In Topic: Celiac And Now Ms. :(

06 May 2015 - 07:08 AM

Anyone else have both?  I had my 2nd bout with optic neuritis in late February (ophthalmologist first though uveitis).  1st was 9 years ago and at that time MRI was clear.  No other MS like symptoms but MRI showed a couple inflammatory spots enough for the neurologist to diagnose.  Hoping that along with the gluten-free diet (which it sounds like many MSers are trying) and medication I'll be able to prevent and/or slow any further advancement. 


Yikes!  This scares me because I had a bout of optic neuritis and lost about 80% of the vision in my right eye about two years ago. I went gluten-free about a month after that and have been since. I just assumed that since my optic neuritis had not returned again I was safe. I mean, I knew Optic neuritis was linked sometimes to MS but I had no idea a 9 year time span could go by!!!! ACK!


I am sorry you are going through this. But I am, however rude this might sound, interested in your journey and anything that, in hindsight, you missed over the last 9 years. Now I'm a bit concerned!


Might I ask how old you were with your first episode of optic neuritis.
