Experiencing Optic Neuritis for the First Time
April 23rd, 2012 I was diagnosed with optic neuritis. I had an MRI indicating no signs of MS or a stroke. The doctor had me on 5 IV sterioid treatments, prednisone pills and I just had 5 treatments of plasma exchange. As of right now, I still have not regained sight in my eye. The only thing I can see is some movement, but that is it. I saw my ophthamology doctor on Friday and said I'm making an improvement and as of right now I'm not any medication. I'm wondering if there is some other type of treatment, things I can do or cut out or if acupuncture would maybe help. The next step with the doctor is referring me to see a neurologist. Any help or feedback would be appreciated.
