MS Symtoms?

27 yr old female 

About 4 months ago I was hit in the right eye with a fishing pole. Vision is that eye has not returned. Very blurry. I’ve seen two optometrists and one ophthalmologist. Eyeball checks out ok.

About two weeks ago while driving my right fingertips went numb, the numbness traveled up my right arm to my face. Half of my face tongue and throat went numb. I pulled over at a store and I was very confused. I was aware of everything happening but I couldn’t process it. I tried talking and could not get the words to come out. Either I could not talk at all or only half the word would come out. I knew what I wanted to say but it just wouldn’t come out. The whole episode lasted about 45 minutes. Then went away like it never happened.

Appointment today with ophthalmologist - failed “red cap” test. Everything else looks great. No issues at all with my eyeball. He says my vision should have returned that it’s been long enough since the trama. He thinks it’s just a coincidence and I have something further going on either with optic nerve or brain. Being referred to a neurological ophthalmologist.

      Not that I notice. I feel body aches more often it seems. But I’m probably 30 pounds over weight and I don’t exercise aside from being a mom to two boys lol so I figured I probably just need to loose some pounds.

      I work in the oilfield and I was about 2 hours from the nearest hospital driving home. So I just stayed on the phone with my husband. And once it went away I figured I would just tell my doctor unless it happens again. But yes I will definitely go in next time.
