Hi Thanks for using HCM.

1. This may be due to migraine or any eye problem (Glaucoma or cataract with refractory problem). So the management is based on the diagnosis.

2. You need to consult your Ophthalmologist for examination once and for your management.

Hope this answered your query.

Wish you good health

I have a scotoma, oval area of gray, which affects my distance vision (blocks somewhat) my vision. When I have an eye exam I have to turn my head as the gray area is in front of my vision. I had a scleral buckle and gas bubble for a retinal detachment in 2013. What is a scotoma? Is there any hope for treatment to remove the scotoma?

I am a healthy 39 year old male, free of any health conditions. For about the last year now I have been getting scintillating scotoms in my vision every 2 or 3 weeks. Lasts about an hour, C shape..etc. I usually take some aspirin but rarely have any pain associated with it. I usually get them from computer monitors or sometimes bright flashes of light. Is there any good preventive for these?

Hiya I have been vomiting blood for the last few months definately not ulcer as I have had several OGD s, blood tests, xrays and scans everything else is working fine im in alot of pain and because I m allergic to alot of pain killers I get given morphine when I go to hospital. As the docs can t find anything wrong with me I think thy think im a addict hence the reason I really dont want to go to hospital again! I have been curled up on my sofa now for four days unable to move im barely eating and all I can keep down is water. I have lost 4 and a half lbs in 4 days just don t know what to do. Is billiary cirrohis (apolagies for spelling!) a possibility my aunt had it before she died? I have been vomiting just blood several times a day for thelast 2 months. I have a pain in the middle of my chest sharp pains when I breathe and general tightness when I move. The upper abdominal pain that I have is excrusiating I find it hard to walk from one room to another to go to the loo I feel constantly cold and shivery even when Im piled high with blankets. When I stand I have temporary blindness which has started getting worse to the point where every time i sit up or move even slowly my head goes dizzy and my eyes black out for up to 20 seconds.
