The best would be if my uncle was here together with me. I do not have a overwiew of all his tests. But he have had operation in his hed several times since tha age around 25 because of limited natural drain from his head , ie pressure builds up and have giving him bulp in his head above the eyes earlier. But this is not the case this time. I saw him today and got worried because the eyes has mooved quite a distance outwards . The eye spesialist in Tromsø have checked the eyes for inside eye pressure (was a little bit to high) and other normal checks. He also has dry eyes but not asberger desiest?. They hav taken alot of blood teste which are sent to south of Norway for investgation and he has taken "røntgen" norwegian word, they scanned his body
