oz-kate,

I do not have this but I just wanted to say that I am sorry that this seems to be a long standing problem for you. My prayers are with you. B

Thumbs up Re: Orbital Myositis

My left eye was totally swollen I could not open it at all.
I ended up in the hospital in May for 5 days of antibiotics & then Steroids.
I have been diagnosed with an Orbital Pseudotumor, and now also Myotosis.
It is very frustrating trying to deal with something like this when there is no cause or reason.
I was doing fine until last week when the left eye started acting up again. Back to the city and Wills Eye Hospital, back on steroids & pain meds again. I would really like to know what if anything causes this troublesome condition.

I just had an MRI of the brain and orbits on Friday and the radiologist wrote it could be "orbital pseudo tumor" or "orbital myositis". I have had symptoms in my right eye ( eye bulge/double vision/now headaches) going back at least 1 year. I saw an eye doctor Friday afternoon and am undergoing lab tests tomorrow for Graves Disease. Not sure yet the true diagnosis and/or treatment plan or prognosis. It is scary and depressing and I am sleeping more just to avoid the headaches. You are certainly not alone!

Re: Orbital Myositis

my name is amina, i am 39 yrs old and have suffered for 20 yrs like yourself, with orbitol myositis. I have been on long term steroids ever since. I am currently on homeopathic remedies for inflammation. I am also looking into the link maybe between this and Behcets syndrome which my brother suffers from.
