I have had short bouts of dizziness, cognitive problems, profound fatigue and headaches regularly for about four years, but didn’t know what was causing them.
But from September I have been consistently ill with new symptoms on top of the dizziness etc. These are muscle weakness, tremors, strange sensations like someone walking over my grave, burning, and tingling. My body constantly feels overworked - like I’ve done too much in the gym - and I fluctuate between muscles which feel like lead or like jelly.
I got referred to a neurologist in November and finally had my first appointment today.
I had a series of neurological tests - reflexes, heel to toe walking, scraping sole of foot etc. All responses were normal.
Neurologist said MS seemed unlikely but booked me in for brain MRI and also took load more blood tests - some already done by GP but also others such as Lupus.
I asked how long it would be for MRI and he said 6-8 weeks. This seems so long! After being constantly ill since September I can’t bear the thought of waiting another two months.
Also, it sounds awful but I just wish that one test or another would show something abnormal so there is more to go on than just how I say I am feeling. Is it possible for the neurological tests to all be fine and yet still have MS?
Feeling very down today - just want to get some help and know what’s causing me to feel so poorly.
