Out of the frying pan. . .

So, to be sure my records get to the neuro-ophthalmologist I'm being sent to, my optometrist's assistant faxed me a copy of my records.

I was told I had lost peripheral vision. Or so I heard. Maybe my optometrist said it wrong, I don't know, but what I've lost is temporal vision. My optometrist called it "bitemporal hemianopia" in her write up. A quick Googling and there is one thing that often causes this.

Tumors.

Some are listed as being benign, so there is hope. Regardless, they are intracranial tumors.

Christ, I'm not sure worrying about which is worse. Losing my eyesight or possibly a brain tumor. The latter, though, might explain some of the cripplingly painful headaches I've had lately. I thought they were sinus headaches, but more than once a handful of ibuprofen and sinus meds failed to relieve the pain.

I don't go see the neuro-ophth doc till the the 12th and 19th(the tests needed to be done take up to four hours). So I have plenty of time to worry about this. And I just found out the test on the 19th is going to leave me practically blind. She said that it's like the dilation they do at the optometrist's office only much, much worse. Ugh.
