Hi. I'm new here....

I just got diagnosed two weeks ago and haven't started any medication yet. I have had optic neuritis (visible on MRI) for 3 weeks now. I did five days of solu-medrol which in finished 4 days ago. My eyes are still not right. I'm supposed to start a new job in 11 days and I'm worried about how I'll be feeling by then.

Can anyone share their experiences with me about how long your flare was and what I can expect? I just moved states and my first neurologist wasn't very helpful with sharing what my prognosis could be.

Thanks.

I've had diplopia and nystagmus for over 2 years now.  The diplopia can be countered with glasses but nothing can be done for the nystagmus.  Both issues stemmed for a relapse in Mar 2011 (large lesion on the brainstem).  My optical nerves are fine...but you can still have vision problems from lesions elsewhere.  My vision did get better after about two months, but never went away completely.
