I have been in a bit of a slump lately, health wise. I noticed last Dec. that I wasn't seeing correctly out of my right eye. And it is causing some horrendous headaches. I went for a doc. visit and he sent me to a specialist in Boardman. Several test and guesses later, I had to go to Cleveland Clinic. The neuro-ophthalmologist thought I had a small stroke in my eye. I had to have a spinal tap Wed. morning along with some more blood work. The blood work was okay, it showed no stroke. But my spinal fluid was elevated. Which he explained that means I have excessive cerebral fluid on my brain. He prescribed some meds and if they do not lower it, surgery is the only option. The spinal tap was a kick in the butt. It has put me down for three days so far. Has anyone has something similar to this? What was the outcome. Did your sight come back? How long does it take to recover from a spinal tap? The spinal headache is killing me.
