I Went To Eye Doctor & Was Told The Nerves Behind My Eyes Look Funny. Has Fibro Affected Your Vision?

I Went To Eye Doctor & Was Told The Nerves Behind My Eyes Look Funny. Has Fibro Affected Your Vision?

I have blurry,double vision which prompted me to go to eye doctor.

During flares it is normal for some with Fibro to have what sufferers would call blindness as they can't see even with glasses or contacts but in reality it is cloudy like looking through a frosted shower curtain or fog. The muscles and nerves that go to the eyes tighten and cause this. Until they release (seconds, minutes, hours or days) it will stay that way. Trigger Point Injections (with Lidocaine) or for those who can tolerate it Dry Needling into the base of the skull, sides of neck, and for some into the upper shoulders alleviate this problem.

Yes my vision is getting worse, dry eyes as well. And no meds. So either fibro or age for me. 🤷‍♀️
