My thyroid tests were all normal so I know it isn't Graves Disease. I was injured around my right eye which resulted in a bilateral bruise and swelling for 2 weeks, however, the swelling never went away in the top part of the lid and there is still a bump in the corner where the injury occurred 6 months ago. It was an awfully hard hit to the outer corner of my eye which on impact blinded me with swirling white stars. I am being treated with prednisone but the progress seems slow.
I also included a snapshot of the CT scan in my profile page if that helps. Thank you
