Doctors are much better at telling me what I don't have. I don't have MS, or a brain tumor, or Meniere's, or BPPV!!! Other theories that have been tossed about are Atypical Migraine and Cerabella Ataxia.

Have you ever heard of sixth nerve palsy? Someone I know had a sudden onset of this at the beginning of last year. It affected her vision like you describe, I think they were able to diagnose by MRI, she had to do eye exercises and her condition eventually improved. However, I'm sure you've had MRI and eye tests - you must be sooo sick of Dr's.

I love animals, my beloved 15 year old cat died this year, it was very hard. A strange story though, she hated other cats but for some reason would tolerate this stray that started appearing in our lives. Turns out we ended up adopting him (by having him de-sexed) the same week she died. I had started feeding and encouraging him six months earlier, but he was so scared I didn't even get to pat him for the first four months. Now he is the biggest kissiest sook, we think he was a gift as he helped us with her loss.
Hello DizzieBlonde,
Yes, I know exactly what you mean--I'm feeling pretty good but I'm falling apart And Drs. have told me also what I don't have. I've not heard of Sixth Nerve Palsy--I'll check that one out. I truly think that it will be me that figures this vision jumpiness out and not the Drs. I know that they can only do what they are trained for and the medical profession is such a money thing that they don't take time from making money to research something that it unusual or that doesn't show up on one of their tests. And yes, I am sooooooo sick of Drs.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your cat but it sounds like to me that she knew that you would need another cat to love. And what does "sook" mean--it's a really cute word. Oh, also this week, I had to give my smallest Yorkie "Sassy" mouth to snout resuscitation. I almost lost her--I've never had to do that before and I know that I did some things wrong but Praise God I kept her alive until I could get her food out that was caught in her throat. And Praise God she's fine. I call her "my little shadow" she's always right by my side. She's in here now as I'm typing.
I pray that you have a good day and maybe one of these days the Drs. will figure us out. precious49 (Donna)
