I have just joined the forum to try and get some idea of how to confirm diagnosis. Over the last 12 months I have experienced the following symptoms which have been gradually getting worse.
Fatigue, reduction in strength, muscle spasms which are sometimes severe, lack of breath, shuddering sensation, constant need to use the toilet, involuntary movements, visual twitching of muscles, followed by spasms, eyesight strain and on many occasions, confusion and sometimes lack of awareness.
I have had blood tests and an MRI which have come back clear and at this stage my consultant has said that I have myclonus and until my symptoms get worse, he won’t be able to firm a clear diagnosis.
My wife is a nurse and is aware that MS does not always show in the first MRI, is this correct ? are my symptoms typical of the early stages of MS ? I just want to find out once and for all.
Advice would be much appreciated
