Stabbing Pain

Morning all!

Hope you are all doing well. For the last few days I’ve been experiencing a stabbing pain behind my left eye and today a little in my right eye. Along with this I’ve had a kinda dull headache. I’m on gabapentin and take 3x300mg a day. Do you think I need to ask the GP about increasing this dose to help with this pain? Or has anyone found another solution to this issue? The pain is quite intense and comes and goes throughout the day. All I tend to do is run my eyes and cover them when the pain comes, but it doesn’t stop the pain from coming back.

Anything you guys can suggest will be much appreciated.

Take Care

hi @avrilt 😊

Sorry you’re experiencing this. Maybe contact your MS Nurse and get their take on it and how to move forward . . . .

Hope it gets sorted for you.

@avrilt , it does suggest Optic Neuritis:-

So, yes, MS Nurse in the first instance.

Hey guys!

Thanks for your comments, I’ve called my MS nurse and I’m just waiting on him getting back to me.

Just an update my MS nurse called and he is going to arrange for an MRI. So I will know if the MSonster is back fighting me again!
