I have severe neck pain on the right side, that causes pain on right eye for several years now. I've been to a neurologist and did the MRI. The doc told me that it's a nerve that goes from behind my neck to the back of my eye. And he offered to shoot something into that area to numb it. It stayed in effect for about 30 days and I had to come back to shoot again. I told him that I didn't want to keep coming back every 30 days. So he gave me pain killers and I have been taking it since. MRI didn't show anything wrong. I went to PT as well and when they massage my neck the pain went away.
At first the pain level went from 1 to 10 in 8 to 12 hours. But in the past 14 days, it went from 1 to 10 in 30 minutes. When this happen, I feel like something is crushing my eyeball. I felt that the problem has worsen. I don't know what to do. Pain killer is definitely not an answer that I need. What could possibly wrong with me?
Dr. Tom are you still there?
Yes I did have an ophthalmologist evaluate my eyes. He said everything is ok.
Yes the ophthalmologist evaluation was done several years before I went to the neurologist.
I also went to a chiropractor, and Physical therapist.
Yes I do, I live in Denver, CO.
Please do. You sounded like godsend to me right now.
That's all Doc. Thanks for your help and have a good night.
Good morning. Here are two references for you to consider:
Wilson W Bruce Neuro-Ophthalmology & Orbital Srgry is listed under the Denver Ophthalmologists category and is located in 850 East Harvard Avenue Suite 355, Denver, CO. It can be reached at phone number (XXX)XXX-XXXX.
Because of the complexity of your condition, I would consider the first link. Dr. Bennett is chairman of an academic department, where the level of care should be surperb.
Please understand that I do not personally know these doctors.
Thanks for letting me help you. Best of good luck. Dr. Tom
Thank you for your help Dr. Tom. I have contacted Dr. Bennett and is waiting for the hospital to arrange an appointment.
