I'm not 100% sure if it is nystagmus but my eyes feel like they are constantly shaking. It's very hard to focus on something because it looks like everything is moving all of the time. When it started it only happenend when i looked to the left but now it happens which ever direction i look in and my husband has told me he can actually see my eyes shaking from side to side. I'm dizzy all the time because of it and i very often walk into things and fall over things. I've also had one of the worst head aches i've ever had for the last few days because of it and i feel nauseas all of the time too. Does this sound like nystagmus and does anyone have any advice on how to cope with it better as i have to wait until monday now to see my doctor.

Hey Kat,
That sounds awful!  Your eye doctor will be able to see that movement. 
Baclofen and or gabapentin are both suppose to help with nystagmus.  Good luck!  I hope the eye doctor can help you mange this.
