A few years ago I had optic neuritis, the only symptom I had was fuzzy vision in one place only so I went to the opticians who referred me as an emergency to the GP and the GP referred me to hospital. I was asked to attend the emergency clinic & I did, but both eye drs and neurologist confirmed it was nothing to do with my CMT. But my new neurologist said that it was, because there is myelin in the optic nerve and he has written a paper about it. Then I began to get problems with speech, just sometimes I try to say something but nothing comes out. It rights itself with a second or two and most people just think its a stutter. I asked for a referral to my consultant but meanwhile chatting it over with a dentist she said the eye & mouth nerves are linked, so she thought it probably would be CMT. The thought of loosing my vision & speech is scary!! Has anyone else had this?
