I'm at such a loss...(health related)

 Afferent Pupillary Defect...also called Marcus Gunn Pupil. Do you happen to have it? It's almost always caused by a lesion on the optic nerve. My eye doctor found it in the eye I always have problems with. I brought the report to my doctor at the MS clinic, and I basically blew it off. I figured if he wasn't concerned neither was I. But then I went back to my PCP for an altogether unrelated issue 6 months later. During the exam, she too discovered it and said it is a clinically significant finding which indicates MS or MG. I trust her completely. She is furious that the specialist didnt see it during the exam or take it seriously based on the eye doctor's report. Ugh....I hate this. None of the experts I see can agree on anything.Just to clarify-this January will be 10 years since my first episode. I have not been diagnosed. The symptoms are there, but not enough lesions can be seen; however, my last MRI was done without contrast because I had a panic attack halfway through. I have tried to accept that this must just be the way I am, but every time I go to a doctor, they find something neurological and send me back to MS clinic. The clinic staff sends me back to where I came from.


(I did post this in the MS group as well....I just figure there is more traffic in here)

My friend has MS and she has eye/vision problems that go along with it somehow. Not sure of the specifics with it though.
