I was diagnosed with PA a few months ago. My symptoms were IBS for the last few years, tiredness, exhaustion, decreasing physical/sporting ability and tinnitus in the last 6 months.
I also have glaucoma and have been monitored for nearly 20 years as my pressures were on the high end (22 or so). About 6 years ago I had signs of damage to my optic nerve & was started with drops which brought my pressure down to 14-16 but the damage & sight loss continued. I've had to have an op in one eye to reduce pressure to very low (under 10) and have maximal drops in the other eye.
I asked my eye specialist if the B12 deficiency could have contributed to the damage to my optic nerve but she didn't think there has been any research to show this. However, recent publicity about nitrous oxide/B12 deficiency/blindness suggests otherwise.
My question is, does anyone else with B12d have glaucoma/optic nerve damage and if so was it caused by high pressure or like mine merely normal to highish pressure?
