Exercise and vision question

Hi all!  

I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything strange after exercise.  Almost everyday for lunch I go to the gym and run on the treadmill and elliptical for about 45 minutes.  As soon as I walk out the door and hit the outdoors, like clockwork I get a visual disturbance.  (I guess you could call it that)  It almost seems like a i have a couple big spots in my eye that block small parts of my vision.  It goes away after about 5 minutes.  It occurs every time I work out at the gym and always in my left eye.

Never a dull moment with these strange things going on!  I am yet to be diagnosed with anything and as much as I want to ignore all the strange things going on I know I am well overdue to make an appt with a specialist.

Thanks and have a great weekend!

This is definately something you want to bring to your docs attention. I know when I exercise I have to be careful not to over due it or I am down and out for a while.

I am not sure what is going on with you but maybe you should slow down your routine to see if that helps with what is going on.

Good luck and be careful,

Exercise causes all sorts of craziness for me! My left arm gets heavy and clumsy. Sometimes it becomes numb as well. I also feel like my sock is wet on one foot. Then there is the oscular (sp) migraines afterwards or during that make lines look like they are vibrating. My MS specialist said this is incredibly common because of your body temperature while or after exercising.
