Thanks so much for the support & hugs! It helps more that you know! You all make me feel so loved! I'm really just exhausted. I saw the neuro-ophthalmologist today. He agreed with everything my primary ophthalmologist had to say, except he did say that he doesn't think that this is degenerative, at least not as of yet. He definitely thinks that there is something bad going on with my brain, but as of now said that I shouldn't be worried about
the progression of this until we know what it is. That was definitely a relief, but I'm still really scared, because this is still sounding like something pretty bad w/ my brain. I actually don't trust this guy all that much though, just because of how he has treated me in the past & his attitude (or should I say ego?!). It sounds like we are going to get a spinal tap for sure after I see my neurologist next week.
Yes, I did see your post, I've just been too emotionally & physically tired to write much. Thanks for the heads up about
MS! MS is actually quite high up on the list of possibilities & has been so for the last several months. I actually do have all of the ocular symptoms of MS, but my last MRI (January) didn't show any brain lesions & as far as I know, I still don't have any neurological symptoms, other than my eyes (we'll find out for sure next week). It's definitely something that I'm worried about
, but at the same time, I'd almost be happy to know what this is. The spinal tap that we are going to do should be able to give us more information about
the possibility of MS, as well as a few other things. When the doc was dictating his note today, he kept referring to me as a "diagnostic mystery." Tell me something I don't already know!
