I'm just desperate for answers because even though my symptoms have been thoroughly explained countless numbers of times as far as constant pain & pressure not only in my right eye, but also the entire right side of my head & extreme visual disturbances, I can't even get a response from my pcp because she won't comment & will only go by what the radiologist report said & her suggestion was for me to see a psychiatrist because she believes I am just depressed & just like the commercial says, depression hurts...those were her exact words.
So I'm not on here fishing for any type of new patient-doctor relationship, nor do I expect a full blown interpretation from anyone on this site, I'd just appreciate finding out some information as to whether or not this could cause me to completely lose my sight &should I ignorantly accept the "depression theory" or should I just go with what my gut instinct & what medical knowledge I do have & not stop until I find the medical attention I know I need & the respect I deserve?
Thank you for your time & attention.
Consider the U of TN or Vanderbilt Dept of Ophthalmology, and an oculoplastic surgeon there.
I am not a doctor, so I can talk a little more freely.
Have you ever been struck hard? Did you fall? In other words, how would you have gotten an orbital fracture?
As to the pcp: Personally, I would not go back to that physician. "Depression hurts" is all she had? You may or may not be depressed enough to need a shrink, but on the other hand, one cannot take a picture of depression, and something physical enough to be imaged has happened to your skull. That needs to be explained.
I was in a car accident which crushed my infraorbital foramen back in Jan 2000 but I don't know if this is residual injury from that incident or from where I slipped & fell hitting my behind & then my head in July 2010. You can msg me or add me as friend if you'd like to. I've got some other things I'd really appreciate being able to discuss freely with someone.
Thank u...please read comment 2 other member, if there was a way 2 discuss this, I would accept that new non expert friend, too... I suppose reading about Vandy is somewhat of a clue since I did go see a group there but that was about something else neurological & before these scans were taken, but I sent a copy of them to the person I went to as soon as I got my hands on them. Just waiting 2 hear from her. I also work in a sewing factory, bending over, lifting heavy objects, looking down almost constantly, & recurrent sinus infections from all the wonderful dust, fuzz, & lint floating around. All of the aforementioned probably isn't a good idea for work experiment for any person with scans showing such problems as previously listed huh?
Oculopastic surgeon....would that be in association with an Opthamologist or separate practice? I'm thinking my next appointment with my regular neurologist way up in May probably isn't the best choice of action? I need to make a decision much sooner & which of those institutes would suit me better I wonder....
Thank you again...
*environment, not experiment....sorry, my phone makes its own phrases sometimes ...
