Droopy eyelid and constricted pupil

NumbskullNNumbskull Posts: 1,526
I was just wondering if anyone else out there has experienced this? I know it's called Horner's Syndrome, mine started immediately after my foraminotomy a month ago. I've also been having severe headaches, and feel like someone is stabbing me in the same eye that is affected. Was wondering if that's part of it, or are the headaches a separate issue? And, how long does it take for this to go away? Any ideas are so appreciated, thanks!!
Good health to all!!

  • I'm not sure if the headaches are related to that, I just thought the stabbing pain in the same eye that it might be. My NS referred me to a neurologist about this, I hope he has good news for me (as in it won't last).

    If you search Horner's Syndrome, you can find out what causes it, basically, it's a sympathetic nerve that controls your eyelid and pupil that has been either damaged or simply irritated from surgery, trauma, or various other reasons. I also don't sweat on that side of my face, have you experienced that as well?

    I have heard of other people who had it, and it did go away with time, but I haven't heard of the headaches, so those just may be spinal related.

    Good luck and good health to you!!!
