Question: Right about the middle of my cycle, I get this dizziness in my eyes. It’s not like vertigo, more like my eyes can’t keep up with my brain. My eye muscles get sore as well and I can feel mild pain when I look side to side. Sometimes i also get a headache. Symptoms go away after a few days.

Brief Answer:
Probably hormonal related!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

This sounds more of ovulation-related symptoms. They are related to hormonal changes and in no way actually, represent a disease condition. I will recommend ibuprofen for soreness and increased fluid intake. All will be okay. If the however become debilitating and you are not in any way trying to get pregnant, we may use pills to keep them away.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you want pills for control.

I am currently taking birth control, and I never had these symptoms before. They showed up a few months after I started the birth control. Could the BC perhaps be the problem?
