Hi, My husband was diagnosed with Horner's syndrome in Dec-2006. He's 52 years old. He has had work up with a neurologist and he can not find the cause.He's had CT scan of head, MRI of head & neck, MRI venogram of head & Lab work done. The only thing that has shown up so far is thyroid is borderline and uric acid up (he's been on gout meds for a few years). He started taking levothroxine 50mcg a week ago and doubled the dosage on gout med. My husband has episodes of visual problems, pain in back of head & eye, sometimes when he's been laying down, the opposite side of his arms & legs feel asleep for a couple hours. He has other episodes hard to explain weird sensations in different areas of his body, one being in his neck area-a rush feeling up his neck area & feeling short of breath. We've noticed he is swollen (puffy) around his neck on both side down toward his shoulder above the collar bone area on both sides. Health problems before the Horner's sydrome diagnosis include restless leg syndrome and he takes meds (requip) that helps some. Has high blood pressure takes 2 different BP meds. Also has high cholesterol and takes Lipitor. Would you have any idea of what else to do to find the cause of the horner syndrome? He does not feel good. Thank you.
