Dark glasses


Posted by cliff (Cliff Gilinsky,cliff), Jul 23,2001,14:32   Archive
Hi everyone; Its been a few days since I tuned in and quite a bit has happened. I go some real dark glasses and the first day I wore them to work was probaly the worse day of spasms that I've had. The next day (Sunday) started out the same, badly, but in the afternoon something strange happened. The best way I can describe it is a war going on in my head. It felt lake the preview of a intense spasm but it would not come out. Got a bad headache but only had a couple of spasms the rest of the afternoon. If this makes any sense at all it feels like two kinds of nerves are fighting for control and it feels terrible. Has anyone out there had anything like this occur to them? Can anybody put a name to it? Read the "they really don't care" how true. I did finally get the attention of the 3 men that work with me. Told them if they see me walking through the building with my face contorting and making grunting sounds, that it is perfectly normal and not to be concerned. Finally got their attention. Anyway thanks folks. This place has got to be like a extended family. Cliff

"war going on in my head" ... "nerves fighting for control" ... "headache" ... OH YES, OH YES, OH YES. Finally, someone who shares those odd symptoms with me! I have told doctors for several years now that it feels as though my eyes are fighting with each other. They refuse to focus correctly. No one understands, and they just say it must be that my blood sugar is high, or I'm stressed, or ....

I came home from Spokane with the most terrible headache this afternoon, after having to be in there for several hours and trying so hard to drive carefully and get my doctor visit and errands finished. Plus it was hot. I grabbed my frozen stuff out of the car, put it away, got into cooler clothing, and told my Benji dog that we were napping. I immediately fell asleep for three hours under the ceiling fan. My head felt like it was a jumbled heap of barbed wire until I slept it off.

Sally, I used to love my ceiling fan. Now I rarely use it because the air movement from it dries out my eyes.

Mine, too, but sometimes I just have to use it. Same thing happens with the car a/c, so I turn the vents away from me, but there is no way I can give it up. I'd melt. It's always a trade off ... keeping the eyes more comfortable, or keeping from turning into a puddle of butter.

Sally, The air movement is great for drying out things so add a little humidity like a vase of water in the same room, it might help. Chris

yes, cliff. that is the feeling i get when the botox starts to work and the side effects set in. it's like 2 pulling forces in opposite directions for awhile and very very uncomfortable and painful for me.

I had that feeling before I ever had Botox. It was one of my first really bad symptoms, so I can't attribute it to the Botox. Sometimes the pulling forces are relieved by Botox, but after the last injections, they came back in full force. I wrote to the neurologist and told him, so will see what he has to say about it at my August visit.
