Uneven Pupils
« on: January 29, 2014, 10:44:36 PM »
I've been going through a really hard time these past couple of months with intense health anxiety over various things, including a brain tumor.

In November I had an MRI without contrast of my brain. I have also been to the eye doctors multiple times over the past few months, as well. (I hope that is enough to rule out a tumor) Anyway, I noticed even before my MRI that my right pupil was a little bigger than my left. It's not always like that... Sometimes (especially lately) my left one will be bigger. It's about a millimeter difference. It's been happening almost every night now. Any ideas as to why this happens? My mom said it happens to her occasionally in the morning.

I started taking Prozac almost 2 weeks ago so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it happening more frequently? Doubtful, since it happened before that. (just not as often)

Any help would be appreciated. I'm really tired of worrying about a brain tumor. I have so many other strange vision problems as well...

MRI alone would rule out a tumor and eye exams are pretty good when it comes to finding sinister things in the head from what I've heard.

So you think the mri even without contrast would rule out a tumor?

Then I start questioning, "what if it was too small to be seen in November and it grew since then?" I'm so tired of worrying about my vision problems! But thanks
