paresthesia, and miosis palinopsia / VS / trails


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

My neurological symptoms started in this order:

2010 -> Paresthesia total of one hand (for 4 days)

2011 -> Miosis (a pupil smaller than the other)

2011-2012 -> palinopsia / VS / trails

The doctor I have suspected multiple sclerosis but MRI was ok. Nobody knowswhat I (like many of us I think).

Someone else had paresthesia and / or Miosis? Or other neurological accident?

Since your MRI is clear, if it is MS, then it is mild at this time. They need to test your spinal fluid at the time of further deterioration to be sure about MS.

In addition to the questions above,

Is your palinopsia negative afterimages, positive afterimages, or both?

Is your evening/night vision less than before?

Are there events that you know of that may be connected to the progression of symptoms? (anxiety, drugs, environmental)

What type environments are you around (rural, farms, city, factories, new construction)?

Since you have posted on a HPPD forum, do you have other HPPD symptoms?

I have unequal pupils at times and this responds well to Gabapentin (a mild anti-seizure) - this symptom involves parasympathetic nervous system irregularities. You may have a dopamine 'shortage' which is easy to test by response to medication. Dopamine problems also involve parasympathetic nervious system problems. But without more info, it is imposible to say - bring it up with your doctor.

Thank you for your message.
I showed your post to my neuro-ophthalmologist and is ok with your idea. She knows the subject she has three patients with palinopsia (after LSD but that is not my case). She also work in research.
  I have positive and negative After image.
The positive that are bad for me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va4KhD3WemQ.
  they are very strong at night. I do not drive at night.
At the beginning of Palinopsia (3 years) I: Moved into town, I had a new job, a new boyfriend, took xanax momentarily. lot of new things at that time. I do not know what could cause this.
Another symptom is a hypochondriac, post traumatic stress (of children), low ESR, tinitus, sometimes strange concentration problem.
And you? What are your other symptoms?
My neuro-ophthalmologist prescribed me Tegretol what do you think?
Thank you again for all your advice.
 I m very sorry for my bad english i speek french ;) (It is google traduction ;))

I take gabapentin infrequently. My pupils were very big all the time. It reduced them. Now they are normal and as a result my ghosting has been slightly reduced. Gabapen is a wonderful drug. Makes me feel a lot better on those not so good days.
