"I feel like I've just had a spiritual enema"

And in other news, my right iris has stopped responding to light levels.


Correction: it's adjusting, it just seems to be open wider at low light levels

Oh and...

Not that I'm aware of, and I think I'd remember...

Hmmm. Can be a symptom of something nasty if it follows a blow to the head. So it's not . . . but I'd get it checked out soon anyway if I were you, although it could easily still be trivial.

I would note, before anyone gets too panicky, that this phenomenon was noted after two glasses of red wine, after he'd been rubbing his eye a bit because it was irritating him. I would imagine that either of these things could be extenuating factors.

Urgh. Happened to me in the wake of my car accident (my left pupil dilated and never went back save under the influence of a prescription eyedrop that also made me sick). I'd recommend seeing how soon the NHS can get you to an ophthamologist to investigate that; it can be caused by anything from head trauma to a cranial nerve acting up to incipient neurological issues like MS. They'll probably want bloodwork and a head CT.

been here, done this. Good luck with it.d
