I've been having High Blood pressure problems lately ( it

Resolved Question:

I've been having High Blood pressure problems lately ( it went up to 182/115. and had to go to emergency room for that because I didn't feel good that day) and they put me on medication now.
I went to the Gym to work out today and I felt dizzy during thd dance class so I stopped couple of times. When I was coming home, I felt so weird with my eyes. I can't really explain but it felt like blurry or I saw white tingling vision all around my eyes. I could see middle but around it, it was blurry and whitish stars were all over. I feel better now but it scared me enough. Did I work out too much or something wrong with my eyes?
My right eye's been blurry sometimes and I thought it was from me going thru menopause. I'm 47.

Those kinds of symptoms can be due to too high a blood pressure as well as too low of one. You might experience this, if while on high blood pressure, your pressure gets too low and you get up too quickly.

Your right eye being blurry sometimes usually is not due to menopause. There may be a change in the need for glasses or something else.
