Question Nystagmus

My first clearly presenting symptom of MS was vertigo and nystagmus in 2001. Now a week ago the vertigo re-presented itself and has just tapered to nystagmus only. I am getting real frustrated though. My business is working on the computer and focusing on my work is rather important. I have had problems with keeping my eyes focused for a while, but the nystagmus has gotten really bad now. My annual eye doctor appointment with an opthamologist is in three weeks. Do I wait to see him or should I try to see a neuro-opthamologist before then? Do you think the months I have had trouble focusing my eyes at times was a prelude to the nystagmus? Any hints or guidance from your experiences would be greatly appreciated.
