Has anyone else experienced chronic vertical double vision with their fibrolmyalgia? I've had fibromyalgia for 14 years and double vision since 2006 and none of my small-town doctors know why. My eyes are extremely puffed up under my eyebrows too. Is this another fibromyalgia symptom or is it something else?
hello i dont get double vision just the blured vition and the mist though i have been gettin really puffy eyes myself also very bruised purple and yellow at times. i to was advised to get a anti-body thyroid count, i did tell my gp but he put it down to the anti deps, but it happend still when i came of the meds. i was also advised on here it maybe a reaction, what i first thought? still none the wiser why as my doctors a ***. hope you get some answers good luck
Thankyou for your answers, I never thought of being checked for MS but I think I've been checked for lyme and allergy has been ruled out too. I'm wondering about the thyroid answer too, my TSH was 2 last fall (within range) but my test was done right after I ate lunch so I'm wondering if that might have skewed the test and made it less accurate? I've never had any other thyroid hormone tests so I think that's what I'll ask my doctor for next. This double vision is really scaring me!
I would think a visit to a neurologist would be in order. It is not normal to have double vision. Does your doctor know about this? I had a full neuro work-up to rule out MS as FMS and MS have similar symptoms. Not saying you have MS but all other diseases should be ruled out before a diagnosis of FMS is made.
