... Glamour Girl, I wonder if this is an Austrailian thing- because in the US they do NOT recommend Oral Steroids, especially a dose pack for optical neuritis. I found your post to be interesting.

... Life with MS is filled with twists and turns and the ever noted "what if's". The hints of focusing difficulty may certainly have been a prelude- or not.

Then they pulled me in a room, told me that they thought it was optic neuritis and that they discussed... (10 replies)

I was sent to the hospital that night and since then was scheduled for an MRI, spinal tap, evoked potentials, optic field test... (6 replies)
