These are symptoms that are ongoing and in view of the bigger picture did not even come to mind earlier today but I see that they are fairly common. I have had ringing in the ear several to many times, the last three fimgers beginning with the middle one, are somewhat to almost totally numb, I have had iritis for 18 years with two lens replacements (both eyes)for steroid-induced cataracts- not systemic steroids. Iritis was not part of the MS picture but I now have a count of 9 prisms (everything is double). That probably was caused by MS and half my hair fell out after onset of MS 10 years ago. Sounds worse than it is but easily dismissed when I think of where I was headed shortly and the fact that now I can walk, turn around, get up from a chair (or even the floor), climb a fence and go all day without a nap.
