hi im sorry if this is long winded but i need some adivise.
i have been suffering for years now and nobody in the medical world will listen or belive me ,so any opinions good or bad will help.
it started a few years ago with TN and awful dadilitatig fatigue,i now have a couple of patches of skin on my face that are completley numb.this is also when i started to suffer from constipation wich i now take laxitives for every day in order to go 3 times a week if i am lucky!!i also suffer from pins and needles and twitches at this time after going to the dotcors numerous times they eventualy sent me for a blood test,wich came back slightly low in B12 ,folate and iron,they told me this was causing all my symptoms and i will be fine when they are back to normal!!things still were not any better os i was sent to a neuro who sent me for an MRI wich came back normal and he said as the scan was clear they could rule out MS.
2 years on age 39 things are getting worse i feel drunk and weak most of the time i havent been able to work since the summer when i passed out and collapsed,i am getting quite a few tremmors wich they noticed in A and E wich they gave me medication for when i was there,i have also been low in vitD i suffer awfully at night with horriffic burning in my feet most of the time to the extent that i put socks in the freezer to put on my feet at night.i have had double vision in the past wich the eye hospital found out was convergence insufficiency and i now suffer from psoriasis!!
i have had times when i have been stranded,once in a shopping centre as i totaly lost the feeling in my leg and i also, had to pull over in the car as i couldnt change gear as i lost the feeling in my hand i found this really scary and am now afraid to go out on my own,and am left with a perminent numb patch on my left leg.
i asked a doctor if i could have a second opinion from a neuro and had the appoinntment wich left me in tears andmy husband disgusted,i walked in and he said all my symptoms are due to depression and in my head and his exact words were I CAN TELL JUST BUY LOOKING AT YOU THAT YOU DONT HAVE MS!!he didnt even examin me!!
sorry to keep on its not that i want ms ,i just want help with all my symptoms to get a better quality of life for me and my family its getting us all down i used to do so much i used to love going out a riding across country with my daughters somethimg i can only dream of now!!!
once again sorry for keeping on ,i just didnt know wher else to turn for advise,and now i need a rest as this has been exhausting LOL
