My doctors believe I have MS because of my many other symptoms of the disease. But I currently lose vision in both eyes for just over three days and am curious as to whether this is a syptom of Multiple Sclerosis (I've read that one eye can experience that, but not both), or something else entirely? Is it possible that it was the MS that caused it?
Yes, blurred vision in one or both eyes is a common symptom of Multiple Sclerosis. I think what you are reading is about Optic Neuritis. Optic Neuritis is mostly common to be in one eye. Double Vision is what is common to be in both eyes. Are you having any sort of dizziness? If so, that would be Vertigo. Vertigo is also very common and for me, I get blurred vision and the room starts spinning. That is a pretty simple explanation of Vertigo. Not necessarily does the room spin for all people just dizziness and it usually causes some sort of vision issues. The link I am connecting here gives an explanation of Optic neuritis and also Double Vision along with a few other symptoms that can affect the eyes with Multiple Sclerosis.
This is another GREAT link to tons of symptoms common to Multiple Sclerosis.
After reading all the symptoms, this will help to understand why sometimes it is hard to diagnose MS. Many people have some of these symptoms and when being tested for MS a lot of times the tests won’t come back positive. So it takes time to get a diagnosis. That would be for another day and time. I hope this information helps give you a better understanding to your question. I am always available to help answer questions, you may have regarding Multiple Sclerosis.
I am not sure why the "vision problem" lit up blue and takes you to a link. That is not the link I pointed out.. Please highlight the whole web address and copy/paste and go to the site that you are supposed to go to.. LOL
