    symptoms
    Jim,

    I think the answer is YES and she probably needs some tests to rule out mets to brain. These are Scary symptoms to me. I Don't want to scare anyone but I got this info from googling brain metaseses - this is from healthscout.com


    Symptoms of Brain Metastases
    Many patients have no or minimal symptoms related to the tumor, and their metastases are found during a routine medical evaluation. If there are symptoms, they depend on the site involved. Brain metastases may cause headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea or other symptoms related to the nervous system.

    Diagnosis of Brain Metastases
    Studies may include head MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and head CT (computed tomography) scanning.

    Jim,Before I got diagnosed
    Jim,
    Before I got diagnosed with stage 3 endometrioid adenocarcinoma, I had a few strange symptoms. One of them was something similar to what you're describing.
    About 3 times over a 2 month period, for maybe 20-40 seconds, my eyesight would go very blurry. I figured out it was because one eye was tracking off all by itself. If I looked in the mirror I could see it and if I looked that direction with the other eye, I could see fine.
    I asked a neurologist about it. Without hesitation, he answered, "inflammation". Per other tests, it had nothing to do with a brain metastasis.

    Jim sorry to hear about your wife's new symptoms
    I am glad that she has tests ordered to evaluate the symptoms. I know how hard this has to be for both of you. Do you have a nutrition book to help you know how to increase calories and protein in the foods your wife will eat. The American Cancer Society, or the hospital education department, or doctor's office can give you information. You both remain in my prayers. In peace and caring.
