I don’t know i this is the right place to put this but here it goes.
for the longest time , maybe beginning 4 years ago ive been having pains in my legs and arm. over the last 12 months ive been getting more symptoms , weak and painful hands, bluring in my right eye , stabbing electric shock pains in 3 plaves in my head and the leg pains have gotten so bad that i find it hard to walk most days.
ive been going to see my doctor over the last year and he just pumped me full of pregabalin medication and yeah it helped a bit to ease the pains but it only masked what was really going on.
i made the effort to sit with my doctor and said how everything combined was starting to really worry me and that i had met a lovely woman who had been diagnosed with MS and would that be something to look into.
he said no and that it couldnt be MS and that im worrying for nothing, thats when i decided this guy is a quack and i changed to another surgery… my new doctor straight away said he wanted to get me to see a neurologist and to explore if or not it could be MS , i never even had to mention MS.
but here we are now and its been a few weeks and im waiting for an appointment from the hospital. i called them today to chase it up but they said call again next week ad see if an appointment has been made available.
ive read on these boards how it can take a very long time to come back to getting any sort of prognosis and i am just wound up over it all. as i mentioned it gets so hard to walk, i am in bed typing this now as ive just burnt myself out today and feel completely deflated and drained from just doing house work.
how did you all deal with this limbo that you all must have went through?
sorry for the rant , i just needed to vent
