I had a hard time catching my breath yesterday, and experienced blurred vision today, I just couldn't seem to focus. Later this evening the colors in my left eye were "off" and blurry. I have seen my doctor about pain in the abdomen and was in the emergency room for false labor. They said is was XXXXXXXX hicks but my doctor said XXXXXXXX hicks are not painful. I am supost to see him in 2 weeks. Can these symptoms wait? what could be the issue?
