I am a little bit concerned about my vision. My last eye screen test diagnosed me as having background retinopathy. I am also B12 deficient and on injections every 3 months. My diabetes is type MODY but I am treated as a Type 2 gere in the UK. Although prescribed metformin I have never taken it as I am worried about the side effects. Initially it gave me terrible stomache ache. My GP took me off it after I confessed I was no longer taking it and he said I didnt need it anyway. But the my diabetic nurse said after my last 3 monthly test that my Diabetes had jumped significantly ans she wanted to have tbe 3 month test again. Have not seen her yet about tbe results. But the other day I bent over to pick something off the floor and I had what can only be described as a massive flow of spakling floaters dropping down my eyes for about 5 seconds. It made me feel nauseous and blurred my vision. I thought a first it was a migrain coming on but it didnt develop. Since then I am seeing more than usual dark floaters and some darkness in the peripheral vision. Is this perhaps one of the effects of retinopathy? I have terrible eyesight anyway with myopia and wear strong glasses but my close up vision is fine. I can read and type this message on my mobile phone.
