PLEASE HELP!
am worried sick! My daughter-in-law, whose 18, had a terrible 3 day long miagraine last week. When this ended, she started having excruciating pain down her neck and arms, and her hands are numb. Sunday her vision started blurring, and now she cannot make out anything. Her pupils are completely dialated, and won't return to normal, even when a light shines in her eyes. On top of all that, her eyes now look "wall eyed" or turned out slightly. We have taken her to 3 ER's now, and all have pretty much said she's after drugs and do nothing. I finally took her to a chiropractor, who said her BP was 140/105, and that she's afraid of stroke. We cannot get into a nuerologist until Monday!! She cannot sleep for the pain (appox 3 hours per night), and her eyesight is getting worse on a daily basis. The chiro is worried as well, and has contacted all the neurologists she can think of to get her in early. We are terrified that her vision loss is permanent. Please help with ANY advise! Our local hospital told us not to bother coming back to them for treatment, since her XRAY did not show anything!!

Hi,

Was a cranial CT scan or MRI done? An x-ray will not be able to define any bleeding or inflammation in the brain. The symptoms seem to have persisted and appeared to have progressed. The presence of defects in pupillary responses and eye movement warrant further evaluation .One has to rule out a stroke before any diagnosis of a benign headache or migraines is given.

Is your daughter taking any medications prior to the symptoms? Any previous history of an injury or trauma to the head? Anything significant in her birth or developmental history?

Bring her to the nearest ER and do demand for immediate attention. A high blood pressure,loss of vision, new onset headaches, numbness and other manifestations of a possible brain attack require emergent intervention.
