Default SCDS Information

Hi Jowilk74,

I came across this thread and your post and thought I would make myself available. I have SCDS and was diagnosed about 5 years ago but have had symptoms for about 11 years. This condition is pretty rare but there are still quite a few people that have this. One of the unique symptoms of this condition is being able to hear your eye movements 'the gritty swish sound'. I have researched this quite a bit and haven't found any other conditions that have this symptom. It would probably be good to get some follow up testing to see if you do have SCDS. Symptoms from people with this condition vary quite a bit. I would be happy to correspond more if you have questions or want more information.

Default Another due to withdrawals

I can hear my eyes move as well as focus. After reading the thread and comparing life events to the times it has happened, it is definitely a 'withdrawal' response for me. Never had it last more than an hour or so....until now. 5 days or so. Can barely function. Wanted to keep this thread going.

Default Swishing

I have eye swishing. I switched from Prozac to Zoloft about 8 months ago. My swishing started around that time but it persists. I get swishing when I move my eyes to quickly. Its usually one or two swishes and maybe a slight off balance feeling. I also have some vascular issues and I am worried it might be related to that. Has anyone had these swishing sound persist?

Hi robbie919,

I haven't had this problem but I can easily believe that it's real--and annoying. The vestibular system in the ears is connected with eye movements, and maybe something goes haywire with that connection. I'm guessing here though.

You might want to run this by your primary care doctor and maybe be referred to an otolaryngologist. And it does sound as if this situation might be connected with the Zoloft you're taking. Why not ask the prescribing doctor about changing the dose or substituting a different drug?

Thanks for the reply. Yea, I have been changing meds for other health issues so I have been waiting on changing the SSRIs. I plan on eventually trying switching back to Prozac to see if that helps.

Currently switching back from Zoloft to Prozac. Been a few days still no improvement. My swishing sounds like karate chops in a movie. Google 'kung fu sounds' . Watch the video. its that swoosh swoosh sound!

Hearing sounds that aren't there is a type of hallucination, and both Zoloft and Prozac can cause hallucinations. In fact, you're supposed to contact your doctor if you have hallucinations as a result of taking Prozac--see what it says under "Prozac Side Effects":

Prozac Uses, Dosage, Side Effects & Warnings - Drugs.com

I hope you'll be in touch with the prescribing doctor so that an adjustment to the dosage can be made, or maybe you'll need to give up on the SSRIs.

I was originally on Prozac and not having these issues thus the reason I am switching back. SSRIs have long half lives and it can take a while to get one drug out and the new one into your body. Going to give it a couple more weeks and will follow up with the GP then. Thx

Confused

I'm so so happy I found this post, I thought I was going crazy!

I have multiple sclerosis but I didn't believe that what I'm experiencing was just another symptom of MS. When I move my eyes quickly, from side to side sometimes, and also sometimes when they're closed, I can hear a 'swooshing' sound as described by many people in this post.

It seems to have started last week, and now I'm realising that this coincides with me tapering off my anti-depressant medication.

I'm just wondering if anybody could tell me how long should I expect this withdrawal symptom to last? I hope so!

Hi robbie919. I have the same sound as you when I move my eyes. The Kung Fu chop sound along with dizziness and other symptoms.

I was wondering, you mentioned vascular issues. Could I ask what your vascular issues are as, I hope you don't mind, but they might give me a clue.

We might also be able to help each other on this.

Thanks.
