Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'll be happy to help you with your question.
As you know, SLE can cause all sorts of neurological episodes that come and go. How long did the episode last?
the episode lasted about 30 seconds
Not really enough time to check things out.....that's a good thing and that's a bad thing. Have you been having any other symptoms? When you say your vision went cross, did you see two images? If so, how were they related to each other (up/down, angled/ slightly overlaped etc)?
However, just because you have a history of SLE is not a reason to blame every symptom you have on it. I
I saw two images and I have been having shaking hand and weak muscles in legs and arms.
It is possible with your feling of having something in your eye that you could have dry eyes and/or blepharitis.....but now that you mention the issues with your hand and weak muscles we have to turn our attention back to CNS inflammation from a flair up of your lupus
what is blepharitis
I think it would be best for you to get in touch with the physician treating your lupus and get in to see her in the morning. Should you go to the ER now? It is impossible for me to tell via chat -- you know your body and how your SLE "feels" on a daily basis......I would think seeing your MD in the morning would be OK.
I don't think this episode of transient diplopia, given your history, is isolated to ocular structures alone. What I'm thinking is that going go see an ophthalmologist would not be my first choice for you. Does this make sense?
thank you i will call the doctor thanks for your help.
