Thanks for you replys. I sure hope I am posting in the right area. Trying to get used to the board.
I was not treated for the loss of vision. It happened while I was in the tub reading one night. I was under the impression I had a sinus infection and thought it was part of it. I wasn't thinking anything at this point, didn't know about ON and thought it was just one of those weird things. By the time I got to a neuro, it was 6 months and the eyesight was fine. I actually didn't even say anything until we went through a list of items and I said, oh yeah, I had that. By the time she sent me to a opthoneuro, and a head MRI, there was nothing there.
I had a full MRI last year, full spine and head. Next month, I will have a head and neck. The Doc laid out a plan for me. If this comes back negative, then he will have me do a spinal and go to UCLA for a battery of tests.
I have two boys and a hubby and I hate that I have to take naps on the weekend or can't walk to dogs or go hiking whenever I want to. It has to be a good day. Heck, there are days I can't wear heels to work. I am a control freak and the idea that something can have an effect on my life and my families lives without my consent ticks me off.
The worst thing for me is the slurring speech and the forgetting. Last weekend I was rinsing something out in the sink and just forgot I had the water on. Flooded the bathroom a little, but caught it before major damage. That kind of stuff makes me nuts!!
I am reading your journal, one eye and some things sound so familar that it's scary.
I am scared of both outcomes next month. Positive MRI = MS or Negative = more tests and uncertainty, but no MS. Can't win
Thanks again you guys.
