Thank you for your time. I will give you a brief history. 37/f. Meds. amiodarone, coumadin, cardizem, midodrine, advair, celexa, forteo, pacemaker. I have a-fib, past T.I.A, a P.FO. and diplopia which started about 1 yr. ago after a severe headache. I can't have an MRI, ct scan looked ok other than a lg. sinus cyst on the same side as the diplopia. My vision is not double when one eye is closed, but it is vertically double mostly on convergence.
I have 2 questions. One involves the double vision.Does it sound nuero. or opthamological?
My other issue involves a recent surgery. Last week after general anesthesia I developed severe tremors. At first they thought it was shivering, but it was very large and rhythmic. I have had dystonic reactions in the past from meds. The next morning the tremors improved unless I was relaxed. It has been 10 days since, and my tremors are okay except if I wake up in the night or first thing in the morning. I am due to have more surgery in 2 weeks and I am worried this will happen again. Do you know what type of tremor could be worse during relaxed and potentially as a result of anesthesia? I am worried about the amiodarone as a possibility. I have noticed odd movement problems since being on that med. It is written that the general anesthesia consisted of desflurane, diprivan, succinylcholine, nimbex, fentanyl, anzemet and toradol. Is it possible that if this happens again that it could be permanent? I realize I loaded you up with a lot of info. but I am trying to make an educated decision. Thank you so much for your time.
