Well, sort of new. I think I found this forum when I had issues about 15-16 years ago.
At that time, I had a lot of odd symptoms & ended up having an MRI that showed a lot (20-40) small white spots. The neuro said he couldn't tell if it was ms related or migraines & I'd have to wait & see what else happened
Symptoms continued & I eventually found out that I have celiac's. Almost everything settled down & I found a steadier job & got divorced (2 major sources of stress gone). I changed doctors & did not forward my records as I got a a lot of grief about my symptoms being in my head etc
I've noticed some of my old friends gradually returning. Tripping on flat ground. Falling on stairs. Fatigue. Trouble speaking. Pins & needles in my hands & arms. Bladder incontinence. I've been ignoring them as best I can & try to be very digilent with my gluten free diet.
In Dec I got the 'flu & have been very fatigued ever since. In Jan I got sharp pain behind my right eye that worsened with movement. My vision would be blurry in the morning & is worse in bright light (I've always been light sensitive). This has pretty much resolved but I still have an achy pain behind my right eye
I see an optometrist tomorrow. If it was/is optic neuritis, will she see something off in that eye? I didn't realize she wasn't an opthamalgist when I made the appointment.
I realize I probably should see my family doctor but I got so much grief the last time I pursued this, I'm just dragging my heels on it.
Thanks for reading my novel & any input
