All right. I wake up everything's ok. I go to church and as I walk out my pupils are suddenly huge. I found this out because the sun was killing me!! Both of my pupils are dilated so large you can't even see the color of my eyes. So I let it go for a few hours thinking it'll be ok. Well I end up in the emergency room where I've had blood taken for STD and Lymes (both come in clear of anything later). I am told I have Adie's pupil. I get referred to a neurologist and he tells me Adie's as well but the clincher is I have NO other symptoms. I don't drink, do drugs, take medication or anything else. After a week my pupils have SLOWLY shrunk back to normal but I get nauseous and a few headaches but that's from having to repeatedly take my sunglasses on and off. I've had repeated reflex tests and finally I am referred to an opthamologist who tells me it was a freak incident and doesn't mean anything. Ok. Now I'm irritated. He mentions the possibility of spring pupil but I can't find info anywhere.
