Today my focus is wea and slightly blurry in both eyes and I feel slightly light headed. What could the problem be?                                                                                               
Doctor :   HI
User :   Hello
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Well, not sure if you my original message. I have been suffering with eye pain and burred vision on and off for a few months.
Doctor :   Have you got your eye sight tested?
User :   Not for a while. I did the first time it happened and was told that my eye sight was ok.
User :   I also get dizzy fairly frequently.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   I would suggest you to get your eye sight checked, as they would be the cause for your present symptoms now.
User :   Ok. My left eye has become blurry most of the time. My right eye seems ok, but some days both are blurry. It is quite scary. Is it possible that it may be allergies or maybe eye strain?
User :   Or possibly an eye infection?
Doctor :   Eye infection present more with watering in the eyes and redness and not just blurring.
Doctor :   Hence the possibility of infection is unlikely.
User :   Ok. I will make an eye appointment. While we are connected I do have another question for you.
Doctor :   Please proceed.
User :   I have been suffering with chest pains and difficulty breathing for the past 5 or 6 years. I have been to the emergency room and to doctors many times but they can never find anything wrong with me. All they found was that I have an enlarged heart and left ventricular hypertrophy, but does this explain the wheezing, chest pain and rapid heartbeat etc?
Doctor :   May I know your age and gender?
User :   Yes. 28 year old male
Doctor :   Can you describe the pain?
User :   It varies at times, but most of the time it is a dull ache, normally at the center
Doctor :   Do you have nausea or vomiting associated with your symptoms?
User :   No.
Doctor :   Do you have breathing difficulties during these episodes?
User :   Yes, sometimes intensely so
Doctor :   Have you got an EKG done?
Doctor :   Do you have diabetes/hypertension?
