    Diplopia - 4th Nerve Palsy Thyroid

    About 9 months ago I began to experience double-vision --vertical with the second image (under the real image) displayed at an angle. Vision is clear if I close one eye at a time. If I raise my head a few inches I can see more clearly. Current diagnosis is 4th nerve palsy of unknown cause.

    After several eye doctor visits and a clear MRI, no cause has been discovered.
    Has anyone experienced this problem? It may be thyroid related. I have had no trauma to my head. I do take 75 mg of Armour thyroid daily.
    All blood tests came back normal, including for Myasthenia Gravis.

    Has anyone experienced this problem? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Dear OvertheRainbow,

    I am sorry that you have that problem.
    I have been on Armour and other thyroid replacement for many years now and would not suspect that it is causing your vision issue.

    Have you been examined by an Ophthalmologist?
    To me that would be the first thing to get done. Maybe it is a retina problem.

    Let me know what you find out.
    Hugs,

    Yes, I have met with a neuro-ophthalmologist and right now they are suggesting "wait and see" it might just resolve on its own. Just wanted to ask people in the community if they had any personal experiences that might shed some light on this frustrating situation. Thanks for the quick response
