Needing prayers for my wife's vision.
« on: Sun Jan 08, 2012 - 08:56:32 »
Need prayers for my wife again.

We're not sure if it's from the new medication that she started 3-4 months ago or a flare-up or something completely different, but my wife's eyesight has gotten to the p[point where she is having trouble focusing and it's throwing her balance off and she called out of work today because of it. She is also getting some double vision.

She tells me it's like when you spin around and then stop and it takes a few seconds before you catch your balance and see clearly, but that it's like that at all times for her.

The new MS medication could be causing macular edema which is a side effect of the drug, or a flare up could be causing it.

We go to her macular specialist tomorrow afternoon. It was the quickest appointment that they had when we called in on Friday.

Dear Father, please come in with healing for this dear woman seemingly having an inner ear problem, but You know the problem, and have the cure for it. Restore her eyesight to normal and I thank You for it in Jesus' name. Amen.

Just got back from the specialists appointment. He doesn't see anything that would indicate that it's a problem with the medication and the medication is showing that it's improved some other areas that were of concern within her eyes, namely the thickening of blood vessels.

He believes that it may have to do with her MS and that this is common among those suffering with MS. He also mentioned that it tends to be temporary in duration.

She hasn't had a relapse since 2008, so we were getting a little concerned that this is what it would be if it isn't a issue with the medication. She has an appointment with her neurologist in 3 weeks and will bring it up to him then.
