On 31st December I woke with a terrible headache. I noticed that my left eye was droopy. The headache went away but the droopy eye stayed. Since then, around 10th January I was hopitalised for severe headaches. MRI' s, scans etc were done and medication provided. The headaches still come now and then but my eye has not improved. What is the problem and how can it be remedied?
