On 10-27-07 I had my blood work came back positive for ANA AntiNuclearur which test for: Lupus, Sjogrens, Rheumatology, and nothing was said to me! I remember asking and they said well yes it was positive but we will watch it..sure. Then in March I started this severe pain in my face not sure why??? I kept blowing it off and kept cleaning my glasses about 50 times a day when I finally realized that I lost 99% of my vison in my left eye. I wasnt scared called the optomitrist and spent a good 1 hour with him and he said...I think you have a brain tumor but you need to see the Specialist Opthomitrist! Wow that was fun! I thought maybe a eye infection! Then next morning they rushed me in to see this Opthamologist for what turned out to be a turned out to be a two hours of test in his office. I am not sure all the test you all talk about...visual ect..but I know he looked at my eyes inside and out sitting up, down, laying down, lights on, lights off, almost standing on my eyes..dilated till they couldn't get any bigger! LoL He said he saw scaring behind the eye? Can that be true? Can you have lessions behind your eyes? He said NO Brain tumor, but you have MS and I want you to go straight to the ER and get a MRI w/ contrast and get a Neuro consult asap! Well the ER doc was worthless..and didn't follow the orders the doctor ordered and didn't do it with contrast...so I don't know if that makes a difference. But he said no lessions in brain. Then went to Neuro next day, and he put me on 500mg of predisone a day for 5 days to help releive the eye...it got most of eye sight back by 3-4 weeks. I have still been very clumsy and off balance...is this just me being stupid...I need to go see him and he said he wants to do a LP and I am scared...because we did a neck MRI and nothing...so should I bother?
On top of everything else I have COPD/EMPYSEMA and am on oxygen...HELP
