The most common fear that people with anxiety have is having a brain tumor. If you have a brain tumor there would be much more going on than double vision ~ my aunt died from a brain tumor.

If you want to truly know if there is a medical cause for your double vision the best thing you can do is seek the help of those in the medical profession for testing. Drs. are like all the rest of us; they can deal with anxiety, depression, health issues, family problems, and more.

There is nothing wrong with my eye. Internuclear Ophthalmoplegia is due to a miscommunication within the Central Nervous System which includes the brain. The brain is not able to send the proper messages to my eye, hence Internuclear Ophthalmoplegia. I am very fortunate as the double vision could be worse and effect both eyes, although overtime it's possible for this to get worse and it's also possible for it to effect my other eye as well. Just to be clear I do not have a brain tumor.
