horner’s syndrome update! (with diagnosis)

in response to https://www.reddit.com/r/eyetriage/comments/d9vzal/another_update_on_anisocoriapossible_horners/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

what feels like forever ago (before september 2019) i went to the doctor for symptoms of horner’s syndrome. fast forward a few different doctors visits where i didn’t get anywhere. eye doctor finally calls me a month later and says he’s going to refer me to a neuro-ophthalmologist.

-get my appointment a month later -diagnosed with horner’s syndrome -get mri a week later

and found out i have a large tumor on my carotid artery causing my horner’s. he said it’s most likely benign but i’m slightly worried. but there ya go. i’m getting a referral to an ENT and we’ll go from there.

this is mostly just an update in case anyone was curious. i know horner’s is kinda rare.

any advice?
