I found that the cause of my symptoms were the statins that I had been on for about 5 years. One day I had skipped taking them accidently and I felt better, so I tried two days and then three days and I was considerably better. The physical therapist at the rehab that I had been going for Visual Rehab Therapy saw the marked difference.I spoke to my internist and he told me to stop taking them all together.
I haven't fully recovered after stopping them, but I am at about 85% - 90% better. I had been suffering with this for about 7 months. I had a bunch of tests with no real answer. But generally, I would suggest Visual Rehabilitation Therapy with a physical therapist who specializes in it. It was helping before my discovery.
