Please can someone offer some advice with my eye sight?
I was diagnosed in Nov 2014 following an MRI after problems with my left leg then my left arm.
I was given steroids in Dec and they brought back the feeling in my arm but I thought I had some side effects from the steroids - dizziness and difficulty focussing my eyes and bladder problems.
Last week the eye problem started again and now I have worked out that they were not side effects from the steroids at all in December and they were even more MS symptoms!!! Doh!
Feel really stupid and I am scared that my eye sight is affected by the MS as I thought it was the steroids. I am a freelance graphic/web designer and having a left leg and arm that didn’t work was manageable but losing my eye sight is horrific.
So the problem started when I awoke last Friday and I could not focus my eyes together in my peripheral vision. When I looked ahead it was OK or looking with one eye only was ok in my peripheral vision. So my actual eyesight is OK and it is the focus on the edges that does not work.
I have had tinnitus since April and my neurologist said I have lesions located where my hearing would be affected - great! Is that the same location as for the eyes?
The area in the centre that is focussed is changing and reducing so I am hoping someone can advise me on what the likely outcome will be and whether there is any treatment for this?
