I have been dealing with a great deal of health issues since 2013. I lost my sight centrally in my left eye 6 months post bariatric surgery. They tried them to DX me with MS. After several test and MRI’S I came out with no DX and no answers. Following the loss of my sight in the left eye I had horrific headaches that have continued daily since. I see an optic neurologist who has Dx me with chronic reoccurring optic neuritis. My right eye is just about as bad as the left now although I do regain some of the site back after several months. Since 2013 I have gone through a great deal of back pain, hip pain and numbness, leg pain, sciatic pain and now in 2018 started with arm pain, neck pain and numbness. I have been through back surgery, carpal tunnel surgery, but still come out with all the pain. With the optic issues in this world I have now been sent to pain management. I had upper and lower EMG’s done which showed nerve impingements in the L5 region and 3 cervical entrappmenta. They recently did an epidural
On the lower portion which proved to be very painful but u successful. They have me on norco and gabapectin. I can say there is no relief. My visit to the optic neurologist last week has me now going for a MOG lab test. He informed us in Jan of 2018 that if I continue to show signs as mentioned above I would most likely be looking at NMO or MS. My neurologist finds this absurd but is doing absolutely nothing. Pain management refuses to do any more than they are at this point. I am due for this blood test on Monday. I live in a rural area and I am waiting on the hospital to understand how to do this and where to send. Never the less the pain is unreal. I am suppose to take 4 norco a day and 3 gabapectin. I am not afraid to say this does not work and I am finding myself trying to take more and running out early just to deal with this. Has anyone here who has been Dx with either NMO or MS found themselves having what I have described? Please tell me how to deal with this. I am getting minimal sleep, can not work and have not for 2 years, and it is driving me insane. I have a new frandbaby and I find that my functionality is so poor I am struggling to drive the 2 hours just to see him. Please help if anyone can.
