Hi and welcome. Most of your symptoms sound distressingly familiar to me. I suggest you visit your gp and insist on a neuro referral. Regards David

Im already under a neuro but he is just very dismissive of everything my othomologist suggests ms and that i should have another mri but this time i should have both brain and spine scanned as only had brain last time my visual field tests are not good either . My neuro has reffered me to a neuro othomologist back in june urgently but my appointment isnt until december im suffering again now and have been for 4 days
