i need help hopeful answer. i called docs office and havent heard back from them yet.what do i do?

yesterday i was out and about doing my usual errands and all of a sudden i had a strange pain just above but behind my right eye. i came home laid down for a few on my side for about 10 minutes and it went away. then at about 7pm i went to eat dinner,rite in the middle of dinner i literally lost over half my vision in my left eye. i left and headed home, by the time i got home i thought i was going to black out. i laid down on my right side and put pressure on my right eye and stayed that way for 20 minutes. my vision came back, but then later i kept having a burning pain on my right upper part of my stomach. i slept sitting almost up right in a recliner. any ideas?

  • I would first think blood pressure,or even a mini stroke. You're pregnant, I'd go to the ER rather than wait on the phone personally.

  • I think that you may have a tear in your retina. That sounds similar to what I just recently had with my eye. Do you see flashes like white lightening especially in the dark in that eye? It can be repaired but you should see an Opthamologist ASAP. If you are having flashes and dark spots in your eye today, you should see the Eye Dr. TODAY. Just call one and tell them your sympoms & they will take you immediately. Hope you feel better soon.

  • i was also going to mention retinal detachment. my eye dr told me that if i suspect retinal detachment to call asap because it's a LOT easier to fix if you come in asap. (he told me that because i'm so nearsighted that i'm at a much higher risk than normal sighted people) the pain in the upper right could be gall bladder problems (which i've heard are somewhat common for pregnant women). GL!

  • Do you have a bp cuff. Those are signs of possible preeclampsia. That is high bp when pregnant. You need a bp check at least. Don't let what I say worry you though. I cannot see you and it may be something else but still GET A BP CHECK
