I'm a male 58...

I'm a male 58 in good health, been doing daily work outs for years and not over doing any. I was just at my work out and became dizzy and went blind for 10 minutes, the staff helped and said likely dehydraded, I sip water every 10 minutes and had a large breakfast some 2 hrs prior. Sign returned after 10 minutes - first just a few black spots then slow improvement, 1 hr later just sore with a stiff sholder, your recommendations would be welcome, never had semilar blindness spell, yet 30 yrs ago brain surgery did have 3 days of blindness.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the spots? Have you used any medication for it?

Only a few minutes then sight began to return, that was an hr ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the spots?

No just got home, no problem now.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

This did occur, after 2 minutes in a vertical tanning booth, shame on me!

Hello -

You should certainly bring this up with your doctor.

Issues with vision could be related to dehydration and having very low blood pressure (with low blood flow to the brain), but you would want to make sure this was not a result of a "TIA", or a "mini-stroke", where there could have been impaired blood flow to the brain temporarily from a blood clot.

Your doctor will want to evaluate you and perhaps get further testing of the blood vessels in the neck, as well as look at your heart rhythm, and check blood pressure, and perhaps (giveny your history of previous brain surgery), a MRI of the brain.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
