I have what I would describe as tunnel vision in my right eye, but have yet to be diagnosed with a cause to this problem. I first noticed this problem when I was 15 years old and trying to participate in marching band. I was constantly in trouble for not walking in line with people to my right, and it was then I realized I had a very limited field of vision in my right eye. I am now 20, and the problem is persistant. I also suffer from migraines, which increases the tunnel vision in my right eye. I feel that doctors cannot find an answer to my problem, and have dismissed the problem as migraine headaches. Even when I'm not having a migraine, I still have tunnel vision althought it does worsen when I am having a migraine. I have had two MRI's, where I never was able to view the results myself, and was told that my brain appeared normal. So, is there pressure on my optic nerve that is causing the limited field of vision? If the problem is pressure on the optic nerve, what is causing it?
I have never been diagnosed with a brain tumor, but lately I feel that I could be experiencing some symptoms of a brain tumor- I've been getting confused, for example getting lost on my college campus that I have been attending for nearly two years, I opened the freezer door instead of the microwave when the timer went off, and could not remember where my food was. I have had an almost constant headache, and been feeling sick and vomitting with no real cause. I am tired all the time, and have diffuculty getting my day started because I feel so unrested even when I have had plenty of sleep. I am getting ready to make another appointment with my neurologist, and I would like to have some idea of what questions to ask or a suggestion for something else to test for. I am feeling lost and I fear that there is a test or problem that is being overlooked that could be the cause of my vision loss and migraines. If you have any idea what could be causing these problems, I would appreciate any advice or ideas, no matter how much of a long shot that suggestion may be.
