I have PTC and papilledema, last night, I was giving a speech in college, and I got really dizzy and my voice started getting shakey. For about 3 hours last night, I noticed that my vision was going away in parts of my eyes, then coming back a few minutes later. Its hard to describe, and it kind of scared me. It was like I could not see half of what I normally see, but then it the sight would come back and be back to normal. It did that several times last night. Is that caused by PTC, or what? Also, does PTC cause you to get confused at times? I find myself getting cunfused when Im in the middle of a sentence, like last night. I made a complete fool of myself last night, during my speech. Im sure that they could not understand what I was saying. My husband said that it looked like I was about to pass out, while I was giving my speech. I have no idea what is going on! Please help! Thanks! :)
