I have had headaches from my stenosis/bone spurs/arthritis in my neck since 2011. About a week ago, I had temporary vision loss in my right eye with horrible headache, jaw pain & pressure ..at first before the vision loss it to me seemed as if I was getting sick..like a sinus infection was setting in. My right gland in my neck was also sore. Long story short, ophthalmologist said eyes were fine but wanted to get some tests done for carotid arteries, blood work etc. I have perfect cholesterol, bp is fine. I did do a doppler today on the neck so we shall see. Has anyone ever had issues with your stenosis causing this? I have herniated discs in c5-c7 & have whatever its called where you no longer have the natural curve in your neck. Just wondering if it could get inflamed & do something like this??? I had severe headache for days first (normally they come & go) & all my headaches start in the nape area but this headache was bad in that it was just one side, pressure in face, painful eye soreness, scalp tenderness & numbness. Like I said, headaches daily but this scared me because who just goes blind in one eye for about 5 hours? Any info would be greatly appreciated. I just HATE feeling like I am 86 when I am 46.
