Hi @nanatessie and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I think you might also be interested in this discussion where @jill333 @jmb73 @kkimmers007 and @intheyear2525 talk about gamma knife treatment. I'd also like to bring @pegorr @mrector and @mkjames who have experience with meningiomas involving the optic nerve.

Tessie, have you had a discussion with your specialists about how cerebral amyloid angiopathy might affect some of the symptoms you're experiencing? Or is it clear that they are caused by the meningioma? Have other treatment options been suggested to shrink or treat the tumor?

I have been told that the amyloid angio would definitely cause these but also the meningioma could cause it. I have been told so many different things that I am not sure what to think. Thank you for those other places to look. Do I just push on those places and it'll come on?
