Brief Answer:
Visit your neurologist, Get Vitamin B12 and thyroid levels checked.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I understand your concern. There are various causes for eye numbness like Diabetes, Peripheral neuropathy, Sensory nerve trauma, Conjunctivitis, Sensory nerve compression, Cold, Cerebrovascular accident (stroke) or Eye injury.

Yes as you have a previous history of stroke and also presence of multiple old bleeds, these can have long term effects on the nerves and cause numbness.

Other causes like Vitamin B12 deficiency or thyroid disorders can also present with above symptoms.

I would suggest you to visit your neurologist for an MRI or EEG for detailed examination, better diagnosis and treatment. You should get your vitamin B12 and thyroid levels checked as well.

I hope this answered your query.

Brief Answer:
No negative effects. Get vitamin B12 level checked.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

No taking multivitamin tablets will not have a negative impact. As your thyroid levels are normal then there is nothing to worry.

I would suggest you to get Vitamin B12 test to ensure normal levels and visit your neurologist.

I hope this answered your query.

re: fasting blood sugar and autonomic neuropathy. I have hyperadrenergic postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. mild peripheral neuropathy in my legs with pain and swelling, blurred vision. I am hearing from other friends with POTS that they are finding overlapping sugar issues and wonder if I am in that category. I have many symptoms, which I won t go into regarding my condition, but would like to know if there is new data out about autonomic dysfunction and prediabetes. Also, if catecholamines have anything to do with it. My norepinephrine is high standing. I began testing my glucose at home, and I have a high fasting glucose most days. 100-116. During my period, or when I am cramping it is at about 96-99. I have no other high readings throughout the day. And my a1c was normal at 5.4. But I have always craved sweets to combat my fatigue. Not as much now that I am older (41) but it was always a major factor. My question is, do you know about relationships to diabetes/prediabetes and autonomic dysfunction. And do you think I am heading towards prediabetes. Are high fasting numbers something that should concern me, considering my history with hypertension, tachycardia and neuropathy due to the POTS.
