Should I see a neurologist?

Postby Afi628 » Sun May 25, 2014 9:54 pm

Hi all,

I am really confused and am not sure if it is worth seeing a neurologist or not. I have one large pupil and went to a optometrist. The pupil reacts to light. He asked me if I had noticed my pupils were different sizes before. I looked at past photo's and in some of them the pupil seems a little larger, maybe. In recent photo's it is defiantly larger. It seems to be much more noticeable now. I am experiencing other symptoms such as body pain, headaches, twitching muscles, some random jerks. I have depression and am worried that people think it's all in my head and they don't take me seriously.

Thanks.

not sure if your other symptoms and uneven pupils would be linked, but perhaps tims member 'eyedoc' will weigh in

have you taken any nutritional steps to address the depression, pain, headache, twitching etc? have any docs run nutrient tests or referred you to a dietitian?
