I haven’t been diagnosed. I’m still waiting to see the neurologist, but I wanted to check in on a recent issue I had with my eye.
I should mention I had an eye exam recently and was wearing a trial pair of contacts for the last couple of weeks. I have a very high myopia.
Last week my right eye started to feel very uncomfortable. It felt like it was burning or like when I have a fever and my eyes get that stinging sensation. I figured it was dry eyes from the contacts and started wearing them less throughout the day. Then this past Tuesday I finally gave up by lunch and put my glasses on.
Then in Wednesday I had a very sudden sharp stabbing pain in and around my right eye. I was so severe I had to stop what I was doing while tears streamed down my face. Thankfully I was brief, only about 30 seconds. But ever sense I have had a dull ache around my eye.
Also, because I originally started this process by seeing an ENT for dizziness and was given the diagnosis of vestibular damage (because he couldn’t find anything else) I have a list of vestibular exercises I am supposed to do. The one that involves crossing my eyes causes the muscles in my face under my right eye to twitch or spasm.
I am just curious if anyone with an MS diagnosis has experienced anything like these symptoms?
