    Question Leiden Factor 5

    I have Leiden Factor 5. I was diagnosed with it 5 years ago. I have had reocurring double vision for 25 years. I have had EEGs, cat scan and 3 MRIs. None of these tests have shown any reason for the double vision. My neuroligist doesn't seem to think the double vision is caused by the Factor 5 condition. But, I do. If there is anyone out there, that has the Leiden Factor gene, or is a neuroligist, could tell me if double vision could be caused by the brain shrinkage caused by the Leiden Factor?

    I NEED HELP!!! PLEASE

    I two was just told 2 months ago that I have Leiden factor 5 and I to suffer from the double vision. Not all the time but when I do get it, it freaks me out. I actually have to lay down. I found out that I had it from getting 3 bloodf clots in my lungs. I also have another gene that is a blood clotting factor and that is lupus anticoulagant

    I have Factor V Leiden. Do you have the mutation or the deficiency? I would like to suggest two things...an appointment with a hematologist (blood disorder specialist) and for more information on Factor V go to fvleiden.org. It has been very helpful to me.

    Shandielee,
    Please Let Me Know About Your Double Vision. I Get It, Too. Does Your Doctor Think It Is A Result Of Leiden Factor V? My Neuroligist Doesn't Think It's Related To The Gene. But, I Do. Thank You So Much For Replying To My Question. Keep In Touch.
