I so appreciate you taking the time to reply Dr. Diana 🙂 I have had 6th cranial nerve palsy ruled out by two neuro-ophtamologists who sent me to this person as there was “nothing more we can do for you”. I have had many MRI’s, and have had scans of the back of my eye done but high ICP has not been picked up. I have stated that I have symptoms of increased ICP but have never felt “believed” by any medical docs. I do know that my symptoms of ICP fluctuates and it may be that it was not high when testing was done. I have tried Diamox since this problem presented in January and did not find relief.
I am on the waitlist for new MRI’s as it has been two years since my last one but in Canada it is about a 1year wait to get an MRI. The other dx tests you mentioned I’ve honestly have never even heard of or had suggested.
That is really good to know about driving with a patch. I wondered about that but was scared to ask anyone in case someone demanded I turn my license in or something. I have watched the driscoll theory and many of your videos. They are very informative and have given me a different understanding of why I have the symptoms I do.
I did call him back and ask him some specific questions about whether or not this would help someone with Chiari as I have ONGOING neurologic issues not recovering from a neurologic issue. He admitted he has not treated anyone with Chiari before but said he would consult with his network of docs and ask for input.
As this is the only option that has even been offered to me in regards to any kind of recovery I am wanting to try but worried it will not give me my vision back and it is not a small amount of money to someone on disability.
