OMG I think I’m going out of my mind!
I was diagnosed with MS in April privately but have now switched back onto the NHS and am going through all the same tests before starting treatment. I was a bit miffed at this, but yesterday decided to google the MS ‘mimics’ and came up with Hughes Syndrome - does anyone know about this?
This was the possibility that really struck a chord with me as I have a history of fertility problems linked to ‘sticky blood’. I was diagnosed with Impaired Fibrinolysis after a miscarriage and repeated failures of IVF. In the end I did have two natural pregnancies for which I had to take blood thinner (clexane) injections to 34 weeks gestation. I gave birth prematurely at 34+5 weeks and 36+2 weeks - another side affect mentioned in the Hughes Syndrome website!
Am I clutching at straws? I know I had only basic blood tests before diagnosis but am now having more specific and detailed testing…so I guess I have to wait and see. I have never wanted to be diagnosed with something so much!!!
