These : These are very difficult to diagnose and your symptoms could also be due to other neurologic causes such as complicated migraines. If symptoms occur affecting both sides of the body then your physician should consider obtaining ane echocardiogram to see if there might be any source coming from your heart. Also there is a test called transcranial doppler which can look to see if there are any small clots moving through the arteries running to the brain. ...Read more

Explain how sodium chloride treats anterior basement membrane dystrophy. I also have severe dry eyes and blurred vision in one eye.

Explain how sodium chloride treats anterior basement membrane dystrophy.  I also have severe dry eyes and blurred vision in one eye.

Dehydration: Because the ABMD has faulty epithelium to basement membrane adherence, the hypertonic NaCl draws out water from the corneal epithelium so as to keep it from loosing its tight contact to the underlying basement membrane. This in turn helps to lessen the symptoms of pain when the epithelium lifts off. ...Read more

Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?

See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive. It could be as simple as needing an updated pair of glasses if this is just eye strain(which can cause blurred vision, headaches, and stress related twitching around eyes), but it needs to be ruled out because it could be more serious. ...Read more
