I was diagnosed with Ocular MG in April 2007. I originally had double vision with some sagging of the eyelid. If I looked at a person they had two heads, I had to wear an eye patch. The Neurologist started me on Mestinon. This helped but I still had double vision on the peripheral, good vision straight forward. Keeping my head straight forward, if I look up, right, or left I would have double vision. If I look down, I would have some slight double vision and eye strain when reading. I could live with this, Tri-focal glass were out because the lower lens would be double vision. Bi-focal worked because I can have the lower lens high enough to get out of the double vision area. Its like tunnel vision in a way. In Aug 2008 my MG generalized and my ocular went back to complete double vision and I could not open my eyelids. The Neurologist started me on Prednisone & Cellcept, then IVIG. My ocular vision went back to the tunnel vision with peripheral double vision. My Neurologist thinks that my tunnel vision is permanent. Has anybody experienced this tunnel vision?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
