I have been having terrible vision problems for the past year. My eye symptoms include: extreme light sensitivity, intense eye pain in the back of my eye socket, blurred vision, some loss of color in my left eye, and depth perception problems. But the weird thing is, when i developed these problems i also developed; dizziness, near fainting, frantic heart beat, weak heart beat, cold hands/feet/arms/legs, tingling in my limbs, confussion, disorientation, and trouble catching my breath
i've been telling my doctors about it, but none of them agree on what they think might be causing this? my opthamologist says i have drusen, and my other doctor just keeps telling me i have anxiety attacks. i understand these people have dedicated a lot of their lives to medical science...but i KNOW i do not have anxiety, because i feel all these symptoms all day, every day for the past 13 months.
Can anyone help me, so i can ask my doctors the right questions so i can get better. i cannot work, it's hard for me to attend college because some days i can hardly stand without feeling like im going to faint. I WANT MY LIFE BACK. PLEASE HELP!
I have optic nerve drusen as well and have the other symptoms but I was in gulf war and also have suffered from the other issues before finding out about the drusen. I have one question were you or your spouse in gulf war one or two
