Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I don't believe the lump on the back of your neck and the eye issue are related, nor do I think the lump is a lymph node -- wrong area. The lump is most likely a lipoma. Have your GP have a look at it, or maybe a surgeon.
The pupil issue may be do to the herpes virus getting inside your eyeball during your episode and damaging the muscle tissue on your iris.
Is the problem with my pupil permanent, will it get worse or is it just temporary?
it is likely to be permanent and not get worse.
Is it Adies pupil?
No. Adies tonic pupil is, classically, from syphilis.......different thing :)
It is due to damage to the muscle that dilates the pupil from the herpes virus. It can sometimes be seen with the slit lamp at the ophthalmologists office
What about the pain in the back of the eye, eye aches and migraine will that be permanent?
The migraines will come and go. If they are a frequent issue there are meds that you GP can give you to treat them. As far as the pain behind the eyeball the most common cause of that is not usually an issue with the eyeball itself but rather the sinus area. Concerning your light sensitivity, that could be from a number of causes and the best way to sort those out is with a complete exam by an ophthalmologist.
Does this make sense to you?
Yes, that does make sense. Thank you for your answers.
