Eye symptoms

I have been experiencing a strange sensation with my eyes, its like they jolt really quickly side to side, as if they are doing like a double take. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I think you may be referring to what is known as nystagmus, a jerking of the eyes which is often seen in people with vestibular disorders. It’s one of the things they look for when testing people with dizziness/vertigo.

Here’s something about nystagmus.



Thanks for your reply, the problem is that I don’t know when it is going to happen and when I told my neurologist about it I couldn’t show him because it wasn’t happening at that time and I don’t know how to make it happen it just happens randomly so he said there was no sign of nystagmus, when really there is.

Maybe you could pull out your cell phone and video it and then show it to him so he can see what you are talking about?

Is this the same as I get first thing in the morning when I get out of bed? Its like my eyes are not keeping up with me moving my head? Its sort of quick and jerky. Can anyone understand what I am talking about :?


Is this a symptom of MAV?
