How Long Should Neuritis Last
How long does optic neuritis last when there is no underlying cause? Is two weeks after diagnoses too late to start steroids?
Get treated: There is ALWAYS a cause for optic neuritis, and it should be treated. Best approach is to use intravenous methylprednisolone, or intramuscular ACTHAR. But if not treated, your outcome is likely permanent loss of vision. See ophthalmologist or neurologist and get this addressed ASAP ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I need to know what is vestibular neuritis and how long does it take to fully recover from the symptoms?
Vestibular neuritis: Acutely, vestibular neuritis is usually treated symptomatically, meaning that medications are given for nausea and to reduce dizziness. When a herpes virus infection is strongly suspected, an antiviral medication can be used. When a circulation disturbance is suspected, an agent that reduces the likelihood of stroke may be used.

I had Scleritis and Keratitis for 6 months last year and was treated. Now I may have Optic Neuritis and an MRI is scheduled. What can cause all 3?
Common Dz for all 3?: There is no one single disease process that links all 3 of those problems together under one roof that I'm aware of. Scleritis and keratitis....sure, why not. But ON is a totally different entity and is really the sine qua non for demyelinating disorders such as MS and other problems; Devic's Disease, etc. Good luck. ...Read more
I had vestibular neuritis last year, it went away and now it's mildly back. Tests showed vestibular weakness, no hearing loss. Menieres disease maybe?
Well..maybe.: For diagnosis and treatment. the first step would be looking at other nerve irritatnts (lyme, alcohol, diabetes, MS, even syphillis) Then, if no other cause is found, it fits with meniere's but regardless the right treatment would be a damper down of nerves (anti-epileptic drugs, anti-arrhythmics, perhaps sedatives ones). ...Read more
