Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can rabied dog bite cause diplopia?
My dog was in conatct with a rabid dog. Though it did not bite him, he had open wounds which i suspect may have been cause of the virus moving into body. He got 3 vaccinations after that incident.
Now, a month and a half after that incident, he has developed diplopia. He suffers from High blood pressure and tests for multiple sclerosis is negative.
Can the diplopia be due to the contact with dog?
- Normal pressure hydrocephalus & metoclopramide (1 answer)
My Mom while recovering from a hip fracture in a rehab center was given Metoclopramide for 2 days when she suddenly (about 2-3 hours after her dose of metoclopramide at lunch time) became completely disoriented,lethargic and could not speak. She could barely swallow, and could not drink liquids even using a straw. Her legs/feet kept twitching and she kept raising her arms above her and repeatedly wiped her mouth every few minutes for more than an hour. I insisted that she be transported to the hospital. The E.R. staff ruled out stroke, and the next day an MRI was negative for stroke. I am wondering if the metoclopramide is at the root of her problem. She can speak slowly but her words are gibberish. Does this sound like a reaction to metoclopramide?
- Does aricept shorten life expectancy? i am a 61 year old women with mild dementia.
I have rcently been diagnosed with mild dementia and have been started on a low dose of aricept (25 mg daily). Will it shorten my life expectancy at all? Is there any research?
- Aricept back pain severe
Both the neurologist and internist agreed on giving me aricept. I began with 5 mg about 4/17/13 and went up to 10 mg one month later. I've had excruciating back pains for the past 2 months & never thought it could be from the aricept. I had cortisone injections into my lower back on 6/18/13, which helped for about 24 hours and now the pain is back. Really, the pain is throughout my body - shoulders, knees as well as my back. Today 6/30/13, I will begin omitting aricept to see if there is any improvement.
- Could diplopia caused y botox lasts more than 5 months?
The night that I had botox injected I noticed a double vision incident. It went away until 3 months after, now is back and permanent. I have gone through different tests (MRI's, CTs of the oritals, blood tests, etc) to rule out other diseases...all negative. So, we still think is a botox effect. The only question is..will it last?

- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
- Lumigan and double vision
my vision was good before I took lumigan since taking the drug I have developed partial double vision ,I can only think it has a connection .My doctor tells me that's not possible.

Diagnosis of Lewy Body dementia
From this study (1 week ago):
My mother has moderate to severe A - Fib and suffered a TIA two years ago, at which point she began a regimen of Coumadin. She was on no other drugs at the time other than maybe Thyroid med.
After many month on Warfarin, she switched to another blood thinner, Eliquis, which made her feel very depressed. She resumed the Warfarin and developed very annoying double vision, which appears to be correctable with prismatic lenses in her glasses. She is 91 and I asked her if the double vision was corrected if she covered one eye; she seemed to concur, so I infer she has monocular diplopia. Currently she is only taking a baby aspirin daily.
Questions: How likely is it that the Warfarin/Coumadin caused the diplopia?
Is this side effect permanent?
