Question: My left eye started twitching about a week and a half ago...now my right eye I'm seeing black spots flashes of light all of a sudden...my left foot tingles. I'm 53 years old female and started menopause last March 2017 with hot flashes, dizziness...the dizziness still comes and goes.

Brief Answer:
Possible retinal pathology

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am

I can certainly understand your concern

I have worked through your attached query in detail

As per your symptoms, the possibility of retinal pathology is very high.

The dizziness can be secondary to impaired retinal functioning.

It's extremely important to get a fundus eye examination at the earliest to determine further course of action.

This test is exclusively done by an Ophthalmologist.

Black spots and flashes of light are significant indicators of retinal pathology.

The tingling sensation of the foot could be secondary to either vitamin B12 deficiency or a compression disc Prolapse.

Hence it's advisable to evaluate accordingly.

Thank you
