Quick rundown. I'm 30 and 3 weeks ago I did some hard excercises (pushups, situps, sprints) at night. The next morning I could not for the life of me get my eyes to focus. Particularly the left eye. Everything was a haze/blur for a few days and useless working on computers 8 hours a day. Eventually after hours I went to the ER breathing like a madman (i though maybe because my eyes wouldnt focus so my body was freaking out. They found my BP was high 170/100. Did follow up with optometrist and doc. Optometrist said they didnt notice anything except slight astigmatism in left eye and issued me some glasses. Doc just said to eat healthy and cut back on salt.

So fast forward another week and seemed to catch the seasonal flu. Had a fever and uncontrollable chills for those 2 days. After the fever was gone I noticed a slight ringing in my right ear since then. These whole 3 weeks my eyes have been slightly out of focus. To the point where I cant even focus at my computer screen or read a book. I've tried the glasses and they help, but I still can't focus on minor details. Tried watching a movie at the theatre and noticed it was hard to focus on the whole screen. Maybe I'm just overthinking this but does any of this seem like symptoms of MS. My mom was diagnosed with it a few years ago. Thank you for reading.

You have a legitimate concern here. You need to see a neurologist as soon as possible. An optometrist can only help with glasses. You may have optic neuritis. You need an MRI to determine this. Sometimes an ophthalmologist can see damage to your optic nerve, but only certain parts are visible.

Please do not delay on this. Find a neurologist who has plenty of MS experience.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.
