Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    During the time I've had ME/CFS I've had constant sore, gritty eyes, night glare problems and stabbing pain behind the eyes (mini migraines as I think of them). But until recently my eyesight has always been excellent and tested at 100%.

    Since the last downward sprial that put me out of work though, my near eyesight has deteriorated badly to the extent that I now need reading glasses. This shouldn't be at all unusual as I'm now pushing 50.

    But. I'd assumed the problem was the usual blurring of vision due to age, but working at close quarters on something I discovered that I was actually seeing two perfectly clear images.

    A little googling suggests this is a common symptom with ME/CFS although relatively new for me and I'm only aware of it close up.

    Does anyone have the same problem and had their eyes tested (I haven't been tested in about 7 years)?

    This is a major symptom of B12 deficiency. My mum was officially diagnosed years ago with MS and the reason she was taken into hospital was because she had double vision, a headache and nausea. However B12 deficiency can mimic MS and I believe that it was really a B12 deficiency she's had all along. I suggest you go on either Freddd or Rich's protocol.

    I have bad eyesight and go in every two years for testing, and usually new lenses. My eyesight hadn't really deteriorated when I went in last year, but my focal point (or something like that) had shifted dramatically from 2 years prior.
