Has anyone here had the effects shown in my question. If you close the affected eye (always the right eye in my case) you can still see the shimmering effect. I was told a while back that if you stare at a distant object then the shimmering will go away as quick as it arrived.
That didn't work today and the effect lasted for over 10 mins and made me feel really nauseous. I took a couple of paracetamol/caffiene tablets and it went away eventually. The affected eye has been twitching for a few days before todays attack. When the attacks appear i also have balance problems.
I don't know if any of the following might be attributal: Had a heavy fall on ice 4 years ago landing on my right shoulder and i am weaning myself off Fluoxetine (a drug used for my depression).
I am loathe to go to the docs as i spend so much time there anyway for other problems.
I don't like self diagnosis but the symptons seem very similar to Superior Oblique Myokymia.
Any help would be gratefully received.
