First post MS symptoms

I’m 25 years old and been having symptoms for over 12 months now. That have become more frequent and scarier.
I have nerve pain mainly on my left side, in my arms, face and legs. I get weakness on my left side and I struggle to grip. I have a squeezing pain around the bottom of my ribs. I have very tight calf muscles, can make movement more difficult. Back pain and back numbness. Bladder issues. Double vision and constant floaters on one side. Tremor. Plus, a few other things. I have been going to the doctors who at first said it was a migraine. Then a few months ago said it’s not a migraine, you damaged your neck doing exercise or an activity so you’ve damaged your nerves in your spine but I haven’t done an activity that would do that damage. I’ve been referred for a nerve test but no MRI yet. Just wondered is it best to bring up my concerns that a lot of symptoms are similar to MS or is it best to let the doctor send me for this test first? Feel a little ignored and I’m not sure what’s the best way to approach this.

Do you live in the U.K.?
How the process of diagnosis works will be different in each country. We have GPs who see people and after an initial assessment may refer you to a Neurologist at a hospital. They would do an examination and decide on tests. Only then would you get a diagnosis

Symptoms that appear to point to MS can also be caused by other diseases. Often it takes many tests before a diagnosis can be given ( and sometimes they are still uncertain or get it wrong)


Yes, I live in the UK.
I’ve had a recent follow-up with a new doctor who is concerned by symptoms. He said that I was already on a referral list for a neurologist (I wasn’t told this) but it could take up to 18 months. He’s put a TUP referral in to speed the referral up, he said I should get an appointment within 2 weeks. I know it can take a while to diagnose MS but I’m hoping this is the start to figuring out what is going on with me.
