i have just been diagnosed with optic neuritis. The sight in my right eye went from 20/20 to virtually nothing within 2 days. Whilst gradually improving, 6 weeks on, my vision has still not fully returned. This came out of the blue, and prior to this I have always enjoyed good health.
I wanted to find out about other people’s experience of recovery from neuritis. I have a couple of other strange things happening… Constant pins and needles in one foot, and most annoyingly, a feeling of being ‘squeezed’ in the left hand side of my head all the time. Has anyone else experienced this? Does it go away?
An MRI showed ’ more unidentified bright objects’ (what the neurologist called them), than expected for my age, with a pattern which may or may not be linked with MS, but, of course, there is no diagnosis.
This has all been a bit of a shock, and I’m struggling with what’s happened.
Any shared experience would be good to hear. Good or bad… I just want to have some idea of what to expect.
