I wanted to update anyone who may be interested headaches triggered when reading.
The neuro opthamologist I saw was the first doctor who thoroughly understood my headache issues, dysautonomia, and ehlers danlos hypermobility. Since I had not had a MRI in a few years, he ordered a MRI to rule out EDS related issues such as chiari, tethered cord, excess fluid, brain settling, and some other possible issues. Thankfully, my MRI was clear. My eyesight is also not the problem. The doctor said my headaches are nerve related (which is how my neuro has been treating me).
On my last visit, the doctor changed my effexor xr prescription to Pristiq, because he said Pristiq is better for nerve pain around the eye. So far I can tell somewhat of a difference. I have an appointment in two weeks for injections around my eye. The doctor is not sure yet what type. He talked about Botox, but I am somewhat leery as Botox treatment for headaches did not work on my daughter and regular Botox did not work on my sister. I think I will ultimately end up with a nerve decompression for one nerve above my eye.
The good news is that the doctor said that my EDS pain medicine nucynta is not contributing to my headache.
That is all I have for now. Baby steps but progress.
