Hello Im new to this Forum and wanted to ask anybody if they think I could have MS .
I have a number of illnesses I will list them - Subventricular Tachycardia , thyroid disorder, Fibromyalgia, cfs , Slipped disc with Osteoarthritis in my spine, Asthma, depression and anxiety, I am on alot of medications but none of this has changed in yrs .
About 7 years ago I was diagnoised with Fibromyalgia and cfs I get the usual widespread pains and fibro fog and lost of other symptoms but 4 months ago I started getting a new symptom which is abit scary I get the feeling of moving in slow motion and I get alot of pins and needles in my hands/arms -Legs/feet and In my Neck and shoulders -
About 2 - 3 times a week when I’m driving I reach out to change gear or put my indicator on and I suddenly feel like my hand and arm is moving in slow motion and my eye sight goes double vision and I feel like Im floating feeling or swimming motion ( Its hard to describe ) but within 30 seconds I’m back to normal ( well as normal as I get ) This also happens when I reach up to get something off a shelf in the supermarket I start feeling all hot and dizzy then the slow motion feeling and double vision… This morning I visited a doctor ( sadly the doctor I saw today wasn’t my normal doctor so has no Idea how I am on a daily basis ) He told me it must be a reaction to one of my tablets but I said to him but my medication hasn’t changed in years so don’t think its anything to do with medication but instead of looking into things he has now told me to reduce my tablets and I should feel better - Im scared to reduce my tablets because I will end up in alot of pain and unable to cope with things so I’m thinking of making another appointment but this time with my normal doctor because she listerns to me and understands that when I make an appointment for a reason then I must be worried which I am .
This is a list of other symptoms Im having but not sure if it’s Fibromyalia or If I have MS
Pain behind my eyes ( like someone is pushing my eye balls out - tingling down the sides of my face like numb pins and needles - Insomnia - I forget things all the time - The Pins and needles in my hands/ feet - Legs and arms - my fingers go so numb I can’t hold anything and I drop things all the time - Always thirsty - I get double vision and blured vision - I have to walk with a walking stick or go in a wheelchair because my legs give way and I feel very wobbily/dizzy - I get alot of cramps in my legs , shoulders, neck, and my shoulder blades go into spasm - I always feel so exhausted like I have had no sleep in weeks and I feel weak in my legs and arms ( I find it hard to lift my legs up when climbing the stairs - I struggle with co - ordination and I suffer with forgetfulness - I get diagnoised with Virtigo alot ( Feels like everything is spinning around. )
