My wife was diagnos with Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome on the 06.8.2013
She spend 6 days in the hospital.
She was initiated on a pulse steroid course of Solu-Medrol
550mg IVI daily for 5 days, with supportive treatment, including potassium and calcium
replacement and omeprazole, to prevent side-effects.
She significantly improved on treatment while still in hospital on the steroid pulse. The headache decreased in severity, and abduction of the left eye improved.
She was discharged on oral Prednisone 60mg per day per os with a gradual taper.
All her blood test came back normal.
She completed the oral Prednisone 60mg on the 10.9.2013
Her vision was almost back to normal (no double vision
She went for a follow up on 19.8.2013 to be re-evaluated!
After a MRI brain scan on the 25.10.2013 the doctor put her back on a 2 mouth steroids course!
A day after taking the steroids her vision started getting bad and a couple days later she started seeing double again!! Why?????????
