Question I'm seeing sparkles

I'm sure there's a better way to describe this but does anyone see the floaty sparkles? I used to get them when I'd stand up to fast or had a bad headache but for the last week or so I see them several times a day out of no where. Is this a symptom of ms or just one of my weird quirks? Thanks!!

Re: I'm seeing sparkles

Weird quirk Love it! It seems like all symptoms are weird until you put them altogether
I have ON and get the sparkles all the time, with blurry eye, a free high I guess. Sparkles and halos around light can also be glaucoma. If your vision is clear, no eye pain, just sparkles, at least call eye dr to check eye pressure for glaucoma (I am tested 2x's yr cause my eye pressures are up a bit)

I also get sparkly crescents (think a migraine is coming, but no, just sparklies)
I don't really know what it is either. I'd check with eye dr just to rule out glaucoma and take it from there.

Re: I'm seeing sparkles

Hi,
Would you also describe them as "twinkles?" They float around and the more you try to focus on them the more those disappear while others are still in view?
I have these but I have not yet been diagnosed yet, although many other MS symptoms. Have you heard anything about these yet?
Lisa

Re: I'm seeing sparkles

Hi
Sorry but what is ON? I am fairly new on here and the abbreviations are hard sometimes to figure out. I get what I call "twinkles." Currently, my right hip is in so much pain I can hardly stand it. Did you ever experience what feels like a hip joint problem? Is this a symptom of MS too?
Any good coping methods for it that you know of, if you 've had this.
Thanks, anything will be appreciated.
Regards,
LisaB

Re: I'm seeing sparkles

On is optic neuritis, pretty common for MS. (Attack on the optic nerve, like brain and spinal nerves are attacked)

Re: I'm seeing sparkles

ON is Optic Neuritis. It's painful to move your eye, and you usually have a big blind spot in your field of vision. It's caused when your optic nerve to the back of your eye swells. Most people with MS have this at sometime, and it's loads of fun. Steroids, steroids, steroids. Usually effects one eye, although sometimes you can get really lucky and have it in both eyes.
