Could be: If you have had a change in vision in either eye it could indeed be optic neuritis. See an eye doctor immediately if you experience a decrease in vision in either eye. ...Read more

Eye maybe urine no: The eye may be an effect and you need to be checked by an ophthalmologist for glaucoma or other causes. The blood in the urine may be but need more information. If you have infection and corticosteroids can increase a urine infection risk. You need to discuss this with your physician to clarify this. ...Read more

I think I have ms fatigue that won't go away headaches dizziness always feel like im going to pass out eye pain and memory pains in arms and legs?

I think I have ms fatigue that won't go away headaches dizziness always feel like im going to pass out eye pain and memory pains in arms and legs?

Serious symptoms: I see you list adrenal fatigue and have had a lot of testing. Have you had a diagnosis of MS? It does sound like you have dysautonomia and should be evaluated for POTS. Treating postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome will help with chronic fatigue, dizziness, headaches and stomach aches. POTS is usually secondary to another problem and that, too needs investigation. Feel free to arrange a detailed consult with me to further explore your symptoms and narrow down the differential diagnosis. Use code XATXVC to schedule. ...Read more

Possible: But I would expect there to be more MRI abnormalities other than what you have mentioned? A lumbar puncture in order to run labs on your spinal fluid may be enlightening. ...Read more

I have MS. My eyes hurt. It hurts to keep them open. What is this???

See doctor: If the pain has been present for more than a few days or is getting worse, see an ophthalmologist. I suspect that your problem may be from dry eyes which worsened when exposed to dry or windy weather. Try some artificial teardrop in the meanwhile. ...Read more

Can you help? I woke up right eye blurry vision googled it . Scared of ms?

Explanations: Unilateral loss of vision could be due to optic neuritis, but more likely, there is another explanation. Could be due to localized eye problem, such as corneal abrasion, glaucoma, lens problems, uveitis, etc. Suggest you contact your doctor asap, so this is handled and reversed. Do not wait, as your visual health needs attention. However, unlikely that this is ms! ...Read more

What with eye nerv damaged by ms?

What with eye nerv damaged by ms?

CAN BE VARIABLE: Optic neuritis causing loss of vision can be the very initial manifestation of ms, and needs aggressive treatment to restore baseline function, and if MRI lesions are present, use of ms disease modifying therapy needs to be started. (earlier the better). Absence of treatment could be very precarious, and since complex, seek an experienced neurologist. Vit d supplements also important. ...Read more

Which type of symptoms with the eyes does someone with MS (multiple sclerosis) have?

Which type of symptoms with the eyes does someone with MS (multiple sclerosis) have?

Vision loss pain : Optic neuritis is inflammation of the optic nerves that presents with vision loss, pain with eye movement & "fading vision" when a person gets hot (like in the shower). It is most commonly associated with ms- multiple sclerosis. Ms also causes pars planitis -inflammation in the eye that presents with floaters and/or vision loss. A few of my patients have inflammation in the front of the eye too. ...Read more

Hi doctor! I have a very deep pain in my eyes what should I do? Is it related to my ms?

Could be: You see, MS patients experience 2-4 times the incidence of migraine events as compared to the general population. Of course, you could also have glaucoma, not related to MS. Have an eye doctor check this, and if not ocular, try a migraine preventative. ...Read more

For MS people why they having eye problem some days the vision gets better and sometimes gets worse? What cause the problem?

For MS people why they having eye problem some days the vision gets better and sometimes gets worse? What cause the problem?

COMPLEX ISSUES: Ms affects optic nerves directly but lesions can be present anywhere along the visual pathways, even in the brainstem, causing double vision, ocular imbalance, and incoordination. Prior areas of involvement can transiently worsen with hot surroundings, exercise, fatigue, infections, medication reactions, and true relapses. If you fluctuate frequently, you may be acquiring progressive ms, see doc. ...Read more

Had an MRI for suspected MS got a call the next day for an urgent MRI on eyes. Would they possibly have found something or are they just checking?

Had an MRI for suspected MS got a call the next day for an urgent MRI on eyes. Would they possibly have found something or are they just checking?

Impossible to tell: I would hope that your MRI did not show any major pathology; however, checking the area of the optic nerve is a quite through exam. I suggest waiting for the results or asking the ordering physician about the results so far. ...Read more

No: Dry eyes may cause this but you are a little young to have dry eyes. Nonetheless, try some artificial teardrop to see if they help. If not, see an eye doctor. ...Read more

My girlfriend has MS and every time she has anxiety she says that 1 of her eyes has a lot of pain. Is there a possibility that she lose her sight?

My girlfriend has MS and every time she has anxiety she says that 1 of her eyes has a lot of pain. Is there a possibility that she lose her sight?

Friendship helps!: MS, after years of excellent research effort, still is very frustrating for accurate prognosis. Truly, the life-course of people can vary totally. Symptoms can come — and go! It's different in each — and she'll do best w/ a MS expert doctor to guide her thru the ups and downs. Vision loss is rarely total, but is common and can be apart from eye pain.

I was diagnosis with MS this year. I have pain in right eye and vision is a little off. Now one pupil is larger. Is this from ms? Could I lose vision?

I was diagnosis with MS this year. I have pain in right eye and vision is a little off. Now one pupil is larger.  Is this from ms? Could I lose vision?

Yes and yes: Your symptoms and the anisocoria (unequal pupils) could be evidence of optic neuritis which is associated with ms. Let go of your computer mouse, pick up the phone and call your neurologist. (s)he will probably want to see you right away or refer you to an ophthalmologist. Don't procrastinate; you need to be in your doctor's office, not on line. ...Read more
