I have just been diagonsed with Optic Neuritis, the ophthamalogist told me it should go away by itself and not to worry. He told me to come back in two weeks time. However, after reading more about Optic Neuritis I am getting more concerned and worried whether this could be linked to MS as some state. I still feel they should told me to have an MRI scan just to be on the safe side, I'm also a female in my 20s. If it is not MS, will there be any chances this can occur at some point in my life? If so can they detect it early on, by MRI scans just so that I can be at ease and not to over worry myself?
