swollen optic nerve, eye occlusion/hemmorage

I have had a swollen optic nerve in my left eye since last August, I also had an eye occlusion (thats why i went to the eye doc) who told me I had a swollen optic nerve. It's still swollen today. Lately I've also been getting nerve tremors for the past 3 weeks all over, and I can notice shaking in my hands when im doing certain things but they dont shake if i rest only if use them. I've had excess phlem in the throat at times since last october. I get very tired in the afternoons sometimes and feel fatigued, does any of this sound like possible MS or something else? They have done a bunch of blood test so far only positive is an ANA which the doc say they cant rely totally on that test.

Re: swollen optic nerve, eye occlusion/hemmorage

It sounds very similar to what alot of MS patients go through. You may want to press for the MRI to give you more results and to determine a diagnosis. I believe elevated ANA results may elude to another autoimmune disease. Please don't quote me. I hope that your doctors get to the bottom of what is causing you discomfort.
