I experience rapid heartbeat combined with a numb finger.

    Then, a few weeks later, a numb leg (almost unable to walk on it).

    This went on for two years, multiple strange symptoms occurring a few months apart. I was finally given a preliminary diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. The reason why I am telling you this is because once I got my stress levels under control, all symptoms disappeared. I am not taking any medication for the MS and the disease has left me entirely. I do feel strongly, however, that if something majorly stressful were to happen again, the MS would come back in full force. It feels like it is back there, lurking, but I have just finally put my health first. In addition, as soon as I feel my stress levels climbing, a few past symptoms seem to return (my leg goes weak, my vision gets blurry, etc.). My point is that we have to work harder to keep our stress under control.

    We women do not always take the time to care for ourselves. We are always worried about everyone else. I was putting myself last. Also, when we are under a lot of stress, a disease can attack us because our body is using all of its defenses to fight off the stress......not other issues/diseases. Teaching is definitely a stressful and demanding career.

    I would definitely see a doctor asap and then try to determine if there are things you can do to better take care of yourself. Your symptoms sound a bit similar to some I experienced. Whether you are diagnosed with something or not, taking care of yourself will be crucial to how you feel each day.

    Do you have a migraine? My daughter gets blurry vision with hers. Go see a doctor, you had a couple health cares. Maybe a physical?

    I'd recommend a full eye exam. Headache and blurry/double vision were the symptoms that lead to discovering my sister's brain tumor! (She was an otherwise healthy 23 year old.) An eye doctor can see if there's something pressing on the optical nerve.
    Even if it ends up being nothing serious, it's always a good thing to get your eyes checked if anything in the vision begins to change.
    ** Side note - 7 years later, my sister is tumor free and doing well! (and now has perfect vision - got rid of the glasses she'd worn for 15 years)

    I agree with Peggy it could be a migraine involving the optic nerve.....

    But Peachyness you need to see (no pun intended) a Doctor ASAP

    That happened to me last year. I went to the doctor and he said that my eye was basically exhausted. He gave me medicine and it helped. YOu also may have scratched your eye, which can cause blurry vision.
