When to insist on a new opinion.
For years I suffered with what you would call migraines. They prescribed glasses for me to help curb them, but it only made matters worse.
Then the pain behind the eyes, the nausea, the stiffness of my neck and the light sensitivity meant I knew something was wrong.
So I went for a second opinion and I'm glad I did, optometrist scanned the back of my eye and found bilateral Papeladema caused by pressure forcing my optic nerve in the back of my eye trying to somehow make room for the pressure in the skull.
I still have to have a blocker put in for the pain I will suffer for the rest of my life with ther deteriorating sight due to how long I left it untreated.
The Papeladema is now healed, how ever as my optioptic nerve pulls away and tries to heal, and the dura on my brain is badly bruised, I will suffer for quite some time.
I'm glad that I did the second opinion as it was so bad my specialist said I was crossed eyed, previous optometrist said I had lazy eye and needed glasses how wrong he was. Specialist said if left any longer I'd be blind by 30, it's been 4 years since I started treatment with no end in sight.
Please get a second opinion.
