This note was posted in January 2003 but I am responding to it because there are probably others with this problem that I think should read this.

There are medical conditions that can cause nystagmus, if you have eye problems go to your family physician or optometrist and get it checked out. If you haven't had a physical with blood work done in a while, I would recommend it. Some medical conditions can sneak up on you with strange symptoms you aren't expecting, don't overlook your bodies signs for help.
