Hi… I am undiagnosed currently but had bad myelitis for 8 years with a large patch of inflammation in my cervical spine. In May this year I had an a problem with blurring eyes which was a new thing for me. I was immediately referred to the emergency eye clinic where they diagnosed ON. The same thing has happened again and I went back to the eye clinic yesterday and they confirmed that even though they cant see any swelling of my optic nerve that it is another ON attack. I had extensive mri scans a few weeks ago which showed no inflammation in my optic nerve. I am getting the results of mri, evoked potentials, lumbar puncture and blood tests in the next 10 days.
This is doing my head in. Went to bed last night … vision massively improved. Got up to go to work… Cant focus again. Why!!!I it doesn’t make sense. This has been happening on and off for over a week now. You would expect the vision to be good in the morning after a good nights sleep… and then deteriorate as the day progresses when you get more tired. But it is the opposite for me! Really worried about losing my job nowand whether I need to tell them about my possible MS. Any help gratefully received.
