Sudden long distance sight problem in one eye

I have ehlers danlos classical and have noticed a sudden loss of long sight in my left eye. The left eye is now very blurry and i am now needing to wear glasses. I have seen an ophthalmologist who has ruled out anything obvious but i am concerned it could be related to my ehlers danlos. The ophthalmologist was not a student of ehlers danlos and was not helpful at all. Am also wondering if it could be related to impinged nerve in the cervical base of the neck caused by my flaccid neck muscles. …See More

"You could try showing your current GP this article: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1279/ or ask to be referred to a rheumatologist or geneticist for assessment. GP's 99% of the time are hopeless at diagnosing it and you will have to…"

Has anyone managed to find a GP or specialist in Brisbane or Qld even who will actually prescribe either Tramadol or Palexia? Both work well for me but I get the "you're an addict, hypochondriac, neurotic, malingerer" routine 99% of time. Moral indignation x 100!NSAID'S work but have hiatus hernia due to EDS/HM and 2 -3 bowel movements / day despite FODMAP diet. Trying turmeric but not sure it has any benefit over ibuprofen. Cutting out dairy, gluten, caffeine helped. Have cheese, yoghurt,…See More

"Sorry for reviving old thread. Is there any chance he treats as well?  Does he prescribe Tramadol or Palexia at all? Or is he abhorrent to using pain meds? Latest on these: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1279/ includes cannabinoids. Our…"

"I had breathing issues and was tested and dx with "vocal cord spasm". Cold air makes me cough, swallowing tablets can be hard, and hard to not choke on food and drink sometimes. Also known as 'hyperventilation syndrome'"

"Also, be careful when taking bicarb!! At least two hours after taking any other medicine. Bicarb contains chemical compounds, hence it can help but also interact with other medication badly."

"Hi Janet. Try taking B1 and B2 histamine blockers I.e. Telfast and Ranitidine. I was taking up to 800mg telfast when I was in flare up. Also anxiety can cause your throat closing issues, jaw, depression etc. Think about your symptoms and I assume…"

"I have EDS. Disloyalty I strongly believe is created by excess histamine from over active mast cells 'Mast Cell Disorder'. Telfast twice a day kids will change your daughter's life out of site. Then once the EDS flare up calms down,…"

Danny Bates replied to Vanessa's discussion What age did your gastrointestinal problems begin?
"No and it starts when you are born. You need to try and work out what is causing the issues and stop her eating it. This will create other ongoing issues in her body if you don't."
