Suffer double vision, extremely stressed, each alone is perfect. What to do ?

started double vision 13 days ago, went to ER, ct scan normal, MRI done 3 days ago, saw the Optomologist again today who said the MRI was unremarkable which is good news no MS or stroke ...sending me to a strabismologist in 2 days. I have been extremely stressed at work lately and think this may have something to do with my anxiety and almost panic attacks. I also have had tinnitus but have for years, nothing disturbing, but I feel like my head wants to explode, no headaches, no pain just pressure. I can see fine right in front of me, computer work, or watching tv keeping my head still but everything goes double and twirls around me when I move, I am allowed to drive with an eye patch. Can see perfect out of each individual eye but not together.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Well, this is a case where it's hard to comment without examining. You do have some ocular muscle movement not right. I would like know when do you see double. Like when you move to which side or up or down. T
How old are you? Do you have diabetes mellitus? Did you have any flu?
There is a chance you a nerve palsy. The one's due to diabetes need control of blood sugar & aspirin to increase the blood flow to the nerve. But if it is viral, you would need systemic steroid and then wait and watch.
You would have to continue with eye patch till your ocular movements improve.
