It is painful ophthalmoplegia, requires evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that your husband is having headache associated with drooping of the eyelids and double vision probably because of limitation of extraocular movements.

These symptoms indicate neurological problems and require examination by a neurologist to find out the underlying cause.
The common causes to be ruled out are neurologic migraine and other conditions causing painful oohthalmoplegia like nerve palsies.....

Hence I advice you to get neurological examination by consulting a neurologist.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards

My MIR report reads: well circumscribed mass in the left paradoxical muscle at the level of c4_5 deep to the left semispinalis muscle belly . Marginally increased from 9x8x14mm to12x11x16 . There is a slight mass effect and deviation of surrounding muscles.Impression: previously noted mass along g left paraspinal muscle at c4_5 has very marginally increased from 4_17_13. It does show enhancement and could represent a small peripheral nerve sheath tumor or other soft tissue mass. My question is ? What s is the next step? From reading this report, is this something I should be alarmed about?
