Some of you know me, I had a carotid artery ligation (cut if off at the base of the neck) to stop blood flow to the aneurysm. The scan shows it as a black mass now, which is great news. However, I still have pressure behind my left eye, feel kind of swollen at the temple, have the pulsing tinnitus in my left ear.....I am going to try and go for an MRI, I just feel something is wrong. Twice now I've seen those zig zag type lines in my vision, no big deal, but unsettling. I'm running on 3 arteries now, if I bend down for too long, I get sort of a stinging around my left eye, or move around too quick the pulsing in my ear increases (my heartbeat I guess). Just not feeling as great as I hoped to be 7 months out of the surgery. Any thoughts appreciated :-)
