I found this forum while looking up neurologist appointment waiting times and thought it was actually a good idea to post and ask for advice.
I have been suffering from vision changes for the past 4 weeks as well as extreme fatigue, and pins and needles during the night in my hands (boths).
I first went to the ophtalmologist as I thought it could be eye strain or something similar, but got the all clear from them confirming it wasn’t physicial but probably visual processing. My vision issues are the feeling that contrasts are just way more intense (I can’t really look at a computer or phone for too long as the black text on white background feels like it’s glistening, “popping” to my brain), I can’t look at patterns, anything that is busy and with repetitive shapes like a blind, a radiator, a spreadsheet etc… and some colours are more vivid than usual.
I’m only 28 and am crazy worried that something is very wrong with me (like I had a stroke without realising) or I might have MS (my sister has it).
I’ve been to my GP today who did some checks, blood works and has referred my directly to a Neuro specialist. Usually I have to really push my GP for anything to happen so for them to refer me straight away it got me worried. I’m going private (thanks to my work insurance) so hopefully should “only” have to wait a month or so.
I know you guys don’t have answers but I feel like I had to post and see if anyone had had similar symptoms?
