Okay so I am basically looking for answers to see if anyone out there has the same thing. Here's the story: November 2010 lost vision in one eye went to opth. and dr. concerned I had a tumor or MS went in for MRI and was started on IV steriods. MRI was clean no lesions. Vision came back and is currently about 80%. However, in May of 2011 I began to have vision loss in right eye (right eye dominate, darn it). Went back to Dr. and he was very concerned sent me to a Opth. Nuero. she started me on IV and sent me for another MRI plus had several blook work ups done on me including NMO. All have come back clear. Met with a Nuero at ther equest of my Opt. Neuro. and she sent me for a thorasic (?) MRI and spine MRI and more blood work. Spine and throat are clear, no lesions, i did however have a vitamine deficiency. Nuero. has recomended putting me on Copaxone because that even though I don't show any lesions that I have the symptoms of someone who could end up with MS or may even have it. Wants me on it to prevent. I am frustrated. I have friends that have never ever experienced vision loss and here I sit with STILL no vision in my right eye. I gues I am just seking answers...is Optic Nueritis a common thing among MS patients? Is it common to not have any leisons and still have MS? Is it safe to go on Copaxone? After looking into the price that just about killed me? Feeling very depressed and wanting answers from someone other than a Dr. Please help if you have an answers. Much thanks! :)
