nystagmus

Does anyone have a nystagmus caused by chiari? I had mine before surgery and now 1 year and 4 months after my surgery I still have it.  It causes extreme dizziness, nausea and vision problems.  How do others deal with this condition?

  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum.

  Many with chiari do indeed have this and I know a few members do have it....

If u had surgery and still have this symptom, what did ur Dr say is the reason?....did they rule out syringomyelia? in the cervical , thoracic and lumbar spine?...how about tethered cord, or a disk issue?

   DO u have ne other symptoms?Did u have ne symptoms that went away post op?

i have it with certain movements. some mornings getting out of bed or just rolling over will cause me to have nystagmus for a few minutes. you should probably see an eye doctor and explain your situation. i went to the eye doctor today and talked about it and he was very interested and is helping me as best he can.

I had a nystagmus for a long time.  I couldn't read because moving my eyes back and forth caused strain, headache, dizziness, and nausea.  I went to occupational therapy for a few months and they had me doing vision exercises to strengthen the muscles.  It made a HUGE difference.  I still have to do the exercises every now and then when I start feeling eye strain, but otherwise I'm almost normal vision-wise.
