What causes blurred vision after a head fall? - Online Doctor Chats
Vision is clearing
sorry to hear about your fall
Have you put some ice on it?
Not needed. LOL
OK. How may I help you?
more worried about fainting after coughing
started coughing, next thing I was lying on floor with blurred vision
banged head on desk on way down but not badly so not worried about that
first time ever happened to me
What's causing your cough? Do you have a cold?
blurred vision in right eye is clearing now
Ok. And how are you treating that?
Just staying warm inside
have you had a fever?
fainting was scary though as never happened before. When I realised I was on floor tried to get up and couldn't for a few seconds and felt very very light headed
OK. Well. It sounds like bronchitis
Now as far as the coughing fit. Whenever you cough.. you are increasing the pressure in your lung and decreasing the output from the heart
So, that can lead many people to pass out from a cough fit
its actually a defensive mechanism
The body wants to make sure that blood continues flowing to the brain
So nothing to worry about then
The fainting itself is not a worry
But i would really be happy if you got that cough looked at by your primary doctor
OK, thanks. I was worried as it has never happened before. I am usually very robust
Well, the cold and the chronic cough may be taking it's toll. Drink plenty of warm fluids if you can
OK, anything else before I go.
If that cough lasts more than another week, it's probably an infection and you need antibiotics
Anything else I can help you with?
