Good afternoon, here is my story. I woke up on May 1st, 2019 EXTREMELY dizzy, balance problems and couldn’t stop throwing up. Ive never experienced anything like this before. I went that night to the urgent care and was told it was just vertigo so I was given Antivert for nausea meds. After a couple of days I returned to work but had lost feeling in the right side of my tongue and face. Still extremely dizzy and not eating much because my taste was off from my tongue being numb. The following week I saw an ENT that said I had an inner ear infection. Nothing was getting better and I was feeling worse by the day. I went to the ER because I knew something wasn’t right and they did and MRI and CAT scan which lead them to set me up with a Neurologist because some scarring showed possible MS. I finally saw my regular GP and he gave me a steroid shot and antibiotics to help with the inner ear infection. On May 16th, 2019 I saw my neurologist and he did blood work, and VEP test and set me up for a lumbar puncture to confirm the potential MS diagnosis. The next day he started me on IV steroids for 5 days followed by 6 days of the pills to wean myself down. I feel better but my vision is still blurry and I’m still a touch dizzy at times. I was just wondering how long others have had there vision compromised and how long it could take to resolve after this apparent flare up. I glad its better but I’m just scared and looking for others stories to try to find some comfort in.
