Hello. I have just literally registered as I am worried that I have symptoms of MS.
I have had this weird spaced out/foggy head feeling for the last 3 weeks. It came about from nowhere. I have had these ‘attacks’ for over 10 years - they seem to happen once or twice a year and last for 2/3 weeks but this one is taking longer to go. I am really very anxious on what I can do, the Dr does not really take me seriously and keeps prescribing nose sprays and hay fever tablets, these do nothing.
Today I struggled writing for the first time, and even whilst typing this I am making a lot of spelling mistakes. When I speak to someone face to face or over the phone I don’t always hear what they are saying, miss it or can’t process it. I really feel incredibly stupid and slow. I feel as if though all my senses have slowed down. I can’t properly taste, smell, touch, perceive space around me.
I have a fullness and ringing in the ears, neck ache, puffy eyes and just don’t feel myself. It’s like I am awake but in a dream/drunk. I very rarely drink, and never to an excess.
Whoever I speak to says I am speaking normally, but I know I am not feeling myself. I am having difficulty driving and concentrating at work.
I keep self doubting myself and feel as if though I have wet myself or soiled myself - when I check there is nothing. It really feels like I am going mental and I just want to get back to being me.
I would appreciate some advice as to how I go about sorting this out. Please can you help.
