Re: sun burn feeling and eye pain

Baridy- you might be starting a relapse. The sunburn feeling, could be inflammation of the nerves- thus causing you to have sensitivity to touch. Its not unusual for this to be a MS symtom. The eye thing, could be the beginning of an attack or Optical Neuritis, also caused by inflammation of the optic nerve.

This isnt something I would play with. Id call your Neuro first thing tomorrow and if you cant get in to see him, call a good opthamologist and get your eyes checked.....a opthamologist (NOT AN OPTOMOTRIST) can look at your optic nerve and see if it is inflammed.

In the meantime, absolutely TAKE IT EASY and DONT stress. Youll make yourself worse by worrying about it and if it is a MS thing- its not the end of the world; this too will pass. Avoid extreme temperature changes....tepid baths, dont go out in the freezing cold if you can avoid it and stay relaxed.

Let us know what happens..
