I haven't posted about
my eye in awhile just because there was nothing really new to say. I followed up with the good eye doc (who dx'd ON) last week and he referred me to an ON specialist. This doc was reported to be the best in the state and if availability says anything about
that, he must be! There is a standard waiting period for an appt of 3-4 months, however my eye doc made a call to him and was able to get me into see him yesterday! So kudos to my eye doc! This new doc was FANTASTIC!!! He is a Neuro Opthmalogist and did the most thorough exam of me yet. He seemed to zero in on some numbness, or less than usual sensitivity in my LEFT foot and some issue with the ability to 'hear' vibration in my right ear. He remarked that my VEP was suspect for ms two years ago, but otherwise didn't feel i had to worry about
ms right now! The ON isn't affecting my vision permanently, so he elected to not treat the ON and to only treat the pain. Thank goodness he's treating the pain! He gave me Indomethacin which is an anti-inflammatory to try for a month (morning and night) with a two week check in with him. If all is going well, i'll stay on it. If not he'll add something like the Maxalt back to the mix and try that. So even tho i'm still at 'wait and watch' i'm making strides in getting help!! I consider this a big breakthru and am very happy with the appt. When he was done he kissed his finger and put it over my eyebrow...i hope that has healing power!
