Quick question on a odd question from the eye specialist

Posted , 5 users are following.

Any one know why an eye specialist would ask if I had pain in my shoulders? I went to him because I've been having symptoms that were diagnosed as anxiety until I noticed my pupils were different sizes which got me an instant referral to the eye specialist he said everything looks fine no pressure in my eyes or anything that points to brain tumor or anything but he had me go to a neurologist just to be safe which he said everything looks good my neuro functions are fine but he scheduled me for an MRI just to be safe, now that the story is out of the way lol, when the eye specialist asked that question it took me off guard cause I have no idea why he would ask that just looking for an idea as to what it means and google was no help lol

    Could be that being tense and anxious would give you back or shoulder pain

    I Googled and found:

    "Tension in the neck and shoulders can lead to eye pain, as tense muscles can press on eye nerves at the back of your neck."

    "Muscle tension in the upper back, neck and shoulders can lead to headaches or problems with your vision, as the flow of blood to the eyes is restricted. "

    Hello 33cody

    We spoke over the Christmas period.

    How are you?

    So did you have an MRI?

    What are they looking for?

    I constantly have pain in my eyes/behind my eyes & have pain in my neck & shoulders. I have had this since 2009. Still haven't found a solution but I go to a chiropractor tiwcw a week which helps a lot. Also my pupils have been 2 different sizes since 2003. I've been to many neuroogists who really have been no help. I have tried everything from nereve blocks to botox. Please let me know if you have found anything that helps you. I am also very light sensitive esecially to sunlight.
