What is the treatment for eye pain?

Hi there! My name is Terri, and I am a 43yo white female, 252 lbs, history of Crohn's disease, recently presenting with heat sensitive femoral neuropathy and eye pain for 1 month following a very stressful episode. I'm being referred to a neurologist for possible MS. (I also have a family history of thyroid disease and SLE.) My question is this: My doc said that there was a possibility of a lesion in the L3-L4 area of my spine. I had epidural anesthesia seven years ago while giving birth. Do you think that the epidural could have created a spinal lesion?

Thanks very much!

you are already having crohn,s disease. it is an inflammatory disease of colon it is also called ulcerative colitis.your eye problem are not related to crohn,s disease. thyroid disease and lesion inll3 and l4is not related to eye problem.your epidural injection and spinal problem may be related. from eye disease predicting spinal lesion is not possible. for spinal problem you can have aMRIand confirm by neurologist.
