Diagnosed with sixth nerve palsy, affecting eye, double vision. What is sixth nerve palsy?

what exactly is sixth nerve palsey? I was diagnosed with that this morning. It s affecting my left eye. I ve had an MRI , a myriad of blood work. My doctor says he could put me on steroids, but nothing says that they really do anything for the problem. He says it should go away. I ve had the double vision problems since the 2nd Wednesday of October. Any thoughts?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
It is very good question you have asked "VI nerve" I am going to explain you in very short and simple way, it is all about the nerves coming from the brain and it has been given number from one to twelve and they called Cranial nerve, here sixth number deals with the eye muscle, palsy of this nerve will get alright with steroid alone you need not to worry bye
