Do many of you guys have the sensation that your eyes are sort of bulging out of their sockets? It’s beginning to happen to me much more often recently and it’s extremely uncomfortable. I suspect it’s linked to a little too much Ldopa in ones system? I’m not sure whether other people can tell this is taking place or if it’s just a sensation. Must ask my family.

Or take a selfie before and during.
Sometimes it is linked to thyroid issues.
You are right. What may be the possible check/solutions for that?
Glaucoma is not usually felt (although I was always sure I could feel it) but is something you should definitely get checked out. Even a puff test at a regular eye test will let you know whether any further investigation. Levadopa is contra-indicated for closed angle glaucoma so get it checked
I’ve had the puff test recently with no negative results. It definitely happens to me when I’ve had a fairly large dose of C/L.
Seriously, I'd try a selfie before dosing (from front and side view) and then again when you feel as though it is bulging. You may be able to tell if it is bulging enough to be visible, or if it is only enough that you can feel it.
You mean like Graves disease? That's where you get the buggy eyes. There are treatments.
Adam, I’ve not had any feeling of eye bulging, at all. I agree with other people, who have replied to your commentary. Scheduling an exam, by an ophthalmologist would be a good thing. I would think that if the ophthalmologist thought it was a thyroid problem, he/she would refer you to a specialist. Good luck! I hope you get a satisfactory answer, from a licensed physician. Doug
High blood pressure?
Negative on both counts guys. Had both within the last 2 months? From what I’ve researched it’s called Ocular Dyskinesia. Thanks for chipping in though.
My dad also a pwp, had issues with an overactive thyroid ( mine is under active) and his eyes would buldge A simple blood test to check
It’s definitely something you should monitor, but it does sound like a little too much levodopa mayhap. I don’t have that; in fact, my eyes at times seem beady. Sort of like a bird that spotted a bug.
A family member had Graves disease and one symptom is bulging eyes. I believe it involves the Thyroid. I would hope a doctor could help?
It can be ocular muscles’ dystonia or even dyskinesia like you said as a result of too little or too much dopamine.
Does it happen when you try to make eye contact with someone?
Not what you're looking for?
