Getting a glare screen and setting up an ergonomic evaluation for my work station to assist with neck pain.
Hopefully in a week at a full dose of Mestinon my blurry/double vision will be improved enough so I can return to work. Next week on Thursday I plan to get my vision checked at optometrist's office.
I really would prefer to be at work instead of waiting around for the medication (a pill) to work.....
After reading more about myasthenia gravis on line, I have determined that even though my blood tests have come back normal I could have what is called ocular myasthenia gravis which affects only the eyes and usually does not progress to include other muscles but would need follow-up with the neurologist with any changes in symptoms. There is no "usual" progression and each patient is followed for symptoms.
The other sign that this is probably myasthenia gravis is that the symptoms can change from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour which would explain my sudden improvement of vision on the day I saw the ophthalmologist on the 28th of December.
I hope the medication I am on will allow me to return to work soon and only "time will tell."
In the meantime, I am getting caught up with my laundry and cleaning out that closet....
