Last night I suddenly had double vision and felt very dizzy. It happened just after I lay down in bed to go to sleep. I didn't last very long. Today I've felt fine. I had just eaten some watermelon. Could there have been something wrong with the watermelon? Should I go to the ER now even though I'm fine?

Hello,
I was waiting for your reply.
I noticed you did not see the info request & went offline.
I am sending the answer so that you can see it when you come on line.
If you have any query after reading it, please ask.
There can be a few possibilities for the double vision.
Those may come from cornea, lens or from muscles that move the eye.
In addition certain brain / nerve conditions like TIA or stroke, bleed, migraine may cause it.
It is unlikely to be related to watermelon.
If you are feeling fine since the episode, you can have an examination by doctor in the morning.
You may need CT/ MRI examination, if doctor feels so after an examination..
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
