Something pressing on my 3rd nerve causing double vision and ptosis
@rogernj67, I'd like to bring @ashby1947 @dsh33782 and @Erinmfs, who have or have had experience with double vision and/or ptosis (lazy eye).
Roger, is this a recent issue? Have you had eye problems before? Did it come on suddenly? What did your neurosurgeon say are the next steps?

Well, I am seeing a neurosurgeon on Monday for a consultation. I was diagnosed with partial 3rd nerve palsy 10 years ago but vision was good up until 10 months ago even though I did have the droopiness of the left eyelid. But the last mri shows something alongside the third nerve now and the doctor needs a contrast mri now of my orbit. All this started right after my PMR began and, of course, Prednisone. Anybody else ever have this happen?
