    Deadlift and Vision Problem?

    Ok well i started dead lifting 3 months ago when i got into powerlifting. My starting Dead lift weight was 295/300 lb so a pretty good starting weight i think , But a week later i pulled my lower back and couldn't dead lift heavy or squat heavy because of my back and i was not doing heavy for like a month and a half. A week ago i tried my 1 rep max on dead lift and got up a 350 lb dead lift barely.

    Now yesterday after my sets of dead lift (last set was 315lb so i still got stronger after being out of action and 315 didnt really feel like much) my head/vision was killing me , like everything was blurry and i keep seeing like heatwaves in my POV and it was really weird. Now the thing is i wanted to try out another 1 rep max and for some reason my repping felt easy , so i tried 365 and cleared that easy then tried 375 and that was easy to but my vision was still really bad , and it felt like the back of my eye was strained or something i ended up going to bed a 7:30 pm last night because of it. Any idea what this is ? and also why i went from 350 hard to 375 1 rep max easy in a week? (my back fully healed or something)

    Thanks in advance
    Dan

    See your doctor!!
    That being said. why did you keep lifting if you had a hard time seeing and your head hurt? Doesnt this sound dangerous to yourself and the people around you? It most likely had something to do with the strain from the effort you were putting into the lift, and is hoepfully nothing to worry about.

    I hope you figure out what is up, Good luck!

    blurry vision, runners, sparks, etc. happens all the freaking time, usually when lifting in gear though.

    its due to the spike in blood pressure you get when lifting a heavy weight.

    if you normally have high blood pressure you'll probably experience it at lighter weights too.

    Heavy deadlifting causes tremendous spikes in blood pressure. This can cause headaches in some people. A lot of people will see little sparkles called "gym fairies" after a particularly heavy set. For most people, it's normal. For others, it may be a sign of something more serious. I'm not a doctor and I don't play one on the internet, so I can't tell you what to think.
    Bravery and stupidity are often synonymous. So are cowardice and intelligence.

    like isaku said it's probly blood pressure related. check what you ate and drank before lifting.

    I always feel like I'm going to pass out right after deadlifting "heavy" for more than 3 reps.

    I remember reading that employing the Valsalva maneuver can actually cause detached retinas in some people or something.

    If your vision didn't stay messed up, I'd say it's not that.
    Gym PRs:

    Squat: 540 lbs
    Bench Press: 355 (TnG) / 352 lbs (paused)
    Deadlift: 605 lbs.
    Press: 225 lbs.

    There was actually a thread about this the other day, apparently the Valsalva maneuver can also cause cancer.

    Luckily, however, it's also well known that squats cure cancer and so equilibrium is achieved in the lifter.

    Never had this personally but as others have said your body goes through immense strain while lifting heavy.

    I mostly get it on squats, feeling like my head will pop it goes bright purple and my eyes feel like they will pop out.
    Squat - 180kg

    Bench - 107.5kg

    Deadlift - 195kg

    As others have said blood pressure spikes on heavy pulls are relatively normal. I had some eczema or something on my eyelids a few months ago and every time I pulled heavy it looked like I had black eyes the rest of the day from the area already being inflamed/thinner skin + the blood pressure spikes.
