Just been diagnosed after experiencing the worst Optic Neuritis over the last few days. I can’t be treated with steroids as it would affect my electrolytes & then my heart condition. I’m really scared as I’ve got bad damage in my right eye already from previous attacks (I now know the symptoms!) & it’s affected my left eye as well a bit with loss of depth perception & right field vision.
I’m really scared at the moment about loosing my vision in the future. I know so little about Optic Neuritis & don’t know how to cope with the pain & visual problems or the fear of permanently loosing my sight. These are the worst eye symptoms I’ve ever had.
I’d really appreciate any words of support.
