Last summer (July) out of no where I became blurry in my left eye and was seeing double vision. I saw an Othomologist (sp?) and he confirmed optic Nerve damage. He sent me right away to see a Neruologist. The problem is I live in Canada and the wait times are LONG! I just had my Evoked potential at the end of November and my MRI a week ago.
The eye problems lasted about 5 weeks and the numbness I experianced after hot baths and showers about 8 weeks or so. It had been about 4 months from the time my eye problems ended until I had the evoked potental. Now the results came back "borderline" the neruo's exact words and the MRI clear.
My two questions........... 1. After waiting a long time to have an evoked can your eys get better and show a clear result? I see fine out of my left eye now but it still hurts when I am tired.
2. I don't believe I have any MS symptoms (by what I can remember) before the Optic Nerve damage so can an MRI be clear if it is your first attack?
Not to sure what to do from here......I guess just sit and wait? I was very very relieved to hear the great results but my symptoms matched to a T. Numbness in my left arm and leg all the time but got worse after showers/baths, extreme fatigue and gosh I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo moody those 8 weeks it was unbelieveable. Like I said above they lasted about 8 weeks and then just went away.
Any help at all would be great.
All of you are inspirations and wish you luck.
