I had a bleed after anesthesia for an unrelated condition a few years ago. When I woke up, my eye was swollen shut and entirely red. (subconjunctival hemorrhaging.) It turned out to be an AVM bleed, but I didn’t find out the cause for a few years.
Since then, my AVM has resolved. I have platinum coils and it took 3 embolization procedures. Aside from the bleed years previous, I noticed I still had a problem because the AVM made the veins in my head sort of prolapse, meaning a mass would push on the back of my eye and cause pain. Even worse is looking down, as it causes ptosis and pain. You can see the mass as it pushes out of my eyelid area.
This morning, I woke up with a terrifying amount of pain in my left temple. I can tell this is all related to the AVM site, however the AVM itself was resolved.
Has anyone else here experienced something even remotely similar? I cannot lie on my left side, or else I have a sort of blood pooling that causes a black eye. Most of the doctors I have seen shove me off as too complicated. I’m starting to feel crazy.
