I need help, the doctor I saw really did nothing for me, my eyes are getting worst, double vision in each of my eyes and now I can not see three dimensional at all. The "doctors" are not telling me anything, you know that three dimensional test with the big fly ,,,I can not see it ! I have always been able to see it, not now. He said it's the way the light hits my eye and bends, what ???? Light is everywhere and all my life now all of a sudden in the last 4 months not it "bends" what ever ! Why can't doctors today just say, " I don't know" what is wrong with not "knowing" everything, nothing, we are all human but they are messing with my mind,,,these things are really happening to me and I feel like I need a mental hospital because well am I going crazy? Is this their way of not addressing concerns because they are afraid of law suits. Can some one please help me with this ? I have constant headaches, they couldn't answer that question either. I am not the kind of person that says, what is wrong with me now. I drive 50,000 miles a year, a professional and I need my eyes and I need answers. Next time I get a flare up and get facial spasms and tics again and can't speak clearly I will take myself to the emergency room and ask them for a qualified nuerologist and pray they don't lock me up and throw away the____key. open for any suggestions, please, and thanks. All youngs guys take care.

Hi Auggie,


Wow, those eye symptoms sound really rough, and I’m sorry you are having such a hard time finding answers. I am not sure what kind of doctor you saw, but have you tried seeing an ophthalmologist for your eyes? If you have already done this, are you able to go for a second opinion? Have the doctors (neurologists?) you’ve seen given you anything to try on your headaches? Do you think your eye problems are connected to your headaches?


Headaches can be complex to diagnose and treat, but there are medications out there that can be effective. I am not sure where you live, but there are also “headache clinics” which specialize in this area of medicine. One thing I know many on this board have found helpful, is to create a list of both your top questions and most bothersome symptoms. Hand a copy of the list to the doctor at your next appointment, and make sure the doc answers these questions/concerns to your satisfaction. If you don’t understand the answer to a question, ask for clarification, or even see if the doc will write a brief explanation or give you some literature on the condition…i.e. the light bending thing you described above.


I hope you find some answers and relief soon! Hang in there, okay?

Thanks Sunny, I've tried everything it seems other than just waiting untill the next time and go to the hospital. The last time I was afraid they would think I was looney because I could not control my face with really fast spasms and then tics where my head and neck kept doing the same thing over and over for three days in a row following the last loss of vision thing.The two times before that envoled my arms and extreme hot pain and hypersensitivity and they thought fybromyasia back then. And to be honest I didnt have a clue what was going on other than it seemed every 1 1/2 to 2 years I experience strange episodes. Basicly here's the deal, I feel like I am loosing credibility and to others they may think I am making it up or making too much of it and I try to forget it and then like I said a time or two before something weird happens, above and beyond ordinary, like, hey here I am, take notice. I am just frustrated, it's the whole not knowing thing but alot of you guys have it so much worst and here I am complaining, I'm sorry. Some one, I can't remember, had a post on " the worst symptom " other than pain is the unkowing, what will happen next, when will it happen and where will it happen. God Bless you all, you are special souls, each of you. You are strong and never giving up,,,how many people can accually say that,,,you guys are special.
