Occasional onset of double vision, headache on temple on moving head. Temporary relief with neck exercises. Guidance?

When sitting down I get the occasional double vision and when lying down get a headache in top right temple when I move my head. I have visited GP and can find nothing. Two other people I know have had similar symptoms. They have been to optician and GP nothing found. One was given exercises for neck . I have also been to Chiropractor who gave neck a tweak it got better but has come back again.

Thank you for posting your query.

Based on the symptoms, I feel most likely, you may not have any serious neurological illness.

Intermittent double vision indicates weakness of muscles of eyeballs. A neurological disease that can cause this is myasthenia gravis. In this condition , other symptoms may include drooping of eyelids, difficulty in speaking, swallowing, chewing food, etc. An examination by a neurologist would be helpful in excluding this condition.

However, the most likely cause could be eye muscle strain. For this, you need to take rest and relax.

Best wishes,
