sudden deterioration in eyesight

Hi doc, I am 47 yr w female and overweight - very. I'm experiencing water retention around ankles and lower calfs - a tingling which is slightly alleviated if I raise my legs for a while. The second problem is my eyesight is playing up - more than the usual 40something myopia. Lately I have short episodes of blurred vision and I my eyesight seems worse at certain times - I'm sure I'm not imagining this....

My life is stressful and I have constant headaches (for a year now) starting at the back of head on righthand side at neck going up in an arc over to top of head?

Please advise.
