Ugh/ update

My left eye is blurry and smaller then my right eye, I have a headache and stiff neck too. It hurts to move my neck.

I am just venting because today we are supposed to go to my families to celebrate Christmas. I don't know if I am going to feel good enough to go down there. At the same time if I don't go down there I don't know when we will get down there again.

Update: They did tests and everything and they determined I have bacterial meningitis. I have been moved to the icu and started me on iv antibiotics and some other things. Thank you everyone.

Uneven pupil dilation could mean a neurological issue. Especially if it is new. The stiff neck could mean meningitis, especially with the headache but it is the pupils and blurry vision that worries me the most.

I agree. It can be signs of a stroke even.

Hopefully it's just a migraine.

I get tension headaches caused by stiff neck/shoulders, that lead to an optical migraine (causing blurry vision, or eye auras.)

Hopefully, it's just an optical migraine and she slept wrong on her neck or something and nothing serious!

Take some medication for the headache and stiff neck and maybe the blurriness will go away to. If your not feeling well after that then go down there for a little while to at least see them and celebrate Christmas.
