Please help me solve this mystery

I am colorbind. Red-Green colorblind to be exact. I am also near sighted if that makes any difference. Also, my eyes sting and start to water frequently. The problem is...both of my parents are not colorblind, and I am a girl so they both have to be carriers.

I know that I wasn't born color blind, because I do remember noticing a change in my vision. Unfortunately, I was too young to really recall the reason. I do remember falling and hitting my head, but lately I have been researching and concussions don't cause color blindness.

Also, I've noticed that my ability to see colors comes and goes. Some days are worse than others, and it has nothing to do with lighting. There are some days where I can just barely see the difference between red and green, and others where I can't even see any other colors besides blue.

Please help, I just want answers. And if there are any ways that I can fix this, or even just improve a little, PLEASE tell me. I would kill to see the beauty of red roses....
