Re: blurred vision
I called my primary doc's office and they said for me to go to ER. They did a CAT Scan which was normal, then told me to go to my eye doc on Monday. I didn't go because I woke Sunday to vision being pretty much normal. I know what you mean by "ceiling fan" effect!!! That is a very good discription of what mine is, only it has been going on since 9-17. A couple of years ago I woke to blurry vision in right eye but it was gone the next day so I didn't think much of it.
I have been to 3 eye doctors, my primary, 2 neuros, and 2 therapists, and 1 shrink and not one of them have prescibed any meds for the vision problems. They all say to see what the next doctor says. My MRI's have been normal except for a cyst in left sinus area and of course the fusion of C5-C6. C6-C7 has a protruding disc with arthritis directly across so that spinal canal is narrowed.
I see my primary on the 27th and am going to ask her to order spinal tap, evoked potentials. My daughter sent me a paper on a EEG & SLEEP STUDY that says it helps in the diagnosis of several disorders such as:
SEIZURES (they say I have partial complex seizures)
EPILEPSY, HEADACHE, STROKE, ADHD, PARKINSONS, MS, AND OTHERS.
I am going to ask the doc about thyroid test and to see if she knows of a study being done around here.
Thanks to all who have responded, I am so glad I have this board to come to!!!!
