This is my first post but wanted to see if anyone could provide some insight on what I am experiencing...Im a 29 year old in pretty good health, work out 3-4 times a week and could not tell you the last time I ate fast food!
A long story short, ever since December 2016 I have not been feeling well (about 5 months right now). It all started when I returned from a week long hunting trip. Sitting in the airport heading home my left inner bicep felt like I did a massive workout. The next few days my pointer and thumb were numb/tingly. Went to the doc, and he reccomended taking some anti inflamtory which i did; took care of the numbness and chocked it up to a pinched nerve from a busy last day of the hunt.
About 3 days later I fell into a crazy fog and had trouble concentrating on tasks and even driving. That symptom along with the eye concerns never went away. Over the next few months I combated tight forarms, tight calves, headaches, earaches, constant slight dizziness/sinus pressure feeling, upper back and shoulder/neck pains as well as "vision" problems.
I've been tested twice for lymes with the first one coming back posistive for the ELISA but negative for the western blot (only 2 bands 45 and i think 32?) and the second one did not test positive on the ELISA at all so a western blot was never performed. Also, I had an MRI done on my brain about 3 months after the onset of the symptoms, no lesions or concerns for MS at this time.
The headfuzz and "fog" can seemingly be controlled if i get enough sleep (in bed by 930pm and up for work about 530am) however the eye concerns are not yeilding any improvement. My primairy gripe is i've seen an increase in floaters and most disturbingly these vertical clearish lines that follow my vision's focal point. However, once i focus on something its relatively perfect and I can still read things at a distance without much of a challenge. It also feels like at times i have gunk in my eye, or it becomes easily watery. I have to blink and wipe them before it clears up. Peripherals seem good as I can see things nearly 160*+ left and right.
This concern is most noticeable under florescent lights which is what floods my workplace. Supermarkets, and stores are less noticeable and in the outside natural light I barely notice the floaters or vertical lines. I really have to focus and move my eyes left to right very fast to pick up on the disturbances.
I went to the eye doc and after the exam they offered up a very, very mild prescription with a DVA of 20/15 and an NVA of 20/20. my sphere was -0.25, cylinders were -0.25 and axis was 135 and 45. Not really sure what all of that means, but they said it was mild!
Im really wondering what is going on and if anyone can reccomend anything to get looked at.
Thank you all!
