I've struggled with double vision since last March and was being treated for "eye migraine". No medication worked, so my pcp referred me to the neurologist 2 weeks ago who knew immediately that it wasn't migraine. She referred me to the eye doctor. I saw an ophthalmologist today who couldn't find anything wrong with my eyes that would cause double vision. However, she did diagnose me with nystagmus and a head tremor. I have problems with tremor in my hands and neck, but this head tremor was a surprise. I've been referred to a neuro ophthalmologist to see if they can fix my double vision and check the nystagmus.
I don't have MS, but I know that folks with MS have these symptoms.
I need advice on how to keep living with these optic issues and tremors. Images are double and objects shake. I thought that today the eye doctor would fix me. I'm disappointed and frustrated.
I'm tired of relying on other people to drive me around, and they are, too. And I'm embarrassed by my tremors...when people ask about my tremor/shaking I just tell them that I had too much coffee. People seem to believe me, even though I don't drink coffee, so if they are perceptive they'll figure out that I'm lying.l
