Question My painmanagement DR told me that it looks Essential Benign Blepharospasm.

Hi there I a patient that suffers from PV, (idiopathic Erythrocytosis) Polycythaemia Vera, and My Pain Management Doctor, tells me that I have Fibromyalgia,I suffer from chronic Migraines, with or without Aura, that I also have Hypertension and now a non smoker smokefree for 108 days. and tells me my eye condition is Essential Benign Blepharospasm or Focal Dystonia, is this a new condition, not related to My PV? Is there anyone that could tell me, I seen a eye specialist, he did not confirm the EBB, he Just said that the back of my eye look fine, and unbelievable healthy, as for the front, he said that my problem is related to my headaches and that he would write to my doctor and that I start immediately on the eye drops, take them 3 times a day one drop in the right eye. Is there anyone that could help me out, thanks

I believe a fully credited eye doctor, which I geuss is an opthamologist would be the one to go to on that. It sounds like something that would at least need to be accessed and then routinely followed up on.
