I just wanted to ask a few questions if possible as everyone knows what they are talking about here which is a welcome change from seeing my doctor. i am currently undergoing tests (Neurologists appt next Thursday) and have been to an Ophthalmologist as well regarding what I think was an attack of Optic Neuritis that lasted around 6 weeks (the pain behind my eye and blind spots have all but gone but my right eye remains blurry and washed out to colours but i can cope with that). When i saw the Opthalmologist he dilated my pupils and did looked into my eyes with some sort of machine.
I asked him what was wrong and he just replied with “let’s just wait until you see another specialist” and he told his assistant to book me a new appointment ASAP. I have received the appointment which are in late September (visual field test) and early October (appt with specialist). I then received a letter yesterday from my doctors surgery to make an appointment with my doctor at my earliest possible convenience on the instruction of my ophthalmologist.
I called the doctors and they wouldn’t tell me anything and earliest appt i can get is Tuesday next week so i am a bit worried. Is this normal procedure or does it seem a little odd?
Also i seem to have developed L’hermittes sign when i bend my head forward but also get similar electric zap feelings if i turn m,y head to the side sometimes. It’s all very odd.
Sorry for the rambling message and hope it makes some sense.
