I recently had optic neuritis. My MRI was clean, but my eye doctor seemed concerned. How common is it for this to come back or turn into MS?
I am a white female in my late 20s. I went to the eye doctor with vision loss and pain in my right eye. She could not see any inflammation but to be safe she sent me to get an MRI. No lesions or signs of inflammation were found. I've had chronic pain for a long time, pins and needles, numbness, and fatigue. I haven't been sick or had any infections. My vision was back to normal a couple weeks after my MRI. My eye doctor said there was a chance the ON could reoccur and we need to keep MS in mind but for now I just have to go about my life as normal.
Does this seem like an isolated case or should I be worried this will come back worse? What is your experience with optic neuritis?
