Myasthenia Gravis

Diplopia

12/22/2008

Question:

I have had diplopia for 7 weeks now. 5 mri`s, cat scan, stroke work up and blood test for MG. Nothing shows up abnormal. Tinsolon test this Monday. Any suggestions on what`s wrong. My Neurologist is puzzled. I am going crazy with this.

Answer:

The key is to work with your neurologist as there are quite a few causes of double vision. It is good news that after having a number of tests, no serious condition has been discovered. By following your case over time and evaluating new symptoms, the correct diagnosis is usually made. And, of course, it is not uncommon that nothing turns up, symptoms improve and you end up doing fine.
