Dear MS Patient,
It is a mistake to assume that the pains that you are now getting is post optic neuritis – it may be, but it may be completely unrelated. There is a reason for your pain, and a thorough examination of all the anatomical structures in the region is necessary, to ascertain exactly where the pain is coming from.
The worst thing that you can do is just go on taking pain killers, without ascertaining exactly where the pain is coming from and why the pain is occurring.
If you call me on 0825555763 any day after 4pm, I will be happy to discuss your alternatives.
