Anxiety & multiple sclerosis sure do have the same symptoms. How do you tell the difference? Doc won't test for ms, even though twitching & eye problem.

MS vs anxiety. Can be tricky in some cases, but usually anxiety has "extra" symptoms and signs which are unlikely to be caused by MS. Also signs of anxiety may be fleeting. Eye twitching alone is not likely to be MS. I do not know what your eye symptoms are, but a dilated eye exam can rule out involvement of the optic nerve which is a key finding for MS. Read more...
NOT correct. There is a world of difference between anxiety problems and multiple sclerosis. Your generic description of "twitching and eye problem" would not cause me to consider MS.

You bet. MS commonly affects the eyes, and if you have loss of vision, double vision, any abnormal eye movements, it is possible that MS is the cause. But other eye events can co-exist, so see an ophthalmologist to get this pinned down. Hope you are taking a potent MS disease modifying agent, as this can protect your eyes. Read more...

Let's analyze. The eye twitching could be ocular myokymia, due to eyestrain, fatigue, stress, chemical imbalance, and the back pain may be due to degenerative spondylosis, or a disc issue. You list ampyra, (dalfampridine) a drug used to improve walking in ms patients, but do not list other ms disease modifiers. Do you in fact have ms? Maybe, your neurologist can sort this out if indeed you do.. Read more...

If I have multiple sclerosis do I need to see a retina specialist along with my regular eye doctor?

MS, EYE. I generally recommend a multidisciplinary approach involving an opthalmologist (general is fine), a neurologist, and a radiologist. My practice has a neuroophthalmologist so i typically by-pass the neurologist. I don't believe a retina specialist is necessary, unless something were unusual. Read more...
Not sure why. Usually, MS is handled by neurology, and no need for ophthalmology, unless you have complex eye symptoms. However, if you are to use Gilenya, (fingolimod) a potent MS agent, an eye specialist can be used to do optical coherent tomography, to assess presence of macular edema to assess risk of using this medication.
