Hi there,
 
I've been feeling really nauseas for the past few days.......but no vomitting or other sort of tummy upset.  I know that people with MS get nausea with vertigo etc.....but I haven't had any sort of dizziness.  At first I just thought I may have a bug, but now I am getting bad pain behind one eye whenever I move it...........but no visual disturbances???
 
Can MS cause nausea without dizziness?
Can Optic Neutitis cause eye pain without visual symptoms?
 
Thanks for any input you may have!

Hi~

I am pretty new to all  of this MS stuff myself, just being diagnosed this year.  BUT..that said, back in April of this year..I have severe eye pain on movement of my left eye..it started out with blurry vision ( I thought I needed new glasses). I went to an optomitrist who ordered a MRI because I also lost some vision when he found on a field vision test, that I had also lost some vision in that eye. Upon examination ( and shown on the MRI) he found my Optic nerve to be swollen and said I had ON (Optic Neuritis).

I was not having any vertigo but had been feeling extermly tired even before all this happened and was frequently falling due to problems with balance ( especially when I was tired) SO..........He sent me to a Neurologist who  ( long story short) sent me to a MS Neurologist who then ordered more tests, and came up with my diagnosis in August of this year of MS.

What I am learning is that MS is a very individualized disease and presents itself in too many ways to discribe. It would be worth your time to get to the Doctor and get it checked out and get another opinion if your not satisfied with your Docs answer. Also contact your local MS Society and ask for literature about MS. They offered me recently to sign up for their 6 week instructions ( you get in the mail) called 'Knowledge is Power'. I recently got the first study and it is LOADED with info about MS and also came with a DVD. There was no charge to me at all for this.

Good luck. You will find lots of encouragement in here, we have great moderators and many great members who can better advise you than me. Your post just caught my eye because of the 'eye pain'...it just took me down memory lane. I pray you don't have MS, but as I said, we are all here to help you and support you...even if ya don't! Hugs~Katie ( sorry this is so long)

O Kas!!!

I'm so sorry!!! My sweet friend, get to an eye doc and get checked just to be safe, ok? I get that eye pain on movement and it's NO FUN! My docs have been wishy washy..."ON...Migraines...we don't know what the heck it is!" Either way tho, i'm at least getting some pain relief. Yes, u can have parts and pieces of the symptoms without having all the symptoms....just like with ms. Just to be safe have that eye checked, ok? See an Opthmalogist tho....not just an ordinary 'eye doc'. Any doc can see the optic nerve, but u'r better situatated with an Opthmalogist. In the meantime, maybe call u'r pcp about some nausea med. There is no reason to suffer if u don't have to. Take care friend and please come back and let us know how u'r doing and how this is treated.

Kas,

My story is almost identical to Katie's, my ON is in my right eye. I also thought something was wrong with my prescription. Went to get that checked out and they told me I had a large growth behind my eye and it could possibly be a tumor. Pretty scary.

Anyways, my vision from this has been up and down. Never back to normal. I get nausea quite frequently. My whole take on it is that it's from one eye working harder than the bad eye. I get that way when I drive (which is seldom) or even when I'm riding in a car. There's nothing I can do about it either, closing my eye's only makes it better.

I also get dizzy at time's to, just like Katie said, MS is very different for everyone, but I often hear some real close similarities from other people.

Good luck and get it checked out ASAP.

Hi Kas,

 

It’s great to see you back posting, but I’m so sorry it’s due to these symptoms. Ugh, nausea is the worst. I get it from vertigo, and it is often associated with eye issues for me, although rarely pain. I’ve never had ON, but like the others said I hope you get this checked out, and if nothing else are able to get some meds to help with the pain and nausea. I’m not sure what they stock there, but over the counter meds sold for sea sickness, like meclizine, can help some with nausea. I hope you are feeling much better today! Please do come back and let us know.

Hi guys,

thank you so much for the great support and advice. I am still feeling the nausea and pain today.....but not quite as bad....so fingers crossed that it's all going to go away!!! I have booked in to see the doc though.....even if only to get it documented.

Thanks again, you guys are awesome!

I have this too, actually its been awful this week. It feels like pressure in my eye-like how it felt when I had lasik. I have not been dx, however, I have had a battery of other problems. I have had shooting/pulsating pains in my body daily-mainly ankles, toes, fingers, spine, extreme joint cracking and now all over muscle twitches that are non stop.

I have had boat loads of blood work, nerve test and recently an MRI of head, lower and mid spine (NO contracst)...1.5 yrs ago I had a MRI w contrast for shooting head pains-I was fine.

Any thoughts on if you feel this is MS related?

Hi King,

 

I’m sorry, I’m not sure I understand your question…are you asking if the symptoms you listed below could be related to MS? MS has a variety of signs and symptoms, and we certainly cannot diagnose you or tell you whether or not you have MS on this board. However, what you describe does not sound like “classic” MS issues. The fact that your recent MRIs were clear is also a very encouraging sign against having MS, but you would need your doctor to tell you that as I am certainly not qualified to do so. I know it is very frustrating to be sick and without answers, and I wish you the best of luck in your search for diagnosis. In the meantime, your doc may be able to help treat some of your symptoms, so you are a little less uncomfortable.

Just an update......my eye pain completely went away after a couple of days....yay!!!

And the nausea has also gone, I think it must have been a bug. Isn't it crazy how every little thing makes you worry that a relapse is imminent.........I guess that's just part of the fun!

Thanks for all of your support.

KAS

P.S.

King:

I get the muscle twitches that you mentioned, and shooting pains.....but not the joint issues. The muscle twitches are very bizare....people who see them really freak....bit of a party trick! I hope you get some answers soon, nothing worse than not knowing!
