Hi, does anyone have any experience with either uveitis or optic neuritis.
I've been having eye symptoms for the last year, but it keeps getting worse and has gotten really bad over the past few weeks.
My symptoms are:
episodes of mild color vision loss lasting no longer than an hour
visual snow, scotomas (floating greyish spots in my field of vision), colorful spots, blobs and zigzags in my field of vision, floaters
seeing flashes of light in the corner of my eyes
mild eye pain
twitching in eyelid
involuntary eye movements
feeling like I'm starting to go blind
I don't have any redness or severe pain in my eyes, and I haven't had any episodes where I couldn't see at all. I'm having a harder time reading things. I've never had eye problems before, and my vision used to be almost perfect. My rheumatologist is worried that I could have uveitis, but wasn't sure how to diagnose it, and didn't seem to know much about
optic neuritis. I'm worried because my symptoms have gotten a lot worse really quickly and I'm scared that I could go blind. I'm having other symptoms of MS and other inflammatory diseases, so I'm really on edge and unsure what to expect.
