I am new to all this so please bear with me. I am still classed as undiagnosed but neurologist has said he is 80% sure I have MS. I have had brain and spine MRI and both show lesions. I went private initially and had the MRI but now I am back on NHS I feel like I am now in limbo waiting for a lumbar puncture and eye test, bloods etc. My main symptom is Lhermitte’s sign and internal vibrations which are worse when I bend my neck and do any form or exercise even walking. I have suffered with health anxiety for a long time and I think this has mainly been caused by no one believing me including my GP about the random neurological symptoms I have had over the last 5 years as they have been putting it down to anxiety! I started taking sertraline a few months ago and feel it exacerbates my symptoms (tremors etc) even though the Neurologist says it is not the medication making it worse however as it helps my anxiety I have decided having the side effects outweighs the horrible anxiety. The Lhermitte’s and strong vibrations literally started the day I started taking the sertraline which is really strange and I can’t quite believe it’s coincidence even though I have the lesions. Does anyone else have any experience of SSRI’s and worsening of symptoms? Fed up of all the waiting now I just want to know what is going on.
thanks for listening xx
