friend u have not mentioned whether u can see things clearly or not.if vision is ok you should get urself checked by a neurophysician either, because bilateral disc edema along with vomiting indicate towards raised intra cranial pressure which should be urgently diagnosed and treated at the earliest.moreover u r also having diplopia also .
