Hi everyone. I’m looking for some help and advice if possible.
About 4 years ago, I presented symptoms of pain behind my right eye, blurred vision, constant floaters, slight tremor in my right hand and muscle stiffness. I initially was referred to an eye specialist who detected nothing after a full exam. I was referred to a neurologist who completed a full neurological exam and detected no abnormalities. The symptoms stayed the same for the proceeding 6 months so I was then given an MRI of the brain and spine. This showed no abnormalities. I then had a lumbar puncture which was totally normal.
Following all of this, my neurologist diagnosed me with status migranosis and put me on sodium valproate, citalopram and imipramine. After lots of playing around with dosage, my symptoms have been manageable for the last 12 months or so although my tremor and the floaters in my vision are always there when I move my eye fast. I also have good and bad days where I feel not so well sometimes.
Over the last week my symptoms have flared up again and today I visited the a and e department. He checked my reflexes, strength and looked at my eye movement and back of my eye. He said all was totally normal and the disks at the back of my eye were also not pale.
i am going to the docs tomorrow to ask to be rerefered back to the neurologist but I’m still worried that I have ms! With a normal neuro exam and normal Mri and lumbar puncture, what are the chances I have it?
I know you guys aren’t necessarily doctors but advice or reassurance would be really helpful! I feel like I’m going mad…
