    Blurry Vision Comes and Goes Daily

    Hello, first post here and I'm a little bit desperate. My vision starts out crystal clear in the morning and then randomly blurs throughout the day. It comes and goes and doesn't seem linked to eating, stress, etc, but when it blurs it gets so blurry that I can't read a computer. The blurring is worse in my right eye and lasts anywhere from 10 minutes to 4-5 hours.

    The blurring first started in November when I had a migraine that was so severe I went to the on base ER (in the military). I had a couple migraines as a kid but nothing for about 7 years prior to the November migraine (haven't had any since November). It started with floaters in my vision and intense pain (way over a 10/10 if that's possible, it was honestly indescribable) and progressed to being unable to walk, confusion, complete blindness, and an inability to speak. I could say garbled words and was aware enough to get really frustrated that I couldn't say what I was thinking. then I just couldn't say anything anymore even though I was thinking clearly to myself.

    They did a CAT, MRI, and subsequent MRIs with Dye traces, all of which they say came back clear. No stroke, MS lesions, etc.

    At this point the military docs are saying they don't know what it is. I have no other symptoms other than the blurry vision and fatigue. Is there a way to make this stop? It really impacts my ability to work. It's not something I want to take up my Chain of Command; I just want it to go away. Thanks!
