My right eye won't move to the left passed the half way point (towards my nose) and if I don't focus, just settles on the right side of the socket. I have had 3 MRIs, an MRA, an EMG and a dozen blood tests and neuro opthos and neuros do not know what is causing this. The two main culprits seem to be MS or a stroke, but nothing shows any signs of these two. Has anyone had this condition - and if so, what was the cause of the INO? They are reluctant to put me on steroids as this may hinder their ability to see what the problem is - but it has been 5 months. I have had no pain or any other symptoms. I have to wear a patch over the eye so 1 - I don't scare people and 2 - I don't see double and triple vision. My eyes do not move together. Thanks for anything you might know out there. Tim

  • A friend of mines sister has this same condition and the doctors said it is a thyroid disease but all tests show nothing is wrong with her thyroid. Have you had that checked. I've also heard just because thyroid test show everything is fine if you get thyroid test from a specialist it shows more. They treated her with steroids and she has changed her way of eating to Paleo the whole 30 and she is showing lots of improvement. They say heal yourself with what's on the other end of your fork. Check it out it has helped my inflammation tremendously. No more back pain and it's really not a diet it's more of eating what fuels and heals your body plus in 8 weeks I have lost 19 pounds and haven't tried. Good luck!
