- Seeing 'spots' while running – should I be worried?
I just returned from a run of 4kms, and when I was about 2/3s of the way into it, I started getting ‘spots’ of white – like light spots – in my vision. No other symptoms (other than feeling more tired than normal before I began).
I have never had this happen before, and they eventually disappeared (after a few minutes). Finally, I don’t know if it’s relevant, but I was wearing my contacts, which I normally don’t do while running.
Any thoughts, other than cat aids?Posted 4 years agovickypeaMember
Sounds a bit like what I get when I’m running low on blood sugar when out on my bike- I start feeling a little bit dizzy and then I get coloured spots in front of my eyes. That’s my signal to eat something.Posted 4 years ago
Could be that, or migraine aura, which I also get sometimes.philjuniorMember
I used to get that stretching off after a hard ride sometimes. These days my physiological make up must have changed as I’m sure I would chunder before I got to that point.
If it’s worrying you, go and see your GP about it. They won’t usually send you for a catalogue of tests unless you need it or they’re bored/fancy whoever they’d have to talk over the test results with.Posted 4 years ago
