Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you Susan. I have had unrelated electric shock sensations to other areas of body also bottom of legs and back as confirmed L5 nerve root compression and what I see in MRI as osteophytes at L4/5, L3/4, L2/3 arising at superior articular process bilaterally abutting to dura sac. I assume arachnoiditis ossificans. and into arms.
Shock sensations also was felt at arms and upper back and muscle wasting and twitching and loosing muscle mass starting to feel like old lady! So I bought Crazy Fit Massage vibrator. This overcome most electric shock sensations that last a split of a second.
But the neck which shows other changes at C4, C5, etc I neck to me looks like is out of allignment as it appears to be a fracture at C6/C7 and looking through the mouth in the x-ray shows the centre part shifted.
This gave spasms and ongoing neck problems that I have had massages to reduce pain, add elasticity and shoulder massage to release neck shortening symptoms.
I saw Pain Specialist orthopaedic surgeons...who just look at my x-ray and say you have chronic pain syndrome...and should see Pain Clinic. Am on waiting list for a long time..!!!
Was given amitrip by Pain Specialist, but some improvements but returned to pain, given I see many structural mechanical changes in spine.
For the eye...this happened for the first time since the adjustments to upper neck. If it is cleared by eye specialist that eye s are clear....then what exactly is the issue with neck?
I have come a long way with multi modality treatment on managing my pain. BUT eyes ...this is serious... Any neuro surgery options do you think? Could it be a disc bulge, or facet osteophyte...usually where exactly does this nerve irritation is close to?
I know..particularly when they cannot answer simple questions when I even show them fractures and poserior end plate narrowing, fracture on ilium and they agree and when they write report they say no significant fractures are seen. Have read too much on contraversies in this orthopaedic game with injuries.
When they do not answer or correlate corrrectly..I too wonder how they fix problems...or create more problems. That is why I am looking at many opinions given theirs are short with only have chronic pain....and then what? Too biased for the masters who feed them!!!
Does this ongoing shocks damage eyes in the long term? Does it leave stroke type fat deposit in the nerves causing nerve narrowing?
Would the facecial nerve be trigeminal neuralgia?
Would give facial symptoms also?
I thought Trigeminal neuralgia would give pain to eye, jaw or cheek, but not shock only at tip of eye and disappear after hitting at it or mild multiple flikerring is what is the symptoms?
I see a nerve distribution picture that fits with your 3 branches. This is noted as sympethetic nerve. It is marked as pterygopalatineor cilliary ganglion. This cilliary shows coming from base of skull and the 3 branches one is branching out from C1 and C2. So what you saying is the impingment is most likely from C1 or C2?
I guess your answer to this will finalise my correlation!
I mean pterygopalatine
Could it then be the 3rd branch which is pterygopalatine that arises out of C1/C2 impingement to be the most probable source?
?? please answer my last question so I can close this conversation..
R U There?
Thank you Susan for your answers. I am sure you were not expecting to meet a patient like me!!!
I would have paid a bonus for your honesty with your opinion...but I am not paid a cent for last 4 years for my acute and chronic injury. I am fighting the "system" and have many more questions for orthopaedics and neurologists to go.
I am sure these answers will indeed lift your profile for patients...but provided they ask the right questions!!
