I am going to be going to Novus Clinic to get a neuro ophthalmologist to see if he could help get me on the Klonopin that will help with my downbeat and nystagmus. I know my pain management people will complain about it but because it's a medical condition that's being treated they can't fight with me. I rather have anxiety and my nystagmus under control then have anything to do with pain management

      We'll see it's recommended not only by the neurologist but my eye doctor and it helps me be able to see. And I need be able to see to be able to drive and have a normal life. But because I'm in pain management they told me if there's a medical reason for me to have it and it's something that's medical they can't deny it but even though I had trigeminal and neuralgia I was still denied the Klonopin. Now that I know that can help my eyes there's no way they can deny it because I need to be able to see

      Klonopin is anxiety medication not pain med. Am I reading what you wrote wrong?

      Yes you're reading it wrong the anxiety Med when you're in chronic pain you don't get much sleep and an anxiety medication makes you sleep so that way your pain goes down and you use less pain medication

      Yes, people can be very unfair about klonopin but if you need it you need it. Wishing you good luck 🙏

      Ugh nystagmus is terrible! I had it in episodes when I would miss my meds, I found it scary to not be able to see right. Just awful. I hope you can get the Klonopin and finally have some relief.
