Re: Double vision (diplopia) on lateral gazes: meds or pulled muscle?

Your eyes are nothing to laugh at- get a good check up!
Well I did get a thorough check-up, including a look at my eye nerve using their machine and all... That's how I learned it was in the "extreme lateral gaze" - I didn't know the phrasing before. She said she didn't see anything wrong... Meanwhile I've seen GPs, some telling me about self-mutilation while telling me you can't damage your eyes stretching them the way I do even when it hurts a LOT.

Nobody's arguing it is anxiety. Anxiety is what makes me hurt myself. The question would rather be whether I could be pulling a muscle (it hurts especially when I look far on both sides) or something...
