I am in need of some help please
I have had crippling ongoing symptoms of multiple sclerosis since i was 17 1/2
I was told i was too young to have MS, my optic disc "looked fine" and according to the gp that meant i don't have it at 17.
I am now 30.
I have hundreds of symptoms now and it has genuinely destroyed my life and it seems i am no closer to getting and clarity, or transparency from drs
My question is this.
On a recent eye test the optician described swelling the optic nerve of my right eye.
He did not say anything else and did not give a medical term for this.
What is the medical term for this? Isn't swelling on the optic nerve behind the disc literally optic neuritis ?
Its been there a long time as the colours in that eye are damaged and faded out from the first attack at 17
I have been palmed off over the years, told its stress, anxiety, a continual migraine aura without the migraine. I've been told absolutely anything and whole heartedly dismissed
Absolutely exhausted and too tired to fight this anymore i am wondering if anyone can give me a straight answer
