For a few years now, I’ve had issues with my eyes and ears, like double vision and slight sensitivity to some sounds. They were very manageable then, but over the past 3-4 months these issues have gotten much worse and more have started appearing. Now, I have worsening double vision, light sensitivity (sunlight abd flourescents a big no), color vision problems, extreme sound sensitivity (shuffling cards can be too loud), constant ringing in my ears, balance issues, and problems concentrating and thinking when I have sensory overloads.
I’ve only been to a doctor once so far to start getting this checked out (it’s so hard to get ahold of them) and it was only for my ears and balance. I have an appointment next week for my eyes.
My doctors don’t know what to make of my symptoms so far, and I was wondering if anyone here could give me some insight? No one has considered it being a neurological issue yet, though I think it very well could be considering as of right now I don’t seem to have any kinds of infections.
Also I could use some help with how to explain a sensory overload to my doctor? I did the best i could (I said that everything becomes too loud and bright, sounds mix together, I get horrible headaches, and I have trouble thinking and reacting, like my brain has turned to molasses) and the best thing she could think of was that it might be anxiety if the ENT finds nothing. I never feel anxious when the overloads occur though, or even exhibit symptoms of anxiety.
