Good evening, I am hoping this will be my last question for a while I apologise for asking so many. I only get a few minutes with my doctor and no time to ask questions. I will give some history then ask my question. Originally five years ago pappilledema
was picked up, however I had no other symptoms, so I was given a brain scan and sent on my way. It has been picked up since. In March I had an eye injury (an accidental knee to the eye socket) the eye was very bruised and swollen. Query fracture of eye socket.
Vision after became distorted (it may have been distorted before however after the injury was the first time I noted it). My vision on the Amsler chart has wavy lines (right eye only) horizontal lines are broken, vertical lines are bulging. I have had every
test known to man! They know it is a macula
problem but they cannot find it. I am awaiting a fluorescein test but that will now be the end of January. So during the test the doctor picks up papilledema again, and apart from the eye sight, I have had no symptom.
Until one day I had a bleed on the optic nerve head and then felt drunk for a whole week and pretty much since. I was referred to a neurologist, diagnosed with IIH, and placed on 250mg of Diamox, increased to 500mg, which caused really bad sight problems,
so they reduced it back down to 250mg, I am yet again feeling drunk, have random popping and pressure behind the left ear, feel like my eyes are being pushed in (both) my vision in the right eye is decreasing (the right eye papilledema is actually worse than
the left). In addition I also have tilted optic nerves. Which leads me onto my question. Two nights ago (about 48 hours ago) I was sat at my computer and looked across out the corner of my eye and noticed a shadow on the right eye outer side of my vision.
It isn't in my eye line and I suspected I was seeing my lens
(it kind of looks like I am looking skewed through the lens). But I woke up yesterday and it was still there so I took a trip to the eye hospital. She did my visual fields which were fine. And she
did my pressures which were fine, and she dialated my eyes and had a very good look at the back of my eyes. Now she said she couldn't see any reason why I have this shadow on the right eye, and sees no reason for it and sent me home. My concern is that I have
metamorphobsia causing the macula type problem which hasn't been decided this is me and my research, I wonder if this new vision obscurity is a worsening symptom of the metamophobsia. What should I do? The eye doctor sent me home, if it is to do with the pressure,
it is imperative I am seen sooner rather than later? I await a lumbar puncture (I hope to go in next week) but in the mean time, I worry I will lose my sight. I apologise for the long winded question but wanted to give you the history before I asked the question.
