Was it an MRI or CT scan?
It was a CAT scan.
Any pain?Have you been on steroid pills?
There is no paid. I am off the steroids for about three weeks. The
symptoms returned the day I got off the steroids.
Can you hold for one minute. I have to step away for just a moment.
The next step should be an MRI. You may have a condition called idiopathic orbital inflammation. This is often treated with steroids, but sometimes it is important to get a biopsy.
A MRI gives a much better picture than CT.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
