Seems to be only at night when i have gone to bed and closed my eyes for a few minutes that what i see when i open my eyes is 'framed' in a circle like the area of a plate. It is as if i see a camera shutter in progressive stages of opening. The more the shutter opens the more I see. The room is usually nearly dark and it goes away quickly if I keep my eyes open. However, if I open and close them several times in quick repetition, it will repeat each time. So far, it has never failed to go away. As I use a computer many hours of each day, I have to wonder if it is related.
Probably myopic since birth, but, only discovered when I couldn't keep up in first grade. I was in high school before I was properly fit with glasses. My mother cried when she realized that I had lived that long and hadn't even seen the individual leaves on trees unless I was VERY close to them. I am 67 years old now. I have had high blood pressure since I was 40 years old which is hard to control and some minor cardiac problems. My families have arthritis running rampant through them and I certainly have my share of it. Several doctors have pointed to the fact that I have a high threshold for pain which must be the contributing factor to how hard it is for any cardiologist to get a grip on my blood pressure. It is somewhat like riding a roller coaster. High -- low --- all over the place. It is the the stated opinion of my cardiologist that I have arthritic pain that exists long before I feel it. His approach has been to prescribe small doses of a pain killer which I take every day when I take my other meds. Guess what? It does seem that that has made a marked positive effect. The blood pressure is not what I would like it to be but, at least, we do manage now to keep it mostly under 150.
One other thing I need to mention, is that I have taken Serrapeptase and Nattokinase 3x daily for one month 4 months ago. About 2 weeks after I started taking it, the mild angina which I have experience almost daily for years has become almost non-existent. I have used nitroglycerin patches for years to control it. Now, I haven't used even one in the last 3 months.
