Hi I'm 32 and have recently been diagnosed with optical neuritis. I'm too had pain in my left eye, it hurt to move both my eyes. Lost my vision in my right eye and it seems I am congested with thick mucus at bk of my throat, I find it very hard to clear, I feel very faint and dizzy at times and is wondering if this is all part of optical neoritis?? It all started about 5weeks ago.. I had just got over a bad case of flu, my eyes were hurting and I had pain all down left side of my face in my teeth?? Then my right eye started to go blurry followed by colour blindness and complete black... I was referred to a neorolodgy and had a MRI scan, it was confirmed I had swelling of the optic nerves, but no sign of sinusitis?? This also confirmed there was no sign ms. I feel very dizzy sometimes? And was wondering if anyone else is feeling the same? I was prescribed a short course of steroids.. 5days worth. On day 3 my sight started to come bk.. On day 6 when steriod treatment was over I had the worse withdrawal symptoms ever!! Made me feel real bad.. Since which I have been very light headed... In now on day 15 since the start of steriods... Is anyone feeling the same way? I'm waiting on other test results to currently come bk at mo I.e - blood results to out rule lupus?? It's a very worrying time.. And reading some of the articals on here really help. Especially when people are also suffering sinus problems? Because I am too...
