my symptoms have been drastically diminished lately, the main reason I haven’t posted in a while. Whether that’s due to the changes I’ve made to diet or B12 supplements, I have no idea.
But one thing has been bugging me over the past 6 months, and I was hoping for some advice.
When I’m tired, I can’t focus too well and have a tendency to go cross-eyed. This is mainly at night-time, although it does occasionally occur at other times of the day when fatigue is kicking in. Let me be clear - this isn’t a debilitating fatigue (which I did have an experience of for about a week a good while back), but is more a standard tiredness that anyone can have at the end of the day or when they’ve slept badly etc.
Question is, should I consider this cross-eyed phenomenon as just my eye muscles getting older (I’ll be hitting the big 50 this year), or should I get it checked out?
The last time I saw an optician was about a year ago, and she did notice that my eye muscles were weakening, but I hadn’t told her about any other of my health issues at the time.
For info, it’s been confirmed that I have damage to small fibre nerves in the legs and one motor nerve in the left foot. Even so, I don’t want to assume every problem I have is automatically connected. Is this eye thing something I should worry about, or should I just mark it down as my body tiring normally with age?
Thanks for any advice
