Ptosis, drooping eyelid – MRI what areas to have focus on

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have the following challenges with my left eyelid, which has now been on for over several months.

  • Ptosis, drooping left eyelid sometimes more than others
  • Sometimes the outer of the upper eyelid moves and it feels like it is tensing and releasing.

Based on the above, I have decided to pay for a full MRI scan. In this case, I would like to specify to the radiologist/neurologist all areas they need to have extra focus on when doing the MRI related to my left eyelid.

I'm thinking of mentioning the following, but would very much like to hear if someone think there is something I have forgotten, or need to be more specific about.

  • MRI of the brain with extra focus on eye socket and third cranial nerve
  • MRI of the neck

I look forward to see you response 😃
