Hi, As the title says I am not diagnosed but had recently become quite obsessed by things. I’ve read everything google had to offer, lurked here reading all your symptoms, some of which I can relate to, most of which I can’t although I can do a really good job of persuading myself I can.
It was waking in the night a few nights ago and getting in a panic over a pain here, then a twitch there, Oh my god it’s moved to the other leg now, you get the scenario, that caused me to give myself a very good talking to. In the cold light of day I can see how obsessed I had become. It was heading down a very dangerous path that I’m sure a lot of undiagnosed and Dr Google fans have also been down and maybe not just with MS.
I have possibly neglected my husband and marriage, not been so attentive to my children (older) and in general been tied up in my own little battle with myself that I realised life is moving on around me and I’ve been stuck and my symptoms are so mild.
I am now going to take my vitamin supplements, eat well, which I should have been doing anyway, make a quick note of any symptoms and then get on with whatever I was doing and not obsess about where it is, is it worse, it’s moved, was it my imagination. I’ve noted it, I’m not actually qualified to diagnose myself and to be frank, there is nothing I can do about it anyway at this point.
I’ve wasted months thinking of little else. Time that I won’t get back and cannot recreate. I’ve cleared my browsing history so that I won’t get related items showing, and I’m going to start making an effort to think of other things when the thoughts pop in my head. It’s surprising how some symptoms disappear when I don’t give them head space.
This is the only site I will be looking on but not every day. Sorry for dropping you all, I will be back with any diagnosis news but for now I need to leave the diagnosing to the experts and give my head and mind a rest…
