So lately I have had yet another bout of sepsis and intensive care that's twice in six months but I'm recovering slowly

I was wondering I have just been diagnosed with 6th cranial nerve palsy basically I hAve permanent double vision d my heRing loss has got worse my muscles are so twitchy and now I have started to get numb / pins and needles in hands and feet.

The eye affected is the same eye developed optic neuritis in ( I have no MS lesions )

The local hospital said basically we are sorry we know something is wrong but we cannot find out what yours is a very complex case

  • HI, I do hope you are feeling much better soon, I include some papers for your interest to see that this has been reported before: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/167... ard.bmj.com/content/63/10/1...

  • I am sorry you are not doing well. I just want you to know you are not alone. Hughes has not affected me like you, but it has affected my nerves to the point I am in a wheelchair. I can walk very short distances with a walker. Don't give up hope. When you are feeling better you need to find someone who work with you to give some help. Someone out there has know how to help you. Keep trying, I do, no matter how hopeless it seems. This website is a good start. Designer16
