seeing stars/spots

so ive been seeing spots or stars out of the corner of my eye..
its not like constant either..
but ive had high blood pressure so im on bed rest..
and they told me to watch for swelling and vision changes
but i dont know if im supposed to go in cuz im not just seeing stars like constantly right in front of me.. its just out of the corner of eye..

so i guess my question is do i go in?

  • If they told you to go in if there are any changes then go in. Just becuase it is on the side & not in the front does not mean anything. It is still a change.

  • yes you should go in or at least call and let them know and see if they want you to come in. It probably means your high blood pressure is getting higher. I would at least call.

  • I'm glad your going in. While heat can't raise your blood pressure being dehydrated can, so if it's hot where you are and you arn't drinking enough water you nee to drink more. Lay on your left side too while your waiting. It will help lower your bp.
