I’m having a horrible time at the moment. My plans to get back to work have stopped because last week I started getting g eye pain. I had an appointment for bloods with ms nurse on Friday anyway. As she thought it was optic neuritis, she said she’d email my consultant. So I haven’t seen anybody or had my eye examined so I thought I would ask about symtoms of optic neuritis. Mine started with heavy sinus type pain thne i got a sort cramping pain in my eye socket, when I move my eye, it feels like it’s wrenching a rope- a pulling sensation. and I get agonising nerve pain across my scalp and right down my face. My eyes are very sensitive to light and causes the pain. Eye patch doesn’t work because light in the good eye causes pain. In the sunshine I’m blinded by pain and my eyes are watering profusely. But it also hurts to close my eyes and that pulling sensation is worse. I can’t sleep as I woken by a pulsing pain like someone poking me in the eye repeatedly. Pain gets bad enough to make me nauseaus I can’t touch my eye it feels enormous but doesn’t look swollen. I’m taking codiene but stopped yesterday as it might be making headaches worse.my vision in normally very good but now I have a little blurring in centre of left vision and some blurring in periphery. Does this sound like anyone else’s experience and does this mean I’m having a relapse? I’m going to see my optomertrist again privately tomorrow. I don’t know what else to do! I have had to give up driving of course so ill have to try and catch a bus hope it’s not sunny tomorrow!
Thanks for reading this.
