I just joined this site today. I have been visiting a neurologist for a while now for migraines. I guess I never thought other symptoms were really associated with the migraines so never brought them up. The only symptoms I ever shared with my doctor are symptoms I thought were related to my migraine. Like previously I experienced vertigo for like a week (talk about awful), then I also experienced some vision changed like blurry vision. However, a few weeks ago I started getting tingly sensations in my head and sometimes travelling to my face. So, I decided to bring this up to my doctor this week. He suggested that I needed an MRI and asked about more symptoms… These are my symptoms I get that are reoccuring (including some I just mentioned): blurry vision (comes and goes every week), vertigo (maybe every other week for a short time), loss of balance and coordination (only occasionally that I thought was due to clumsiness), tremors in hands sometimes and even eye (which is weird), bladder/bowel problems (every day), pain through out my body (it comes and goes), numb and tingling in my arms and legs at times (just recently sometimes in my head), itching (which I am unsure if it is related because it comes and goes which I feel could be allergy related), of course migraines (every single DAY), fatigue (pretty constant), and I have issues remembering and concentrating (I feel like I can’t put any more information in my head no matter how hard I try to remember it - also every day).
After going over all these symptoms with my doctor, he feels it could be MS which is why we are doing the MRI. He also wants to rule out anything else it could be. So, now I am waiting. My MRI is on (Dec. 16) Tuesday at 9:30 am central time. Then I will know the results on the following Monday. I guess I will keep you all posted even if my MRI doesn’t show any signs of MS. Even if the MRI doesn’t show signs of MS, it seems like it still could be MS based what you all have said! I just hope whatever it is the doctor is able to figure it out easily. I wouldn’t like to wait months or years to be diagnosed with whatever it is!
Anyway, you all seem very friendly! Even if I don’t end up with MS it is comforting to know that there are people out there that understand the similar symptoms I am experiencing. Thanks for reading my post!
