Am relapsing at the moment with the lovely optic neuritis. Can’t get IV steroids as I’ve had two doses since December.
It’s not too bad, just in one eye. Increased my screen size in work and am just getting on with it.
My question is this…the last day or two I’ve been getting a pain above my eyebrow. I know it’s the ON as I had the same pain last time I had ON (same eye too). Is it worth taking pain killers like paracetemol? Any point?
I don’t have any other neuro pain so I don’t have neurological pain killers either. I’m not really one for taking meds but when I’m in work the pain is bothersome but not really bad enough to send me to the GP.
Is there any point in taking some Nurofen or something? Or will it not have any effect?
