I’ve been to see my GP this week with a list of what I thought were unrelated symptoms and she wants to refer me to a neurologist but said she was concerned that it could possibly be pointing towards ms. I’m the sort of person who thinks knowledge helps you with any problem so have registered on here to see what I can learn. I know it will be. Long road to any possible diagnosis. I’d be interested in buddies who are in a similar situation. For a while I have been embarrassed and worried that people would think I was making up what was happening. I was also embarrassed by the symptoms. Now I’m worried of what’s happening. I had glandular fever as a teenager and I’ve seen that could be a factor. Had anyone had similar symptoms and it turn out to be ms. Here are the symptoms:
falling up stairs- about every week or so, this has happened 2 and 10 years ago.
no strength in my hands, especially my right which is constantly painful
backache- I did slip a disk last year
pins and needles from groin to toot on one side
difficulty swallowing and choking on food.
Bowel issues- when I have to go I can’t wait
Bedroom issues- now really struggle to reach irgasm
Bladder - more frequent trips to bathroom
extreme fatigue - I work shifts so get tired but at the moment I’m absolutely exhausted all the time
has anyone else had similar symptoms and any tips on managing them. Also any help on going through the diagnosis process. My gp says the wait for a consultant appointment is 4 months so she’s advising me to go private.
Thanks for reading
