This is another ON query I suppose.
Can I ask if opticians diagnose ON or do I need a GP app ?
Amazingly after thirty odd years of MS, it is my first experience of eye problems so it may not even be ON.
I have been having pain, a dull bruised achy feeling for about two months along with blurred vision and focus issues but it has ramped up quite a bit now and the pain and blurring gets worse as the day wears on. By evening I am in more pain than I can push through.
It is definitely not like a migraine, I ,ve had those since a teen ( long time ago ) but it did start on my left eye which is the side I suffered a traumatic blow to my temple. Sometimes I get a burning sensation and sometimes even more weird is a sort of hot liquid " sloshing " sensation. My right eye is starting to be affected now.
Really would rather visit optician than GP as I have bothering my GP . I don’t have an MS nurse and haven’t seen a Neurologist in twenty years as they said they couldn’t offer me anything to help.
At that time I was RRMS but suspect I am now SPMS.
Any suggestions / advice appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
