Hello, my son, who is 29, was recently diagnosed with nystigmus. At this point they have ruled put any inner ear cause. It was at first suspected to be linked to Meniere's disease because my husband has it. He is being scheduled to get an MRI to rule out any tumor near the optic nerve or MS as a cause.
This is a very puzzling disorder and the more I read on the internet the more anxious I get about it. His vision is blurred when he looks across the room form side to side quickly. he says it's as if a blurred curtain passes over his eye and it takes time to go across his main line of vision before it clears.
The information on the internet makes it seem as though idiopathic nystigmus is rare or less common. It presents as though nystigmus is almost always connected to or caused by some very serious life threatening cause such as a brain tumor or MS.
Can you point me to any area where I can learn more about treatments, progression problems and common causes of the disorder?
