User avatar Your symptoms sound somewhat concerning. Unfortunately, without being able to examine you, I cannot get very specific.

I'd recommend you be evaluated by your doctor.

Keep us updated.

i went to the doctor twice and they did some neuro examination, and said i was fine twice, but i know im not.

any idea????
 Dr. Chan Lowe - Sun Dec 17, 2006 3:53 pm

User avatar I would advise you to consider seeing a neurologist if these symptoms are not resolving. There are many possiblities including atypical migraine headaches, seizures, inflammation of the optic nerves or other areas of the brain (though this is pretty unlikely given what you describe.)

Some things such as seizures and migraines are known to be occasionally triggered by watching computer monitors.

Beyond this, I am not able to get more detailed without examining you. If you are concerned I would suggest that you share your concerns with your doctor. Then you can either receive the reassurance that all is well, or get an appropriate treatment plan set up.

Hope this helps.

ok thanks a lot

sorry for double post,

so you mean all of that is pretty unlikely?
 Dr. Chan Lowe - Sun Dec 17, 2006 6:02 pm

User avatar I would say that these are uncommon problems. But uncommon problems do happen. So it's probably a good idea to be evaluated by your doctor and possibly a neurologist.

Hope this helps. Keep us updated.
