I am still awaiting my formal Diagnosis which I should get in the middle of September, I have been suffering with since 2010 I suffered for a while and went to the drs and was diagnosed with Depression and medicated, I returned a few weeks later as I found a lump that turned out to be a golf ball size inter muscular Uterine tumour and that was causing anemia , after chemical menopause to shrink my tumour to do keyhole surgery they forgot to take it out and I had a hormonal flair which caused me to have a abdominal Hysterectomy at 38.
So what does this all have to do with Ms … After years of complaining of little recovery from my symptoms that should have gone after my surgery I was sent to a Neurologist, I walked in thinking he was going to tell me it was damage caused by my surgery, He done a full Neurological examination and asked a million questions and then hit me with it … You may have MS my symptoms listed below:
Memory problems & Brain Fog
Ringing in the ears and (Over sensitivity to sound at times)
Tiredness & Fatague , Sleep problems
Constipation & Bloating, Abdominal Discomfort
Sexual dysfunction & Vaginal Atrophy
Loss of sensation in several areas
Heart beat awareness , Depression, nervousness
Burning Hot feet mainly at night but not always.
My blood work is all clear no Anti Bodies, traces of viruses, deficiencies, I am current waiting on my EP results which I know had issues as they re done it as I felt it on both sides of my body when one side was stimulated, also when the Neurologist tested my reflexes whilst I was laying down with my eyes shut my opposite leg also responded to it. I have had a full brain and spinal cord Contrast MRI.
since finding this out I have done a little research as you do, and came across a book which written by someone who suffers from MS and it could have been me writing it, it is the first time I have felt that I am not crazy and that is why I decided to join.
My phone is my lifeline, it reminds me of everything, without it I could not function, I don’t know why I am telling you all this, I think it is more that I have told anyone, I am just hoping that someone out there can appreciate where I am coming from.
Blessings you all
