with the systems ive got ive been told its pmr.



Hi Steph

I can't help but think that the problems you are having with your left eye and left ear regarding hearing loss might be linked. What is your GP doing about your hearing loss?

I have not had either of these problems, but 3 years ago, before I developed PMR I had laser treatment at the front of my retina as I had developed a tear, which was due to my shortsight. I think this damage was probably in the radial retina - around the edge. Not the macula, at the back, where the optic nerve is.

When you next see any of your doctors I would suggest that you ask them to write down the advice they have given you for your future reference - it is often difficult to remember what they have said. I sometimes forget and I ask them to jot things down for me.
