Question about eyes -
« on: April 20, 2014, 02:50:30 PM »
Because of my dizziness and ear symptoms I'm concerned about MS or a brain tumour. I've had this problem with my eyes a lot, when I look far away or have to stare at a spot prolonged my eyes start to go out of focus and I have to force myself to refocus them by looking away or blinking. Could this be a sign of something serious or just eye strain or time to upgrade my glasses prescription? My last prescription upgrade was in May last year

If that's a sign of a brain tumor, I'm screwed, because I've had that happen my whole life.  I'm pretty severely nearsighted; I assume it's related.

Okay good to know, I've had it happen my whole life too just some days are worse than others. I'm also near sighted so there ya go.

Also if anyone is lurking this thread - if I have a middle ear infection will it spread to my brain and kill me? Because now that's what I'm worried about.

I worry about infection spread, too. But I think (now this is just my guess, as I'm no doctor or anything) that there are certain bacteria, fungi etc. that are only able to thrive in certain parts of the body. For example Chlamydia can spread further up the pelvic area and to the liver, but I don't think it can enter the spinal cord.

Sorry to bring it onto STI's unprovoked and so suddenly.

i have these exact same symptoms and the fear of MS/brain tumor so you're not alone. the eye refocusing symptom is especially annoying and anxiety-inducing.
