    Cool Double vision anyone?

    Double vision anyone?
    Hi all does anyone get double vision especially after reading and often when waking in the morning. Or could it be linked to my muscle issues?

    Never had double vision, just fuzzy and blurry. I'd have my eyes checked if I were you. Your vision is not something to mess with.
    Good Luck and hugs for you

    Cool Thanks Nonna

    I had previously assumed it was linked to myasthenia Gravis but was just asking if it was linked with Lupus. Thanks

    I have to agree with Nonna. It needs to be checked out. It could be a side affect of the medicines, it could be a symptoms of CNS issues from the Lupus or several other things. It is really important that you go to an eye doctor and a neuro very soon.

    Please keep us posted

    Ok thanks I will get it checked! I have had it on and off since 2007. I have had my eyes checked since and the eye Drs just ignore it. Sometimes I can't read the 80 speed sign on the road .. Ok I am not driving when this happens. Thanks I have recently moved so I will bring it up to my new Dr gp.
