Ok just venting, lol. But seriously, my eyes have some diplopia going on and they are pointing in very odd directions. So I look like I have lizard eyes... =P
I am getting married in 5 days, I hope it doesn't get worse =/ But what can u do??? Not enough time for an IV steriod boost as a quick fix, maybe that is good...
Ok that is all. Well not really...

Hi Sandy...Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!  I don't have any advice for your eye troubles, I'm sorry!  I do pray it will reslove and you will not have to worry with it on your special day.  Pehaps you should call your doc and explain to him what is going on, maybe they can do something for you.
Take care.  Many happy years to come for you and yours!

Thanks for ur support! Starting to get a little nervous about the wedding, lol, but my VERY soon to be husband is a good man and I do pray for many good years to come!
I know it is said that for a symptom to be MS related it should last longer then 24 hours, but I thought that was for a relapse. My eyes have self resolved, YAY, in less then 24 hours... I have been noticing this with several other MS symtoms I have as well. I can have pains of various sorts, resolve in less then 24  hours, cognitive issues that self resolve relatively quickly, walking and balance issues as well. I have noticed this a lot in the last few months. The symptoms self resolve fairly quickly, but will return within a week or two. It seems like everyday I have something "new" with some days worse then others.
Now my question: Why can I have MS symtoms reslove in short order?
Don't get me wrong, the issues don't go away completely (I am pretty sure???), I just don't notice them all the time. Thinking of the worst possible case senerio in my head, I am wondering if I have a more aggressive form then RRMS. I know I am not too bad because I was diagnosed over 2 years ago when I was 23. I am still working (part=time), going to school, walking, talking and functioning so that most people dont' even know I have MS.
How can I feel too terrible, and look so "good"? ...and... Do I have a bad atitude about the whole MS thing because I am constanly reminded that I am "defective", or am I more "defective" becuase of my bad attitude towards MS? I wonder if there are those that are diagnosed that may have the same disposition as myself, but are able to "forget" (or move on) about their MS, because they don't have the constant reminders.
Are there people out there that have MS and don't hurt on a daily basis? Or Don't shake like a person on drugs, Or dont' worry about their bowel function, or the weather, or the walk in the grocery store, or their own voice when speaking because they may say something that doesn't make sense... Before I was diagnosed, it wasn't so bad...
OK I am filled the questions that MS is noted to cause. I realize there are no true answers, but diffrent perspectives do help.
Thanks for all ur support!
