Eye problems - Episcleritis

Postby MacGyver » Thu Oct 21, 2004 5:53 am

have any of you ever experienced trouble with episcleritis? Episcleritis is a mild inflammatory condition of the outer layer of the sclera (white area of the eye), resulting in a red eye. Sometimes it is also associated with mild discomfort, pain etc. This is nothing serious at all, probably why it is not mentioned very often in litterature.

I read some years ago on a MS forum that this condition could be associated with MS, but I have never read anything about it in any scientific report or a like. So I'm curious :)

I can honestly say, I've never heard of the condition. And never associated with MS.

It doesn't sound like a neurlogical condition.

I have reoccurring episcleritis. I typically get it during the holidays or other high stress events, which leads me to believe that it could be realted to MS. It's often associated with other autoimmune disease, so seems likely that it would be associated with MS too. It's rare and really not a huge deal, aside from the fact that I have to keep answering "dude, what's wrong with your eye". It's not pretty!
