I’m new here . i haven’t been told that it’s 100% MS but that i have a 20% chance of having MS in future which is an ofd diagnosis but 3 doctors told me the same .
I’m 23 years old , it all started 2 and a half months ago when my eye started to ich and was red for a week and then i got the double vision . And it wasnt a “ all day long “ double vision it just occurred 20-30 times a day . Since it wasn’t improving and after and MRi the neurologist saw multiple lesions not only on my optic nerve , but EVERYWHERE in my brain .
i started Medrol IM low dose injection 2 weeks ago for 5 days then i had oral prednisolone 5mg which im still taking . By the third day of injection i think i had a cold or sth and my anxiety made me stay in my bed searching for all kind of disease and then the nightmare started . Neck pain , chest pain , back pain , headache , hot flashes , vision which was improving got worse , itching all over my body , all kind of sensations in my legs and arms , electric shock sensation in my brain . When i say pain , it’s like a 10 second shooting pain . After about 3,4 days it got a little better but i still have the itching and some pain but it’s less severe .
I’m afraid because i read a lot of stories but mine seems a lot different and i have EVERY POSSIBLE SYMPTOM .
Is that another MS attack ? And does anyone experienced two MS attacks this close to eachother ?
When i get anxiety i start to diagnosis myself so i already went and Had a lot of blood work done and start losing control freaking out and having suicidal thoughts which is not new for me
Does anyone had the same experiences ?
Does anxiety worsens symptoms or create new symptoms ?
Sorry if i made some mistakes , English is not my mother tongue .
