I am reading different web pages on Optic Nerve Thinning. I read you note and was wondering what you ever found out. I am going through my second set of MS testing and i was just told this week that my Optic Nerve in both eyes have some thinning. I have also been told that this is a oncern because of MS patiets having this problem. I also have the same sympyoms you described. Left eye pain, headaches in the left temple (quick lightning strike headaches) with preassure and eye swelling. Would you please share your results with me. I am being seen by an NeuroOptomitrist as well as a Neurologist. I have my 2nd spinal tap next week and I get new MRI/MRA's next week as well. I am a little concerned. You can reach me at ***@****.
