Sat, Jul 13 8:08am · Something pressing on my 3rd nerve causing double vision and ptosis in Eye Conditions

Thanks for replying, Erin. I think they wanted to test me for MG but maybe not now after this damn MrI showed something on my third nerve. Did you have imaging?

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?

The neuro ophthalmologist showed me my mri and it shows an abnormal soft tissue up against my third nerve. I can read just fine but driving and walking are a problem unless I tilt my head up a little. Seeing a neuro surgeon to see what he thinks but am wondering if anyone else has or had this problem and what if anything was done. Thanks.

High white blood count is due to the pred. See how you feel on six mg. Do you have recent cpr and sed rate results?

i Have that imbalance feeling, too. Don’t know why.. Well, hope the 4 mg works. You might be setting a record for getting there so fast. Lol

3.5 months and so low a dose already. Do you have some morning pain and stiffness? I do.

If Pred did not help, I think the PMR diagnosis needs to be re-examined.
