How Do You Describe Your MS Eye Problems?

























A few years ago, I wrote a cheeky little blog listing the 12 things I’d learned from a dozen years of living with MS. In it, I quipped that “someone should write a symptom thesaurus for MS.”

Well, the response was strong and we began our monthly MS Symptom Thesaurus blog three years ago this week.

For this installment, I thought we’d look at the broad subject of vision problems related to multiple sclerosis (MS).

It’s funny how many symptoms of MS people may have before they are diagnosed — but still not seek medical help. When it comes to something very wrong with our vision, however, we don’t seem to let that one pass. It may very well be why so many people with MS are diagnosed because of “eye trouble.”

From double vision (diplopia) to nystagmus — the uncontrollable shaking of the eyes — there are many different vision problems that can be attributed to MS.

As is our custom with the MS Symptom Thesaurus, I’d like to invite you to share the types of vision issues you might have because of MS in the comments section. Use your own words to describe what they look like, how they feel, and how they affect your day-to-day life.

Your words can help someone else who is looking for a way to describe the same symptom to their doctor or loved ones. The way you explain your MS vision problems can help others explain theirs.
