Optic neuritis is one of the most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis. I hate it! The only worse multiple sclerosis symptom is the feeling of vertigo. Vertigo makes you want to throw up because you feel like you are on the wave riddled sea during a horrible storm. If I do not take motion sickness medicine, start vomiting uncontrollably from vertigo. With optic neuritis, I simply have to cover the affected eye with a patch and take three ibuprofen pills every four hours.
Sleep also helps rest my eyes, so I take a lot of naps while suffering from the optics. It beats getting the double vision. Used to have that happen all the time when I was still able to drive. Would try to avoid the vehicle that my eyes told me was the closest to my car. The amazing fact is that I was never involved in an accident while having double vision!
Please help fight my disease
The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible. I remember when I first started on it , the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days! Biogen (manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

All help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity!
