I think i’m having my first relapse since I was diagnosed just over a year ago. On Thursday I had noticed my eye had started hurting when doing certain movements while I was at work. I had just put this down to maybe being tired as I haven’t been sleeping well lately.
Then on Friday I kept thinking theres something wrong with my vision… couldn’t quite put my finger on it… but I just knew and the eye was still hurting with the movements.
Yesterday confirmed my fears… there was a definite (i’m not sure how to describe it) but change in my vision… and it felt like my vision was fluctuating in how it blurs/closes in. I’m really not sure how to describe it.
When I was diagnosed my left eye had stopped moving to the left… so it was a very clear indication that ‘this was a relapse’. However this time it is my right eye and it doesn’t feel as easy to be sure… I guess this is all still new for me. I still have the eye pain when looking in certain directions or a quick change in movement, and the ‘blurriness’ still feels like it’s fluctuating.
I’m not sure what to do next. Do I need to contact my nurse? Also do I need to go to the GP, will I need steroids? Or is it not severe enough and do I just note it down for the next time I see my neuro/nurse?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
