    I was reading and all of a sudden, my vision start shaking. I thought I was tripping. It was shaking from side to side. I looked up from my book and attempted to focus on different objects in my surrounding, and my vision continued to shake. Does anyone have an idea of what could possibly be wrong, and should I go to the doctor or am I actually just tripping???

    Hi there!

    I definitely suggest that you see a doctor about your symptoms. It's better to be proactive rather than to be reactive when it comes to your health. It's better to address whatever is causing your symptoms.

    In the meantime, check out our symptom checker where you can narrow down what could be causing your shaky vision.
