I too have had this, as well as temporary loss of vision in the corners of my eyes, EXTREME sensativity to bright lights - especially at night when driving - the feeling of pressure behind the eyes, having burning sensation in my eyes, and having "tired" eyes.
You are VERY lucky to have found your doc! Are you originally from that area or are you a "transplant" to that area?
My diagnosis took 7 years (from when the very first symptoms started). But, I also have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism (though it often goes hand-in-hand with CFIDS). Treating the hypothyroidism improved some of my symptoms considerably. BE SURE you have your thyroid tested - and be SURE the results (for the TSH) are within the range of 0.3 to 3.0; in fact, even numbers above 1.5 are suspect. The thyroid board has LOTS of information if you need it.
