It may be possible that your astigmatism is not very severe, so that you are unconsciously compensating for it, with eyestrain and headache as a result. Sounds like something worth following up on, since you may need just a pair of glasses rather than something invasive or pharmaceutical. Here's an article on it: Also, "blurry" is a very subjective evaluation for people to make. Some people think they see just fine when they have 20/80 vision and really should be wearing glasses all the time. Other people with a very slight eyeglass prescription think they see horrible and are surprised when the eye doctor doesn't prescribe glasses for them.

Hello. This could be pregnancy related yes. It does sound like your having pregnancy symptoms, however blurry vision isn't a pregnancy symptom. See your doctor for a blood test. Hi- Just adding--Vision problems can be a sign of a couple things and some of them can occur during pregnancy like high blood pressure. High blood pressure can cause severe headaches and vision problems if it gets high enough. I had blood pressure problems late in my first pregnancy and started having severe headaches that lasted all day. They felt similar to a stress or tension headache. My doctor told me other symptoms that I needed to watch for and vision problems (like blurry vision or seeing spots) was one of them. Hope this helps.

What is the treatment for severe headaches?

asprin It depends on what is causing the headaches (I'm focusing on the "severe" part). If it's stress, relaxation techniques should help, maybe some muscle relaxants which you need to get from your doctor. If it's a migrane, you may need something a little more powerful and for that you'll also need to see a doctor.

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism is blurred vision caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. Astigmatism is when the cornea of the eye is shaped like a rugby ball rather than being spherical. It causes the eye to have two focal points rather than one and can lead to strain and headaches if uncorrected. Astigmatism is the 'Cylinder' value in a prescription. Around 70% of people who wear spectacles have astigmatism. It can also be corrected with toric contact lenses and laser eye surgery. People with severe astigmatism may experience double vision if it not corrected. Astigmatism can indeed worsen with time, as the eye grows and changes. There is nothing you can do to prevent this change and it will only require a change to the prescription in your glasses in order to correct your vision. It is also possible for the astigmatism to go away. It's when the eyeball is not perfectly round.

Can miscarriages cause severe headaches or migraines?

During and after miscarriages, your body goes through a lot of hormonal changes. That can set off migraines. A miscarriage is also cause for acute stress, emotionally and physically, and this can trigger both tension headaches or migraines. If during a miscarriage your blood pressure shoots extremely high or low, this can cause a headache or trigger a migraine. Blood loss caused by the miscarriage may cause severe headaches as well, due to anemia and, once again, low blood pressure. It is important to bring this to the attention of your doctor. If you are pregnant and begin having severe headaches suddenly, contact your doctor immediately to check if the baby is fine, or that you aren't beginning to experience preeclampsia. If you had a miscarriage and begin having these symptoms, contact your doctor. There are things he or she can do for you, including: a blood transfusion if necessary, steroids to help stop the headaches and reduce inflammation, migraine medication, pain medication, blood pressure medication, the recommendation of extra iron, prescribing birth control pills in the short term.
