    You're dizzy because your head thinks you were unbalanced. Sit down and drink some water.

    I don't feel dizzy. I can close my eyes and it feels nice, and I can walk around just fine. It actually only affects me when I'm looking at something near.

    Nystagmus is the term that refers to involuntary back-and-forth motion of the eyes. You should talk to a doctor about it.

    I can do that on command and hold it for as long as I want, but hate when it happens involuntarily. Just sit down and close your eyes for a bit, usually helps me icon_smile.gif

    It's just nerves. Take a big breath and say the name of the guy you are in love with when you exhale. Over and over until it goes away.

    Lay off the MDMA. ;)

    But seriously, if this is brought on only by exertion of some sort, it's well worth seeing a doctor about. Hope it's not serious.

    Considering your blasphemous posts over on the Spirituality forum, it's obviously God doing some serious smitin' on your sorry, Hell-bound ass. Or eyeballs, as the case may be. Repent!

    Like MikeOnMain said, it's nystagmus and it can be caused by a number of things. Commonly, it's middle or inner ear problems, mostly not serious, though it can be debilitating while it's happening (have you had a recent viral infection?). See your primary car doc, or better yet, an ENT specialist.

    How did you know I had one? Mine has lots of speeds/patterns. But the coating on the wire split so I can't use it anymore for fear of e-stim.


    The shaking isn't voluntary, though I think I could do that as a kid.


    No recreational drugs!


    No viral infections.. that I know of.. other than The Backin Up song. Unless ENT stands for Easily Navigates Tomyhouse, that just won't be happening. I could put in on my list but it would be years before it actually happened. I'll ask my doc next time tho.

    Can you replicate it (the sensation) through specific movements of your head?

    no, not at all. It's super rapid and slight. I can still read, but it kind of strains the eyes.

    you said it was when you sit down in your original post? Is it constant? Do you experience any sensation of disorientation, nausea, vertigo, dizziness?

    It's not the sitting that causes it (I don't think). It comes as I'm seated after having been out walking, usually with groceries on my back. None of those other symptoms. Just the annoyance of the shakey eyes, and eyestrain if I try to read. I usually have to lay down, get up and walk around or look at things in the distance for a while to make it go away.

    Strange... :-p I'm gonna defer to your primary care doctor lol. Lots of things can happen with the eyes that cause "movements/nystagmus" and it's hard to tell what it is without seeing it and checking for other symptoms.

    Ideopathic only in that you don't know the cause of it right now.

    Now if your eyes were moving up and down rapidly that might be a precursor to having a stroke

    And if they moving around in circles, well that only means that you're probably lying there on the bed with a fat one stuffed either in your mouth or your hiney icon_lol.gif

    Is there any chance of it progressing into the latter, Doctor? What are my chances?
