Over the past 3 years, i have suddenly gone blind 4 times. It starts off with a feeling of light-headedness, then i see bright spots and darkness creeping in the sides and then i go blind for a few minutes. The first time this happened my eyes were apperently rolling in my head and the 3erd time this happened i fainted. I have discovered that eating (normally something sweet) seems to stop this. When i went to the nurse after my lastest episode my blood-pressure was low (which is normal for me ) and gloucose level was normal. She passed it off as dehydration, but that does not seem to fit. This is causing me great concern. Does anyone know what is happening to me??

  • You may have just stood up too fast(perhaps after taking a bath/shower or even ejaculating), especially if you have low blood pressure.Check out http://anabolicminds.com/forum/male-anti-aging/53205-light-headed-upon.html, a couple posts down there's some good information.I've had it happen to myself after a shower a couple of times, fainted standing up for at least 30 seconds once even.
