Interesting Perspectives

Thanks for your thoughts about my eye problem. I have checked out negative for diabetes, but I have had high blood pressure for 20 years which is under control with medication. Yes, I thought it could be caused by the CIDP which varies with each of us. But, I noticed a peculiar feeling like the back of my eyeballs were slightly sore after I got the first IVIG treatment. I did not think anything about it until I got the results of the recent 😮 eye exam. After four years of misdiagnosis I immediately thought that maybe I had something else such as MS which can cause blindness. But I was told that my brain looked too good for that disease….no plaques. I am scheduled to go back to the eye doctor next week. He is faxing the results of the exams to my neurologist so they will all be on the same page. Also, I am due for a brain and back MRI in March. I will keep you posted.
