Hi all, I was diagnosed with optic neuritis in March, got steroids, it got worse a few days then it was near back till 100% from end March onwards.
However since the beginning of this month it’s worsened again by the day and it’s constant - patchy vision, floaters, light thingies. I was always under impression once you cooled down that the symptoms should calm themselves. I can’t do any more to keep cool than I’m doing!
Rang MS Nurse other week she said it’ll just be heat. Saw eye doc he couldn’t have cared less to be honest and said the nerves weren’t inflamed (I never got my really nice usual guy and this crabbit guy missed my nerve being inflamed in first instance early March). So if nothing inflamed then why on earth do I have such severe symptoms?
Is it just because it’s still relatively new that the heat will be making it flare up and maybe by autumn it’ll calm itself?
Also - does computer work do optic neuritis any harm? As in could it be my fault it’s got worse again? I work part-time as a graphic designer but because I’m freelance I only had one week off (when I had the steroids).
Going to ring MS Nurse tomorrow again. Should I or can I ring eye clinic back and ask for my usual wee chappie? (I love him, hes like Mrs Brown without the skirt on!)
I just thought it got better and that was me, confused as to why it’s turned bad again.
I hope you’re all not too bad in this weather. Take care folks xx
