I had been experiencing some flashes and floaters in my eyes and also accompanied with eye pressure as well. I went to an ophthalmologist and he said the floaters/flashers were from vitreous detachment, supposedly normal but to watch closely due to rare possibility of retinal detachment. Also he noted that my intraocular pressure is higher than normal.
It just seems odd this is all happening at once. I have been on Medrol since July 2016 but weaning off, now I'm only taking 10 mg daily, was taking 16 mg for a couple of months. Also started methotrexate in August and I'm taking 17.5 weekly via injection.
I just wonder if the Medrol is causing this increased pressure or is it the Methotrexate? Or just coincidence? I have a follow-up in a month to recheck the pressure in my eyes.
He said it could be early onset glaucoma. He asked me if it ran in my family and it doesn't. I am only in my 40's! I am just hoping that once I'm off the Medrol the pressure will subside. Anyone out there experience this?
