Your history shows that you are suffering from multiple problems. Unfortunately no one will be in a position to advice you unless we see you clinically.
All I can say is your condition may still involve multiple visits and intervention till you get significant relief

hi toni-ann priest ,
yes due to your avoidance of regular laser sittings it has resulted in some serious infection further leading to photophobia,in this condition its better to have resected surgery under supervision of opthalmic surgeon ,but it will definately take much time before your vision becomes absolutely normal..

get well soon !!

Often at about 10:00 am and sometimes after lunch I get dizzy and notice a sensitivity to light. In extreme cases I get cold sweats and throw up. On one occasision I went to the emergency ward with dry heaves and came out 5 hours later. Suggestions for treatment please. The emergency room did a cat scan, MRA, blood test etc. The doctor called it a migrain but my head did not hurt.

I had a week of constant migraine pain with extreme sensitivity to any light, and used ice packs (mask) on eyes trying to sleep, with 800mg Motrin and 1000 mg Tylenol, alternating. Also, my eyes would nearly swell shut after lying down, and have a drainage. I took 10 days of a Penicillin based antibiotic and had felt better within 8 hours. I took the antibiotics 2x daily for 10 days.I felt so much better, got my energy back and was well until 48 hours after my antibiotics were completed.I do not have a clue what is wrong.

My father has had severe breathing problems for several years. Pulmonologists could not find anything wrong with his lungs. Last month, he saw a ENT who said that his epiglottis is too large and is not functioning properly, which is the cause of his breathing problems. He said that laser surgery can be done to trim the epiglottis but it's very difficult to know how much to trim - and if too much is taken off, he will end up on tube feedings the rest of his life. Who is the best doc in the US to treat this problem?
