I've dealt with Lyme and co's for over 17 years with periods of remission, etc like a lot of you.

Back in treatment now with all the usual symptoms like fibro, CFS, flu-like and neurologic (anxiety and migraines).

A new issue I've been dealing with is eye issues. I had a complete ophthalmic exam a couple months ago along with a cat-scan and they were all normal.

But, this symptom will not go away! My eyes feel very uncomfortable and heavy with the feeling like they want to go cross-eyed and go blurry, if that makes sense. It's extremely annoying and seems to happen at various times with no known trigger.

Both eyes also seem like there's a slightly detectable delay when I move them. Has anybody else dealt with this (if I'm making sense)and, if so, what did you find relieved it?

I'm currently taking alot of supplements along with A-bart (LLMD prescribed). But no Abx at the moment.My LLMD on the diagnosis sheet listed 'Toxic optic Neuropathy'

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Same here - my eyes tested normal, yet I had many symptoms.

Drinking mangosteen juice works for me - it's an anti-inflam juice you can find in healthfood stores and online. I drink 1/2 oz in the am and pm and it stops all my eye symptoms!

Wow, thanks Robin. I've tried Mangosteen before, but unrelated to this situation. I'll have to get some more and give it a try...
