Scleritis since many years. Help.

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi there, so I've been diagnosed with scleritis since the past 3 years and i didn't know how serious it was until now. it keeps recurring on and off without a reason. Did many many tests, none that were conclusive of the cause. As of now, i see an ophthalmologist and a rheumatologist to test me. so far I've been on predforte 1% drops along with some pain killers and now I've been started on Steroid tablets for a little more than a month tapering the tablets and the drops. The condition gets better once I'm on meds but it keeps recurring. The immunologist says i definitely have immunological scleritis and he suggests that i start on Folitray (immunosuppressant) and also to take Folivite to make up for the lost folic acid. I'm a bit hesitant to get on that. Please let me know if you have gone through anything of this sort. Looking for as many opinions as possible. REALLY SCARED.
