My 4 year old granddaughter was complaining of headaches and

My 4 year old granddaughter was complaining of headaches and her eyes went crossed for a few days; she otherwise felt fine. She was taken to her Pediatrician, they did a physical but found nothing wrong. They referred out to an Opthmologist. They discovered that the optic nerve in both eyes was swollen and scheduled and MRI. Looking on this sight I see that Optic Neuritis can be a symptom or side effect from MS: can this be a sign that she is getting MS?

Hi, I am 21 years old and I have been getting this really uncomfortable crunching in the back of my head when I turn my head side to side, then there is usually some pain to follow. I also get a weird grind like feeling when I tilt my head to look up and it hurts after that aswell, (sometimes as it happends), then I feel a little dizzy and off balanced. I also get a fair amount of pressure in my head which is relativley painfull. I would also like to add that my mother has osteoarthritis, fibromyelga, and degeneritive discs. So i am wondering if any of those are hereditary because she has had some of the same symptoms.

My granddaughter is 8 years old. Today she mentioned several times that she feels short and it felt weird. On Friday her school had field day, and at the end she said she had a headache, but it went away. Do you have any advice as to what the weird feeling may be? Should I take her to the doctor?
