Any ideas of what could cause eye-triggered headache, nausea and brain fog? I have a full write up of my condition that I have been providing to doctors. I have made it public on Google Docs here: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=10nCd6ovQfYiZNBtfIuE0nNrUmGnG9D3Tr6WHcDHi7l8 The only diagnoses I have received is exophoria, a type of strabismus. Treating my exophoria does reduce my symptoms, but does not eliminate them -- and, my ailment is starting to become more severe than the treatment of exophoria can handle. Other doctors are doubtful that my decompensated exophoria is the cause for all my symptoms and believe instead that another underlying condition is exasperating my exophoria. The link I provided above goes into detail the symptoms I have been suffering. To summarize, I have severe headaches, motion sickness, brain fog, fatigue and even occasional electric shocks. This came on abruptly on January 21st, 2012, and has persisted every single day since then. The symptoms appear to be triggered by the usage of my eyes, and treatments directed at my eyes have helped to reduce the severity of my symptoms. However, I am getting worse, and no one has any idea how to help me. I am very debilitated at this time, unable to work even part-time, and I am, well, quite miserable. The only doctors I have "on my side" right now are a nurse practitioner and my psychiatrist. Other specialists have not been helpful. Two ophthalmologists have told me they cannot help me at all, and another ophthalmologist does not have time to continue seeing me because I am not a priority. One neurologist has told me "to stop using the computer", and I am having trouble securing appointments with other neurologists. I am looking for direction that my nurse practitioner or psychiatrist can use to help find me a proper diagnosis and/or treatment for my problem. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, so even pointing out specific doctors who could help me would be tremendously helpful.

Lorazepram helps to minimize and occasionally eliminate nausea. Can use odancetron if needed for nausea. Closing my eyes almost always works to stop pain. But lately I have been waking with pain.
