I feel like I am going crazy, imagining symptoms whilst friends, family and medical professionals patronise me - please help guys!!
I am a 30 year old woman. Two years ago I had acute ON which resolved. My MRI showed a lesion but it was not typical of MS and not very ‘clear’ (!!?) and I was discharged. For the past 2 months I have had a neck twitch and kept dropping things - my thumb was painful and stiff. This was followed by extreme light headed dizziness - I was signed off work for a month. I had a numb-but not numb feeling in my left arm, hand and foot, a prickly hand and a crawling feeling occasionally in my back. These symptoms resolved in a few weeks, but i feel tired and weaker in my arms, and my left hand is still dropping things and gets achy quickly.
Due to a liver function test showing a possible virus and low folic acid levels, the neuro i was referred to said it was unlikely ms. She did various balance and strength tests. Her positivity annoyed me - i know my own body and i’m not feeling normal/right! Can someone tell me if i’m being a crazy b****?!
Is it worth doing another mri? I’m v worried that if i get a positive diagnosis it will affect getting a mortgage, my driving licence/insurance and future employment (I am a uni lecturer). Is it better just to battle on and live for the moment?
Thanks in advance xx
