Your actual eyeball has lowered?? Or does it just "seem" like it's lowered (in that your vision seems lower on that side?) If the actual eyeball has lowered -- this doesn't sound much to me like an MS problem...but certainly you need to be to an opthamologist and maybe get a brain scan to see what's going on inside!
I HAVE had periods when one eye doesn't "track" with the other, or the eyes jump around, affecting my vision. And of course during episodes of optic neuritis, I've lost color vision in one eye. And there are periods when my vision is very fuzzy, or blurry. MS can affect your vision in lots of ways...but actually physically lowering your eyeball..that sounds like something much more serious going on, if that really is what is happening!
Many with MS have problems with their eyes. It's not something that all with ms have, but it's definitely an ms symptom. I"ve included a link to the National MS Society discussing visual disturbances. I hope this helps explain things. I agree with Uppity on the lowered eyeball. U should really be seen by a specialist.
Eye problems....from what I have read and researched, it appears that one of the first places MS attaches is the optical nerves, however with MS, everyone is so different, and no two people are the same.
Four years ago, I had double vision out of my left eye. I went to a specialist, who advised that I had suffered some kind of nerve damage.....well I guess I did, called MS. That was the very first sign that I can really remember, and it went away in about two years. Did not get another symptom for 2 years, where again the same eye was not tracking correctly, and I noticed the vision out of this eye was dimmer than the right eye. Again after a period of time, it went away too, however still notice that it is quite light sensative.
I think back now and wish that the eye specialist would have followed thru with this a bit more then he did. It might have been able to diagnose something then. Over the last two years, when it came back again - gees let me see - eye problems, inner ear problems, low blood sugar problems, numbness and quite a bit of pain in my right temple that went right down to my right ear, etc.etc. All of the above came, and then went. And then the numb fingers, and then finally that electric shock feeling when I bend my head forward. MRI (again) however this time, lesions were noted....
It was a very long two years, and at one point - the doctor said to me "I dont know what is wrong with you" - not a comfortable position to be in.
Try and stay cool..I'm sure the heat & stress aggravate your symptoms...I know what your saying every thing with this illness moves very slow........We had many appointments that they say everythings great ..next week will be havoc.Saw the MS proffessor @ U of M..slight tingling problem,(sons regular appointment) the next week my son had a severe relaspe.Go fiqure.Hes still mending ...but hes getting better,,,.very slow.....Nothing makes sense with this illness, thats for sure.I'm your age,dealing with this second hand, but watching my son @ 30 suffer-is tough..its nice to visit here to vent alittle.Deb
What do you mean you "have entered the game". I am confused. Did you get diagnosed???
Love and prayers,
