I am not sure if I have MS or some other neurological disorder or something else.
After visiting an ENT with what I thought was de-compensation from an old vestibular issue, he noticed I actually have very bad disequilibrium and am uncoordinated. I failed the finger-to-nose test, Rombergs, and the one where you flip your hands over.
He suspects something is wrong with my cerebellum. I also have 24/7 dizziness and dropping things, walking into things all the time. Keep getting my words mixed up. Feel soo fatigued I can barely work.
So, he has organised an appointment for me at neurology. It’s in two months time. I’m guessing some kind of MRI will be appropriate.
If I do have something ‘episodic’, like MS can be, will it show up on an MRI at any time, or only when I’m having symptoms? I do have the option to go private and get everything done quicker (but it would mean spending all my savings). What if my symptoms improve between now and then? Will anything be detected?
I haven’t been ‘right’ since an episode of vertigo 2 yrs ago that was put down to Labyrinthitis, but I’ve been ill, and getting iller, for 4 months now. The last week has been pretty horrific.
Many thanks for any advice or help anyone can offer.
