Doctor :   hello
User :   Hello I'm a 23 year old male from NY
Doctor :   How may i help you ?
User :   I just have a question about a CT Scan I had 2 days ago
Doctor :   sure go ahead
User :   In the CT Scan report It states Findings: 1)sclerosis of the mastoid air cells consitent with chronic inflammatory changes
User :   2)nasal septal deiviation to left of midline
User :   i just want to know what these mean?
Doctor :   sure
Doctor :   what it does means is that you have been suffering from a long term infection of your mastoid region
Doctor :   and if you see we have a septum between our nostrils . which divides the two nostrils
Doctor :   in your case it is deviated to one side
Doctor :   and that is the reason for you have recurrent infections
User :   I see interesting
Doctor :   now depending on the extent of deviation
User :   I've had labyrnthitis along with alot of facial and cranial pain
Doctor :   it is called as DNS Deviated Nasal Septum
Doctor :   now your option after discussing with the ENT surgeon based on how much the deviation is, that you can undergo surgery where they set the septum straight
Doctor :   this condition predisposes you to over and over again infections
Doctor :   since mastoid cells are placed very close to the ear area that explains your labyrnthitis
User :   very interesting ok
User :   I should also mention ive been having blurry vision on left eye for about 10 days now and it was gone for a little bit but it has returned
Doctor :   in both the eyes?
Doctor :   in left eye
Doctor :   and right is completely normal ?
User :   left eye
User :   yes
Doctor :   is it blurred all the time ?
User :   i noticed a took a hour nap then awoke with a blurry eye again in left eye and pain in my left leg
User :   like a very deep nerve pain
User :   yes majority but past 2 days it had subsided a bit
Doctor :   for this is suggest you need to seek a ophthalmologist opinion
Doctor :   as it looks like a nerve involement
User :   i went to opthamoligist he did tests and and said my eyes are perfect
Doctor :   are you able to read perfectly ?
Doctor :   since when has the blurriness back ?
User :   with right eye yes left eye focuses and defocuses
Doctor :   did you mention it to the physician ?
User :   yea he says i have to see a neurologist but i have to wait till january to have my insurance back
Doctor :   then your next step is to consult a neurologist , who can give a more insight to the condition
Doctor :   ok
User :   meantime im just dealing with it
Doctor :   well if it was something serious i am very sure the ophthalmologist would have told you to consult immediately
User :   I also have soreness along my cervical spine ive noticed
User :   like the tissue that surrounds it
Doctor :   that again a neurologist can pinpoint the exact causes and then you can be treated accordingly
User :   could there be a correlation with neck problems and these symptoms?
Doctor :   yes very much as the nervous system is connected
User :   i sleep in very bad positions and always awaken with neck pains and what not and maybe its catching up to mr
Doctor :   well you need to just take proper rest
Doctor :   thats the key issue
