How soon after diagnosis which comes after falling often do the symptoms get really bad? I was diagnosed over a year ago and so far vision therapy has improved my forward eyesight 45% and I read very well. The only thing that remains is double vision when I look hard to the side and my balance especially in the morning which diminishes in an hour or two. I dread the severe effects and am fighting them with eye therapy and the gym and anger at the disease. Any thoughts?
