Hi all. Sorry if I double posted, I can’t find my first post.
so about me. I’m Sandra and I am 29. I was recently diagnosed with optic neuritis. So its pretty standard to get tested for ms. I knew that MS can cause ON, but I figured let them do the tests. My brain MRI scan came back with no abnormalities and before I was discharged from hospital after doing a stint of steroids for the ON the nurse said my spinal (which was done on the day of my discharge) came back with nothing untoward. I’m guessing I’d have been kept in to discuss it further if it showed lesions. But my GP read a letter from the omphmaology department saying I have bilateral pappilodema
that’s caused the optic swelling. But that they are working towards a diagnosis of MS. No one has said this to me. So I have confusion too.
ive got myself worked up with worry as I’m alone with 3 kids (one being autistic) and I don’t have much in way of emotional support as my parents are relocating and I’m going through a divorce. I am in a pretty miserable so was hoping for some friendly support and a virtual hug x
