So I feel as though I'm going crazy. here a little history, I'm 21 years old, a very healthy person, had a baby 3 months ago . Been feeling weird lately! I went to the doctors yesterday for lightheaded/dizziness, confusing, disorientation, eyes crossing, and trouble concentrating. Early in the month she had me get my blood drawn. I had everything check that blood could possibly diagnosis and she said my blood work came back PERFECT, not just ok.. but PERFECT! i'm not fighting any infections, blood counts perfect! She thinks whats causing everything is my eyes, and anxiety and I want other opinions. I've never felt like this before, she also thinks its my hormones from just having a baby 3 months ago. IM personally worried its a tumor, but everyones calling me crazy promising me I dont have a tumor. Doctor also thinks I'm just thinking somethings wrong because I'm a new mother and worried of something really actually being wrong.

So could it be my eyes? I've had HORRIBLE eyes for years, just got glasses a month ago, helped a lot with my dizzy/lightheadedness but not 100% I'm going to an actual Eye doctor and i'm really hoping this is all just my eyes ):

  • I'm not a doctor, so feel free to disregard any advice. I recommend taking their advice, for at least a week. Enjoy your new little one. They grow fast. I bet he/she is craving for your love and attention. Read a good book. Stay away for tv. Just take a break from all the hustle and bustle. Having a baby does bring about changes. I hope the eye doctor was any help.

  • You sound very stressed out. Why don't you take a vacation? If the symptoms still persists you can get a second opinion.

  • It may be a retinal detachment/tear. Have it looked at ASAP with full dialation by a good optometrist or retinal opthamologist.So I feel as though I'm going crazy. here a little history, I'm 21 years old, a very healthy person, had a baby 3 months ago .
