Hi All,
I am having another bout of pain behind my left eye when I move it and if I press on it.  I have also had a headache that will not go away across my forehead.  It's almost a tight sensation or kind of numb but not.  This is my 3rd time to have this since Jan.  My neuro wasn't too sure if I had optic neuritis, he said it usually has vision loss with it, my vision is just slightly not right.  No color loss. My visual evoked potentials were normal, or as he said better than he thought (which I assume means normal).  I did read an article that ON can be just pain with no vision loss, has anyone else had this?
Also, while I was sitting in my recliner last night I noticed the backs of my thighs have very little sensation in spots. I can pinch (hard) and do not feel the sharpness of my pinch.  I don't know how long they have been like this.  The top of my right foot and the back of my right hand get this loss of sensation quite frequently.
I feel like I am continuing to fall apart. I just want to not have any new or worstening of symptoms and deal with the ones I have.

Hey Michelle

I'm sorry...yet more troubling and painful things to deal with. I HAVE read someplace that ON can be w/o vision loss as well. I know the pain u speak of and i too thought it was ON, but that's when i was told i had the migraines. Any chance it could be that for u as well? I didn't have pain in the forehead too tho. I think u should call u'r doc and at least let him know all this. Maybe he'll say it's nothing to worry about and tell u what to take/do, but i suspect he'll want to see u.

When i FIRST started to have numbness i could pinch my forearms and not feel it...tho i was scared and didn't pinch as hard as i could. I've not had it like that since the very beginning tho. I hope it will all just go away, but to be safe i'd call the doc. There's too much going on all at once and seemingly new or worse at least. Take really good care friend and i'll be praying for u.
