I have been having eye jumping in my left eye. I feel like my eyeball jumps. I also have MS and optic nuertis.?

Most likely stress! Most likely stress related. Does not sound like symptoms related to your or any medical condition. Except possilby a response to dry eyes. Try artificial tears. If no improvement seek medical examination.
?nystagmus. I gather you have confirmed MS diagnosis, and are currently pregnant. You could be experiencing a relapse, which would need to be treated. If you are in last trimester, could use steroids or Acthar, but earlier, may be safest with IVIG. Have your neurologist examine and advise approaches.
Eye problems. With your history of MS & optic neuritis, best for you to see your neurologist &/or ophthalmologist. New symptoms may suggest a flare in your disease that needs to be addressed.

Anti-freeze . Anti-freeze is an irritant to the eyes and surrounding tissues. Anti-freeze is typically made up of ethylene glycol, which is minimally irritating to the eyes. There is no evidence to indicate that ethylene glycol is absorbed through the skin in quantities sufficient to cause systemic injury. After exposure to the eyes, flush with clean water for 10-15 minutes and seek the attention of your ophthalmologist, eye physician & surgeon. Based on what I have read, i think your uveitis and optic neuritis are likely unrelated to being splashed with anti-freeze. Read more...

Optic Neuritis. Optic neuritis is a condition which is caused by an autoimmune injury to the optic nerve. This produces loss of the fatty insulation ("myelin") around the nerve which makes the nerve not function well. Patients have vision changes (esp. loss of color and brightness sensation), a change in pupil function, and frequently pain with eye movement. MS is usually diagnosed by MRI or a spinal tap.

2 separate category. Optic neuritis would be classified as a relapse, and is best treated with EITHER intravenous Methylprednisolone or ACTHAR.
