As some may know I am still undiagnosed with either MS or Lyme after many, many tests and doctors… Last week I was diagnosed with optic neuritis. The doc put me on 3 days of prednisone IV drip and then a week or oral tablets to wean off. They did not make me better and they did not make me worse. I would say it was a wash. The vision is slightly improved but the rest of my symptoms are the same. I am still waiting on IgeneX results which will be about another week. At this point I think I’m going to go down to the University for lack of any other options. I saw 2 neurologists and a supposed LLMD and already..
I was under the impression that taking the steroids might give me an idea if it was Lyme or not because if it was Lyme and I suppressed my immune system the Lyme would kick into high gear during that time. I don’t feel like I got any worse or any better so I’m not sure what to take away from this experience.
Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated! (While I can still see to read the responses.) L
