Hi there everyone I am a 33 year old mummy of an 8 yr old who is awaiting diagnosis, had symptoms for about 12 months gradually getting worse with each episode. Went to my GP today with my shopping list of things to tell him and low and behold I got an urgent refferral to rhematology (which reading on here is quite common), 7 xrays and 6 monnovettes (vials) of blood later I am left scratching my head. He actually told me this is all to rule out rhematoid athritis first as it’s easier to do this than get a conclusive diagosis of MS so I am told.
My symptoms are :
Being a clutz (some would argue this was there before lol)
pins and needles
photophobia (me no like bright lights)
muscle twitching … and many more besides … oh almost forgot memory problems !!!
I would just like to say this site is wonderful and without reading peoples posts on here I would not have the courage to go to my GP as I feel like I am going insane as my symptoms come and go and are interchangeable. All I can do is sit and wait for my telephone consultation in 2 weeks, which now feels like an age away so now I am stuck in limbo xx
