I have a new neuro who deals with Neuro eye problems mainly. Appparently a lot of problems can be seen by looking at the eyes . I go for an appointment on Thursday and hes gonna do some special tests!!!!!!!!

    Thank goodness! Its about time you got some help.

    Actually, they probably won't find anything, but at least you have their attention.

    Did you feel like you were having a transient ischemic attack? Or full blown stroke?

    Could you talk ok? Movement ok?

    How scary these things are! I hope you get some answers, or at least reassurance that nothing serious is going on. If they let you go home, does that mean the CT scan showed nothing? Did they tell you?

    Let us know how you are, ok?

    Well it just showed the same as before but they were concerned that nothing had been done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways the Neuro PHONED me this evening!!!!!!!!! I was shocked. He got my previous MRIS and talked to me for about an hour about them. Hes talking to the Neuro I saw in the beginning and gonna do some tests when I see him on Thursday. He said he failed to understand WHY they had not done anything about this.

    I was amazed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There were a lot of screw ups with this whole thing and he realized it. Would love to hear what he says to the other Neuro!!!!!!!!!!! Other Neuro wrote a letter to my doc and said No Disease(MS) or Malignancy. Just said follow up on Mass in pituitary. this new Neuro wanted to know how I was feeling today and seemed very concerned. Told him I was nauseous, extreme fatigue and severe leg pains. He asked how long I had this and I said three years and he thought i said three days and I said no YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Again he was shocked. Also in the hospital they treated me so well even fed me and it was Roast chicken, potatoes and asparagus. After fruit and a cake type thing. NOT like hospital food at all. Nurse said you have to keep your strength up. All other times they have treated me like crap. BUT THIS time i focused on PT! So they kept saying the patient with the brain tumor. NO MENTION of CFS or FMS. WOnder how would treat you Wake with three of them?????????????????Anyway have to go now. They are testing around here for Carbon Monoxide posioning so I asked them to come out and should be here shortly. Apparently you can have very low levels that only affect the sick. Will let you knoe Lots of Luv ANNIE!!!!!!!

    This is a list of systemic diseases with ocular manifestations.

    An ocular manifestation of a systemic disease is an eye condition that directly or indirectly results from a disease process another part of the body. There are many diseases known to cause ocular or visual changes. Diabetes, for example, is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in those aged 20-74, with ocular manifestations such as diabetic retinopathy and macular edema affecting up to 80% of those who have had the disease for 15 years or more[citation needed]. Other diseases such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and hypertension are commonly found to have associated ocular symptoms.

    This doc is a Neuro who specialty is in the eyes. It's very interesting and I will know more tomorrow. They said after one test I won't be able to see very well - Lovely!! But I will try and get back to you tomorrow. Told Hubby he has to get me a wheelchair at the door cos I'm feeling so weak right now
