Re: I'm so tired of not being able to see
It's true that the steroids only speed up what will happen naturally, but sometimes it is very worth it. If you're not able to do your job, take care of your children or maintain physical safety, then you should consider asking your doctor about using steroids.
Every neuro that my daughter has seen says that steroids are safe to use up to three times per year (in regards to osteoporosis). Side effects are a different story. They can be nasty and might not be worth the benefit, but that's a personal call as everybody responds differently.
Wishing you healing,
