I’ve had ME for 13 years, so am familiar with the exhaustion and mental fog, as well as the total lack of interest from doctors.
Last week my right eye went a bit peculiar and I called my gp just to ask if it was something I needed to see her about. Got told to come down immediately, was slapped onto steroids that night. Next morning the local hospital phoned and said come in NOW (unheard of lol) - and I saw the eye consultant. Back to gp next morning and she says no eye problem but next step is an MRI scan. I cannot think of anything else that fits these symptoms other than MS, so I joined here to learn more. There seems to be a lot of common ground between ME and MS, so at least I’ve had plenty time to get my head round a possible diagnosis of MS.
I have two main questions… Is it common to be left without any firm diagnosis ? and what should I expect next? TY!
