I should probably state that I have not yet been diagnosed. Had a normal MRI two months ago.
But for the past six months in addition to the tingling and numbness (mainly concentrated on my left side), and the vision change in my left eye that first started about year ago, I have been having phases of dizziness, light-headedness, weakness (my legs shake when I stand up), muscle spasms and cramps, difficulty walking, pallor (people comment on how pale and sick I look) and overwhelming fatigue. Generally I feel myself getting a bit tired and then it worsens over a period of a few days.
Today I went out to the city, but after an hour I couldn’t take it anymore and had to come back home. I felt so utterly pathetic. I have been lying in bed for hours resting.
The doctors I’ve seen are pretty flippant and say it’s probably just fibromyalgia which I know I do have. But these episodes and the new symptoms I’ve had in the past year make me very sceptical and I seem to be getting worse. I keep opening my MRI scan pictures and trying to look for anything that maybe they might have missed, which of course is completely futile and I just end up welling up from frustration.
I was wondering does anyone experience anything like this?
Can anyone just tell me I’m not a crazy hypochondriac suspecting it might be MS, because after being mocked by my GP and dismissed by so many doctors I just don’t know anymore.
