Hi my neurologist recently told me that Hughes Syndrome and MS are extremely rare to have together. She said I’m labelled with MS only because Hughes Syndrome cannot affect your eyes. I did some research once I was home from my appointment and unless I’m going mad, it read to me that yes, Hughes can affect eyesight. I was diagnosed with optic neuritis in 1990 and apart from Prof D’Cruz who is a lovely doctor I’ve been treated like dirt by every single neuro since my diagnosis back in 1996. I take 75mg Clopidogrel daily and have noticed no difference in any symptoms. In fact I still get what I call ‘traces of broken splinters’ in my nails. Prof D’Cruz was the doctor who checked my nails all those years ago. He said it could be a sign of Hughes.
So my question is, “Is it common to have both Hughes and MS?”
I’m baffled to be honest.
