Horizontal Rapid Eye Movement In Coma
I have uncontrolled rapid eye movement where my eyes flutter up and down at least 10 times a day or more this happened all my life, what causes this?
Flutter: Fluttering eye movements may be an oscillopsia or blepharospasm. Oscillopsia is a normal finding, often inherited-- as long as you don't find distortion in your vision, it is benign-- blepharospasm is usually benign as well and can be caused by dry eye, stress, caffeine, allergy, or fatigue. ...Read more

Can nucynta (tapentadol) 100mgs cause hallucinations and uncontrollable rapid eye movement with eye pain w it?
Yes and no: There have been post- marketing case reports of Nucynta (tapentadol) causing hallucinations. I did not see any reference to rapid eye movements or eye pain associated with it. It would be a good idea to see an optometrist to see if you have glaucoma which many central nervous system drugs can trigger. A neurology or ophthalmologist should evaluate you for causes of nystagmus, the rapid eye movements ...Read more
Had EEG done. I was WIDE AWAKE (taken ADD medince that morning)results stated theta waves, rapid eye movement, and facial twitches. Normal results?

Should I be worried about waking up with rapid eye movement (closed lids) when waking up in the morning opening eyes and seeing everything moving just as fast from top to bottom. This also happend about 3 month ago. I have been dizzy when getting up from
Is coughing, moving fingers, raising hand a little when pinched and slight movement of eye lids a good sign for someone in coma?
Better than nothing: Coma can be considered as reversible if some responses are noted. These responses may be from deep structures and not from true conscious centers. However, they can be considered as signs that the coma is reversible. Degree of recovery may still be uncertain, and time for recovery may be uncertain. ...Read more
What happens if a person moves there body, or eyes, and has bowel movements or urinates while in a coma does that mean they?
Need more informatio: Urinating and bowel movements will continue even in coma. Motor movements may not be purposeful. They may be significant if they are in response to requests for movement or to touch or noxious stimuli. They may not be purposeful and represent involuntary reflexes. Eye movements are significant if they represent pursuit of or looking toward visual stimuli. ...Read more
Laser eye surgery: It is possible with some laser platforms to do corneal refractive laser surgery on a patient with nystagmus (if that is what you mean by rapid eye movement), in order to correct myopia. Surface ablation / prk would likely be the best choice, if the rest of the evaluation indicates the procedure would be safe for that patient. ...Read more

I see a circle in my left eye vision this morning. The circle travels following my eye movement. I put lubricant eye drop. It didn't help.?
Visual defect: If the sensation of a defect ("circle") in your visual field persists for more than 20 minutes you should see an ophthalmologist. Spots ("floaters") are common, and usually benign, unless numerous and persistent. Large defects than this that are persistent could be a sign of retinal tear or vitreous degeneration. Get it checked. ...Read more
The spectrum: Of retro-orbital pain on eye movement can range from the benign to the emergent. Fever would indicate either infection or inflammation. Coupled with eye pain on movement you could have something as non-emergent as sinus infection with peri-orbital inflammation to viral/bacterial induced retro-orbital process. A visit and assessment by your pcp and basic imaging can reveal the answers. ...Read more
