Optic Neuritis

Very long shot this, but has anyone, anywhere any advice or encouragement for a persistent and long-standing optic neuritis? Been hospitalised three times, had copious quantities of liquid and subsequently tablet-form cortisone and still suffering from dizziness, dull ache, nausea. Opthalmologists have given up and washed their hands of me - simply don't know what else to do. Any advice would be gratefully accepted. For which, many thanks in advance.

Re: Optic Neuritis

Have you gone to a neurologist? What does your GP tell you? Optic neuritis can be a sign of some sort of other health issues (like MS). Don't want to panic you and I am certainly not a doctor, but I do have some experience in this area...

Good luck...
Jack

Re: Optic Neuritis

Yes thank you for your response and yes again, MS has thank heavens been ruled out. Was under the consultant neurologist when receiving copious quantities of liquid cortisone - this definitely helped, but problem still remains. If you have any further advice, please feel free to PM me - I should definitely appreciate any experience you may have had. Thank you in advance.

Re: Optic Neuritis

I can only enourage you to find an optho-neurologist. It's so important. A neurologist is not enough.
