My girlfriend began noticing that one of my eyes was bluging almost 1 yr ago. I noticed it too, but thought at the time it was due to lack of sleep (it would bulge out more when i was tired). A few weeks ago, it got really bad, so i went to the docs. My tsh is normal and so is my glucose levels. He referred me to a eye doc who said that it could be:
a. thyroid eye disease
b. orbital psuedotumor
c. orbital tumor (eeck...cancer!)
He based that on (if i remeber right0 my eye pulled to the right when i looked up. Not sure how that is. I'm going in for a MRI as soon as my insurence kicks in. My question is: since i've been to the doctors, my eye is much better. Is the fact that its an intermmittant issue give any more hints to what this could be? Thanks so much...
