Re: What was your double-vision like initially
Thanks again for the note, Nikki. That's quite a story. I'm feeling awfully dizzy this morning, though, so I'm going to keep this quick. Last night I tried to watch some TV (in the dark) with my wife and had to stop because all that would go through my head is whether or not I was seeing it doubled. I suppose it is similar to looking at the stars at night (looking at a TV screen in the dark). It definitely seemed somewhat amiss, but then, I wonder if I'd have even noticed if I was so hypersensitive to anything being wrong right now. Does your cataract give you issues like that?
And though my ophthalmologist and you both mentioned that MS doesn't present with double-vision, searching on ****** (why, oh why do I look there???) led me to some articles that seemed to say it can. I guess ON is much more common, though. Any thoughts there? I know I don't have ON (no pain, no blurriness, no dark spots). Have you ever heard of someone's first symptom being double vision that isn't ON?
And finally, I guess I keep telling myself that if I really had double vision, either from nerves or muscle issues, and not from cataracts, I'd have double vision during the day, too. But looking at this computer screen, for example, it looks normal. So I tell myself it must be my cataracts. As we agreed: INSIDIOUS! I wish I could just turn off my brain right now and stop thinking about it!
