Customer Question
Hello, I have had ongoing vision...
Hello,
I have had ongoing vision problems since 2011. I was constantly misdiagnosed when my onset of problems occurred (sudden blurred vision in left eye with the feeling it was popping out, sore throat, awful vertigo, brain fog, left facial weakness and blood in ears and coming out nose) but was finally told after a clear MRI (years on) that I probably had Ramsey Hunt Syndrome or a small stroke. I was A healthy active person with no other health issues before this occurred.
Several years on now I feel better, but still suffer from some dizziness and awful eye floaters (in both eyes) and the feeling that something is in my left eye or that it could actually come out of the socket. My left eye looks much different than my right now. The blurriness has pretty much gone away the last few years but it took a long time to get better. The symptoms of temporal artritis sound similar to a lot of my symptoms, but I was only 35 years old (now 41) when this happened. Is there a relation between Ramsey Hunt/shingles and temporal artritis and the vision issues I'm talking about? .im trying to explore other options that might provide me with some relief from my ongoing symptoms. Thank you.
