I very small head ache ... but I have had my wisdom tooth removed recently that has taken over 3 weeks to heal .. ( and is still not better ) I think I have some nerve damage from it and that is where the head ache comes from ..


 

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for the details.

I would not attribute the nerve damage to a tooth extraction and associate headaches with it since there is no direct relationship between them however, it is possible.
On the other hand, you have progressive worsening of vision in both your eyes along with a headache and this can raise concerns about glaucoma, temporal arteritis, weakness of eye sight and even a minor stroke or an organic lesion in the brain.
An eye examination is in order here and it should be done as soon as possible since the progression in your case is rapid and in two days as you mentioned you have developed significant blurring of vision in both your eyes one by one.
This should be addressed early and the best course of action will be to see a physician in the ER or an urgent care for an eye examination and retinoscopy to rule out the serious conditions I mentioned above.
If they are not suspicious of any of the above after an examination then a thorough work up can be done on convenience.

My grandfather and his mother went blind from muscular degeneration and my mum has eye troubles too .. can this be handed down .?

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, certain eye conditions are inherited and can be handed down from generation to generation, these include in adults - macular degeneration, glaucoma, optic neuritis, cataracts, amblyopia, shortsightedness, longsigthedness etc.
If you have a family history of eye disease and macular degeneration then you should see an Ophthalmologist, but for now the current situation needs to be addressed.

Best.
