Poor handwriting: It sounds like you tried to decipher a doctor's handwriting - a very difficult feat! cavum septum pellucidum is a space near the middle of the brain that is present in all infants and usually closes up. About 15% of adults can still have it and it is completely normal. This could be an inner ear issue or even a sinus infection. You should see your doctor - he/she may even recommend a spinal tap.

Pupil abormality: "escapism of your left pupil" is not very descriptive. If you are having pupillary problems it is best to see an ophthalmologist as this can be an indicator of more severe disease.
