I posted last month re: 2 d0t hemorrhages in my retina. The eye doc said they were commonly associated with high blood pressure, diabetes, or carotid artery disease & said I should see my regular doctor. I have since been to not only the regular doc, but a neurologist, cardiologist & retina specialist. I have had 8 vials of blood drawn & tested. I have had an MRI, MRA, carotid artery ultrasound, heart ultrasound, EKG, EEG...
The only thing that anyone can find wrong with me (besides the retina hemorrhage):
Cholesterol = 229 (LDL = 151)
Epstein-Barr VCA IGG AB = >7.00 (High positive-suggestive of past EBV)
Epstein-Barr NA AB (IGG) =>5.00 (same as above)
Carotid Ultrasound showed <40% blockage in each side visually, but a 60- 79% blockage with velocity (whatever that means)
My only other symptoms are dizziness (sometimes), muscle pain, headache & throat pressure...which I am now pretty sure are caused by
being pushed, poked, probed, stabbed & stuffed into giant magnetic tubes.
I had a re-check with the regular eye dr. today & the hemorrhages are still there. (Another re-check in 6 mo. to see if they're gone).
