I have been looking on here for the last couple of weeks and have finallly decided to join.
I am a 42 year old male. My problems started in 2009 when i had problems with my left eye, I had poor vision for several weeks. I was treated for an eye infection at the time and was eventually referered to an eye specialist. I was told that i had a pale optic nerve and if i had a repeat of the symptoms to get refered back.
Over the last few years i have always had problems with my vision but just tried to live with it. At the back end of last year my optician refered me back to a eye specialist. The specialis sent me for a mri scan. I had the scan at the end of December.Since the middle of December i have been suffering from a lot of pins and needles. Over the last few weeks i have been suffering with really heavy,numb legs espically my left leg. My eye specialist refered me onto the neurologist.
I had my appointment two weeks ago with my neurologist and he said that i had a number of brain lessons and said that my optic nerve was inflammed when i had the mri scan. He said that in his oppinion i have benign ms. And that it all started in 2009. He said that he will monitor me as he wouldn’t recommend any dmd drugs at the momment because of the side effects.He recommended that i take vitamin D and also that my son’s should also take the vitamin D
At the moment i am really struggling with my legs as they are always feeling heavy and ache with pins and needles. I had a follow up appointment with my ms nurse the other day and she said she would ask the consultant about some medication to help with the feelings i am experincing with my legs.
Any advice would be appreciated.
