Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I am currently on 4mg of dexamethasone for swelling. My leg has now recovered. They are being reduced every week at the moment and at one point I was taking 12mg. The reason was to reduce swelling. For the past couple of weeks I have been experiencing. Not true double vision. But when I seem to wake in the morning the room seems to move around and it takes afew seconds to focus properly. When this happens I need to take aback or try and concentrate more. During the day if I look perhaps to the side quickly it initially shows double and instantly goes away when I turn other way. I don't know if this is stress or tha side effects of the steroids. Anxiousness or what. Is this normal?

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I have a history of pituitary brain tumors (one as an infant, surgically removed and treated with chemo, and one at the age of 7 treated through radiation). I had another brain tumor (miningeoma behind the eye nerves) that has led to these latest bouts of headaches and my rethinking of my health. I have always struggled with weight and am on every hormone replacement due to the effect on my pituitary. I am currently on a mostly vegan diet, which I have generally enjoyed but am starting to reevaluate.
