It sounds like you have a very bad case of PTC! I think you definatley SHOULD be going to the doctor regularly. This condition can change and progress very quickly and it is critical that a doctor is monitoring your progress, especially if you are stil having such bad symptoms. Doing a regular Visual Field test is very important because you can be losing vision and not even know it...and depening on how long it can be permanent. I would definatly call your doctor and follow up! Good luck!
