Well - went to my eye doc and had an exhaustive eye test and an optomap taken of the optic nerves. She said my eyes were in fantastic shape for a 36 year old IT programmer.

She chalked my vision sensations I have been having to sinuses, maybe mild tension or headaches brought on by stress. She also told me focusing on your vision can cause you issues. I have to assume if MS was causing vision and head issues my optic nerves would ahve shown something.

So now a GP, Neuro, and eye doc have found nothing out of the ordinary to suggest MS. The last test I could get in an MRI but my wife won't allow me. Guess its time to start believeing that it is purely anxiety and move on. I hate how anxiety picks areas to manifest in that are so troublesome. In my leg that I walk on daily and my eyes that I look through constantly. Why not my ear lobe? :winking0008:

Anxiety knows yout weak spots. Because anxiety had always been there waiting for the right time to start bullying you.
I really don't think you should say "No MS diagnosis YET". It's not really respectful to those who actually suffer from MS and it's also not a really productive way of dealing with your anxiety.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be insensative to anyone who has MS. I was simply stating that no doctor has given me the diagnosis my mind thinks I have.

I understand what you mean. But try to stay positive in the little things, like subjects of topics. You have to hold on you know.
