Jittery eyes/vision then extreme fatigue?

I was watching a live basketball game with lights flashing, players running up and down the floor, Stat and Scoreboards, when my eyes started jittering (like nystagmus?) and continued for 5 or 6 minutes.  Then I was extremely fatigued; trouble sitting up, talking.  No real headache.  Fatigue continued for 2 days, lessening.

I have brain MRI showing multiple white lesions, has w/u for MS, inconclusive.  On neuro exam " with eye fatigue may have subclinical INO with rapid saccades".  My PCP thinks a seizure, is sending me for EEG.  I asked for VNG, but she thought it was a MS test and doesn't think I have MS.  No brain MRI unless the EEG doesn't show anything.

Do you think this is a vision issue?  I've been cleared of the possibility of microvascular disease; my cholesterol, BP, glucose, and homocysteine are all excellent.  Doubt TIA.

Any ideas, suggestions?

Thank you,

Kathy

We do not make diagnosis on these sites. I would stongly recommend you see a neuro ophtalmologist (find one at www.aao.org)

MRI with white lesions and INO certainly raise concerns about MS.
