I'm 13 years out and have had several issues that plague some of us DS'ers. However, my latest medical issue has me a little worried and I was wondering if anyone else might have had similar experiences. Before I go on I want to say that I often try to link everything to the DS, possibly sometimes I shouldn't but sometimes there is definitely a connection. I truly believe that in order to get a clearer picture you have to explore alot of dead ends. I'm worried that vitamin issues might have played a part in this latest medical oddity. On Sunday night I was about to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine when I noticed my right eye had a large blurry patch in the center. Vision around the outer ring was fine just a large blur in the center. It went away and then came back again a few minutes later. This process repeated several times over the next 20 minutes or so. Large blurry gray patch in the center of the right eye. No pain. I contacted my eye Doctor and he told me that I might be experiencing a TIA and that I should take an aspirin and go to the ER. I did. After blood work and a CAT scan it was determined that I was not having a TIA and that the scan was clear as was my blood work. Advised to follow up with Opthalmologist. I did the next morning. After the usual exam and a couple of photo images of the eye, I was advised that I might have a Central Retinal Vein Occlusion in the right eye and that I should see a Retina specialist, which I will do tomorrow morning. Of course, I must do some research on this to try to settle my brain as I am very frightened of losing my eye sight. I do not fit into the usual category of someone with a CRVO. I am not diabetic, I do not have high blood pressure, my age is 50 and so on. I did find some information that suggests that on occasion there are conditions that mimic CRVO that might be tied to Iron Deficiency Anemia which I have and am treated for and have Iron IV infusions every 8 weeks. So, to make a long short short and confusing I just wanted to reach out to see if anyone out there has had a similar experience. Of course, Doctors are dubious about the wide reaching effects of the DS and the subsequent Vitamin issues, etc. So, I guess I just wanted a little support and a little more information. Thanks y'all.
