I had my annual neuro visit. This time I was curious about the loss visual contrast sensitivity. The last time I saw my LLMD, and he tested my contrast, he put me on two scoops of Cholestyramine. That is one nasty drug (definitely need to stir it in warm water). The CSM did not seem to make much of a difference, but did have a positive effect on other things. I dropped the CSM. I went to see an ophthalmologist at my optometrists recommendation (he did not think my vising corrected well enough). The ophthalmologist without testing my contrast sensitivity deemed it normal aging (how the old fool came to that conclusion we may never know). My neuro did not agree but offered no suggestions. He said I need to go see a neuro-ophthalmologist.

What makes the contrast problem different from every other problem is that it is constant. The Lyme/MS issues would/will come and go, but this does not change. Do I have another doctor in me?
