Hi I’ve recently been diagnosed with MS well the results from my MRI well the findings of this with multiple lesions in my brain and spine are suggestive of MS. I’m seeing the Neurologist on Monday. I am very concerned as I know of one person who is under the care of this neurologist and he won’t prescribe her meds. I am the main carer of my severely disabled daughter. I am hoping that he will give me medication.
I think I have had MS for about 10 years. Had a tightness around my middle, right leg kept giving way. I had a serious car crash when I was 19, one of my injuries being a wedge fracture of the spine. My family kept telling me my symptoms were as a result of the crash. I eventually went on to developers pins and needles in my right foot, had a scan but nothing abnormal showed up!
Anyway over the past 4 years I have developed vertigo and double vision each episode only lasts 3 -3.5 weeks. I have also had the touching sensation of someone touching my arm and leg. Including when you bend your head forward you get vibration/electric shock going down yr spine which lasts seconds. This however no longer happens.
I think my family were shocked with the diagnosis as they thought I was hypochondriac complaining about various ailments!
Anyway sorry to waffle on. My main point in posting this is what should I ask my neurologist when I see him and how can I get him to prescribe medication? My relapses just happen out of the blue. I am never ill beforehand. Usually I wake up with something. I currently have tingling hands which is very annoying.
Thank you all for reading this and for any advice you have.
