involuntary eye movement
my husband does an involuntary eye movement while watching tv or paying attention to someone speaking.  he has no idea that he is doing it.  He has been worked up by Neurology, labs all normal head ct normal, EEG abnormal.  Trailed Kepra got up to 500mg twice a day still had eye movements stop meds because made him groggy.  Neurologist uncertain exactly if it is a seizure because no other symptom.  Just this constant invol. eye movement while watching tv and the abnormal eeg. Any thought would be great, we hate to try different meds if it's not really a siezure.

Hi.

These involuntary eye movements are also called nystagmus.

When did the symptom start? Is it getting better, worse, or staying the same? Are there side-to-side eye movements or up-and-down eye movements? Are there any other symptoms present?

The nystagmus could be physiologic or pathologic, depending on the presentation. Nystagmus is rarely the main clinical sign, and many patients with pathologic nystagmus present with a symptom complex that varies with the underlying disease.  Thus it is important to know whether any other signs or symptoms are present.
