Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It really sounds like your husband is being treated by excellent doctors.......they only problem is that they all seem to be working in their own little vacuum rather then as a team. The multiple diagnoses your husband has been given are, in some ways, confusing. It is possible to have graves disease with completely normal thyroid function.....a stroke in the eye should not cause a third nerve palsy but a virus, aneurysm, etc can...
and it is strange that this all seemed to start with itching and numbness in his temple area.
If I was in your shoes I would go to a major University Teaching Hospital for treatment. I'd start with the ophthalmology department and go from there. It would be very helpful if your could HAND CARRY your records and digital disks with your husbands actual studies, such as MRI, Angoigram etc to the office. Why hand carry? Because there is a 98% chance that if you have them sent to the University Ophthalmology program by your team of specialists and sub specialists the records will fall into a black hole somewhere and not be available on the day of your visit.
If you can tell me where you live and how far you can travel I'd be happy to give you some names of programs near you.
Does this make sense to you?
