I started experiencing some weird symptoms on Wednesday night. I sat down to work on a post for this site and I couldn’t see very well. It reminded me of when you are out in the sun then come inside – that weird thing your eyes do that make it hard to see initially after coming in. But I wasn’t out in the sun. Then last night I couldn’t sleep. I slept maybe three hours. That’s not a weird symptom for me though. Today I was not good all day and my head was hurting extremely bad. I tried to sleep on and off throughout the day but I was only able to take short 15 – 20 minute naps.
When my husband came home around 5:30 p.m., I could tell that my blood pressure was high and I started having trouble talking. My speech sounded slurred and it was difficult for me to talk. It is after 8 p.m. here now and I notice that my vision is weird again and I am still slurring when I talk. I feel totally miserable. I’m going back to bed…
I’m sorry to hear that you’re not feeling well. I do hope that you call your doctor tomorrow or go to the ER. I don’t want to alarm you but your symptoms sound as if you need to be seen by a doctor ASAP. No, I’m not a doctor but I do care about you. Please let us know how you are feeling.
you should see a doctor. But, the vision problems sound like a migraine that i had a while back. But the slurred speech doesnt sound good, so you should go to the doctor.
The slurred speech sounds very alarming, Sandy. Even though the other symptoms could be part of a migraine with the vision (I’ve had that) and the me/cfs/fm with the sleeplessness, even though exhausted, the slurred speech is always something I remember being told about stroke symptoms. I hope you have been to the Doctor since writing this post.
Hey Sandy, hope you have seen a doc and found out what’s going on – sounds worrying for you.
High blood pressure can cause those symptoms and really needs to be controlled as soon as possible to prevent more problems. x

Thanks everyone for the concern. I am feeling a lot better now. I think maybe I just overdid it a little bit.
