Hi to everyone - I would welcome any advice and support out there.
I suffered sudden blurred vision 10 days ago in one eye and referred by my optician to the hospital where i was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis. I am a 40 year old female and last year suffered 6 months of terrible cluster migraines for which i was treated with various medications but never offered a scan of any kind. the last few months have also brought bouts of fatigue where I have absolutely HAD to sleep - not just felt tired and fancied a nap but overwhelmingly HAD to there and then sleep and had instances where my right arm just didn’t feel connected to my body. I had just put these down to medication but am now worried these could be MS. I have an appt with a Neuro Opthamologist in a few weeks - can anyone tell me if they suffer similar symtoms and what they are likely to cover at this first appt?
My GP today looked at me and apologised as if i had a terminal illness today when I called in for a sicknote and explained what the hospital had diagnosed as far as the Optic Neuritis was concerned - are my symtoms really that bad and indicative of MS - sorry if I am being naive
