I have not been diagnosed with MS but I want to ask you a question. After a few eye episodes my optometrist said that the pain when moving my eyes was probably just a nerve irritation and my eyelids spasms are due to fatigue. When I asked about MS he said that I was past the standard age of 35. I just turned 37 in the end of January. What do you think?
MS most usually
occurs between the ages of 20 - 45...but can (and does) occur earlier and later. And poeple diagnosed later than 45 or so often discover that a lot of things that they just ignored earlier in their health history may well have been related to having MS. At 37 you're well within the window of "normal times" when MS might be diagnosed.
You say you saw an "optometrist". That's like saying, "I saw a herbologist who diagnosed my MS". If indeed you're having eye problems you need to see an OPTHAMOLOGIST who can really diagnose eye ailments, whether that's MS or something else. Optic neuritis can be readily seen even by an optometrist (or a family physican or other doctor, for that matter).
But given your age and eye problems, I really encourage you to go to an OPTHAMOLOGIST -- a physician with advanced training in eye DISEASE (not just mechanical malfunction, which is the training of an optometrist) to see what might be going on.
