So I had ON in Feb. The doc said the pain should be gone w/in 12 weeks. Well here we are 12 weeks later and i still feel like I have brain freeze behind my left eye.
I'm just wondering if those of you who have had ON did you have long lasting pain?  Any  info would be great!
Thanks
Theresa

Theresa,
 
I am so sorry you are still having pain. I have never had ON so I can't answer your question.  I just wanted to offer some support.  Talk to that doctor.  I hope you are feeling better soon.  Take care.

Hey,
I also had ON in Feb. I got into the hospital and started on the Steroids. I had that horrible pain. The inflammation is what was causing the pain in my eye. After about a week or two I was almost fine. I still don't have all of my vision back though. The dr. says I probably won't. I hope this helps.

It may take awhile for the pain to go.  I have had about 4 bouts of ON.  My vision has some damage, more in my right eye then left, but I am now colour blind too.

that was the first symptom of MS i had i took a little over 6 weeks to go away on its own the second relapse I had was again ON but this time way worse and the doc put me on steroids to help it go away faster. if it is going on this long i would go back to the dr or even the ER thats how i got the ball rolling the second time
