My 6 yr old daughter has started experiencing blackouts, but does not have many of the symptoms other people have posted about.

She says she doesn't feel them coming, and suddently all she sees is black, no light or shadows at all. Then after 10-15 seconds, she slowly starts to see light again, and it starts out blurry and then after about 30 seconds of that, she can see normal again. It doesn't affect her hearing, body movement, or other senses. She has mild headaches, but very rarely, and don't seem to be specific to the time of her episodes.

We have a dr appt scheduled for next week, but I was wondering if anybody has experienced this before?

Thanks!

  • either high blood pressure or orthostatic hypo tension..Blacking out on a coaster doesn't have anything to do with a disorder in your eyes. Blacking out, or whiting out, graying out, or tunnel vision all pretty much the same experienceRichmond Chiropractori

  • My sister-in-law had a very similar experience as your daughter. She didn't have complete blackouts, but did experience black vision in half of her eye. She also experienced swelling of the face and joint aches. She went to several doctors and no one seemed to know what was happening. She was put on medication (not sure what kind), but that didn't seem to help either. After about a year of vision problems, they disappeared. She hasn't had problems since. I hope things go well for you and your daughter and her vision returns back to normal soon!Lyndsay, Health Advisor

Temporary loss in vision could be a signal for a serious underlying cause, so it should not be taken lightly. Just in case, you should take her to emergency or something, because if it is something serious, a delay may make things much worse. I hope everything goes well!

  • Did you know that this could be a sign of migraines just because she may not have pain with it doesn't mean she doesn't have them. I would really check into the possibility of migraines after you rule out retinal problems with a ophthalmologist. I pulled this information up for you to take a look at but please don’t assume anything by what you read still get this checked out.What Is a Silent Migraine?Migraine is a neurological disorder that generally includes headaches. But it doesn't always. Some people have "silent migraine" -- a migraine without the symptom of headache pain.To understand silent migraine, it helps to know the four distinct phases of migraines.· Prodrome. The "prodrome" phase warns that a migraine is coming. Symptoms include changes in your mental state, such as irritability or confusion, and physical signs such as thirst or diarrhea. One out of every four migraine sufferers experiences prodrome symptoms as early as 24 hours before the migraine pain attacks. · Aura. The phenomenon called aura is best known for its unusual visual symptoms. But other sensory, motor, and language disturbances can occur. About one in five migraine sufferers experiences aura. Aura is a phase that typically lasts about an hour. · Pain. Migraine pain itself is often on one side of the head. It's often a throbbing pain and may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. The pain phase can last from several to 72 hours. · Resolution. After a migraine, many people experience deep fatigue and general malaise for up to 24 hours.Not all migraines follow this pattern. There are migraines with and without aura. There are also migraines with and without pain. Even within the same person, migraines are extremely unpredictable.The Symptoms of Silent MigraineThe symptoms of silent migraine include any of the typical signs and symptoms of a migraine -- but without the pain.Physical symptoms include:· diarrhea· nausea· vomiting· food cravings· loss of appetite· thirst· increased urination· chills· fatigueEmotional and mental symptoms include:· confusion· irritability· euphoriaAura symptoms include:· wavy or jagged lines· flashing lights· dots or spots in your vision· blind spots· tunnel vision· disruptions in hearing· auditory hallucinations· distortions in smell or taste· numbness, a pins-and-needles feeling, or other unusual body sensations· difficulty remembering or saying a word· other language difficultiesAn American Migraine Study involved 30,000 people with migraines. Nine out of every 10 said they couldn't work or function normally when they had migraines. More than half said they experienced symptoms severe enough to need bed rest. Even without the pain of migraine, the other symptoms can be temporarily disturbing and can disrupt your normal day.

  • I would definately take her to your primary doctor first. There could be something else going on that has nothing to do with her eyes. Good luck

I am glad to try to assist. this , as you might imagine, is a difficult area to diagnose. that being said, however, in an otherwise healthy 6 yr old daughter the likely cause is migrainous, or at least innoucuous in nature. still, the one thing I would probably recommend given a normal eye exam, is a visit with a neurologist. if you were say 75 and had a history of high blood pressure. I may be concerned about a lack of adequate blood flow to the back of the brain ( occipital lobe ) where our vision is processed. but since your daughter is small, i would find this highly unlikely- still a trip to a neurlogist to at least address the migraines may be in order. other, equally unlikely, possible causes would include inflammatory conditions and rare blood vessel malformations - but I would bet on migraines. I hope this helps.
