Eye problems again, went to an ENT


And have set up a neuro-opthalmologist appointment for Wednesday which I may not need.

The ENT Specialist noted that my nasal cavity is very inflamed and eye problems as I’m describing can be caused by a deep sinus infection or absess in one of the sinuses so I’m going for a CAT scan to determine if one of those is the cause.  Until then, though, I’ll impart his recommendation to any nasal sinus sufferers that he recommended sinus flushes such as the Netti Pot.  I use a steroid spray and his recommendation is to separate the two treatments out and do one of those treatments in the morning and one at night (either or).  Makes sense to me and I told him that’s what I’ve been doing.

OK, so gotta get off the computer as eyes are going.  Oddly, making art isn’t usually a problem for me.  I think it’s to do with the angle of the eyes (i’m more likely to be looking downward while painting, etc., and looking ahead in computer work and driving — yes, they occasionally go wonky when I’m at the steering wheel too.)

I’ll be damn glad to get this friggin thing resolved, that’s all I know.

Later, gators.
