      I just returned from my ophthalmology appointment and the doc says my pupil on the right is very constricted. This was the first time this has happened, and my first appt since H started about 6-7 weeks ago. Same side as the H.

      anyone else have this experience??

      what is a constricted pupil? does it mean it doesn't get wider if it gets darker and doesn't shrink with light? have you had a MRI scan already?

      does it still react to light? I guess I would go for a MRI scan to see if it's something in the brain just to be sure especially if all your 'problems' occur on one side. did the doctor say anything to the constricted pupil?

      He said he would look into the H.

      I am going to contact my PCP.

      Just checked my pupils to be sure. All fine.

      What did your ophthalmologist say? I suspect if they think it's neurological, then your PCP would refer you to a neurologist.

      my ophthalmologist doesn't know if there's a connection. He said he'd look into it though. I'm going to see about going to a neurologist.
