periods of blindness


Posted by kathy , May 11,2001,08:54   Archive
everything certainly has not been as smooth sailing this time after my injections as i told you all last time. Is or has anyone had periods of blindness after there injections? I have had this before usually before my injections and sometimes while a large pressure system builds, but they remain quite scary. 2 days ago the pain, cramping, whatever broke right thru both the ativan and celebrex and remained like that most of the day til it rained. this has happened several times this injection period to me . Anyone else?

Are you talking about your eyes shutting down as in closed or total loss of vision? I've never had my vision actually go to blindness without my eyes closing. I have had some blurred vision at times. There may be something else going on with your eyes. My father has periods of loss of vision in one or both eyes(no BEB) at times and has been evaluated for this and his is due to bits of plaque that have broken off within his eye and are floating around. When they get in a certain spot, his vision goes.
Have you asked your doctor about this?

my eyes are shutting down and i have to feel my way around my apartment.
you must have just read my mind because i was thinking of a solution to this newsletter thing. I suggested that they actually enlarge the print and they replied that it would be too expensive. BUt to actually post it on this site would be great. Are they afraid that everyone would click onto that site at the same time and it wouldn't be able to handle the traffic? If so maybe your computer sons or my geek Phil could figure out a way that site would not get clogged. what other reasons would they not want to do this for?
anyway my eyes actually close for periods of time , either while the meds are wearing off or during heavy barometric pressure. or sometimes after my shower. Other times i can wait so long that i have to remind myself to take pills or i might get stuck in an "I waited too long" predicament. very inconsistent, don't you agree?

I don't remember actually getting a definite explanation except that "it" couldn't be done or it would be cost prohibitive to put it on the bb or website.

The reply I received was that they have changed the newsletter a couple of times and they are concerned about the costs. I can understand their concerns but what good is the newsletter if we "Blephros" can't read it. I was told that my suggestion will be passed on. I don't know much about printing but wouldn't it only be a one time cost to set it up? And of course it would add a couple of more pages to the newsletter. I'm hoping they they will consider it.

either that or they could put it on a temporary site for the duration between newsletters and change the link when a new one came out. and then they could layer it to go back when you hit archives to see the previous ones.
