That lesion is pretty big, true, but in MS, it's not size but location that causes problems. Many lesions are 'silent,' fortunately. This means that at least for the present, they haven't made themselves known in terms of symptoms. This tends to be true especially for brain lesions.
I'm a big proponent of treatment drugs for MS. Personally I'm on Tecfidera, knowing that this way I'm doing my best to keep further MS damage at bay. Not treating it but just waiting for the next thing to happen is a scary thought. Are you on one of the MS drugs?
Loss of sight for that short period of time sounds more like migraines. I get them and they sometimes do not hurt but take me sight in one eye for short periods.
If you have vision problems often you might have to stay off the road for not only yourself but others.If I have a migraine I pull off the road until it clears.
If your eyes are bad you can get disability. It does not pay as much as a job and it is hard to get but if you need it it is there.
Thank you Alex and Ess. I haven't had migraines in probably 5 or more years. I am 53 and being tested for a stroke, still waiting for results. I will see my doc next week to go over everything. If I tell my doctor anything, he kinda overreacts, so I am not really worried about having had a stroke. I am currently on Tysabri. (once a month infusions). I struggle with nerve pain, fatigue, cramping and cognitive issues. I work in Special Education, so my days can be challenging to say the least. I am also an artist, who after 10 years am just starting to sell my work. Life is cruel sometimes! I would do steroids if I knew it would fix it, but last time it do anything for me and I was so sick for 4 days. Thank you for your comments. Take care!
