In many cases, there is no reason specific reason for nystagmus.

Signs and Symptoms

The primary symptom of nystagmus is a rapid, uncontrollable movement of the eye. The movements may be present in one or both the eyes. These movements can be from side to side (Horizontal nystagmus), up and down (vertical nystagmus), or in a circle (rotary or torsional nystagmus). The person may move and keep the head in certain positions that help in reducing eye movement and facilitate better focus. A person with nystagmus may have blurred vision and complain of difficulty seeing in dark, sensitivity to light, dizziness, and problems with balance. Tiredness and stress tend to worsen the symptoms of nystagmus.

    • Rose Thorp says:

      I got meningo-encephalitis in june of 2021. They said it was caused by my cancer, cronic lymphocytic leukemia. My white blood cells went past the blood-brain barrier. I was hospitalized for 34 days. I have a downbeat nystigmus, my eyes move up and down. I also have severe dizziness, sensitivity to light, and balance issues. I haven’t fallen down, but I walk like I’m drunk. I also have double vision. Both the nystigmus and double vision come and go but the dizziness is always there. Usually the morning is really bad for about 1/2 hour. Mostly the nastigmus, but sometimes double vision too. I used to have terrible nausea, but I started taking carbo-veg and I’ve gone the whole month of sept 2022 w/o getting sick. I use to throw up 10-15 times a month previously. Is there a homeopathic med that will help my nastigmus, dizziness, and double vision, and balance issues? BTW, I only take 4 under the tongue tabs (very small) a day of carbo-veg. I got them from a health food store.

  9. Trish Aulenbach says:

    I have been suffering with nystagmus for almost 4 years now. I had a brain bleed in my brain stem due to a cava noma that ruptured in my brain stem. My right eye shakes up and down and my left eye shakes up and down and sometimes to the right and left. They are constantly shaking and never stop. I was wondering which Homapathic medicine would be best for me.
