I have a right frontal hematoma (52 mm x 14 mm) that was caused by blunt force trauma (12 yrs ago). After numerous CAT and MRI years of dealing with a neurologist that doesnt seem to want to correct the problem but mask it with medications. Symptoms have become quite severe, migraines 3-4 x weekly followed by nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, slurred speech, equalibrium feels off balance and noise llight intolerance, faint buzzing in ears and noises seem very distant. A few of people have even told me that one pupil becomes larger than the other at onset of migraine. It almost is like I am extremely intoxicated but I don't even drink. Medications are not helping and I believe it may be a mild form of TA's or mini strokes. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do? Also the state in which I live has maybe 2 or 3 neuroligists. I am thinking of having flullid drained but getting my doctor to do it, well its been 12 yrs what does that tell you?
I think you would be well within your rights to have a second opinion from another neurologist. what you describe to me could be a combination of migraines and drug induced symptoms. It could also be hemorrhaging, caused by medications themselves. Dilation of pupils is common with drug use. If your doctor has recently changed or up your medication this could be causing this. In any case I would want to see another neurologist as you are perhaps rightfully losing confidence in your present doc.
