Hi everyone, I'm Becca, I've been hovering around on the site for a little while & I've finally plucked up the courage to post.
I'm not sure if I should be on the site or not ? I've been mentioning my symptoms to people for sometime now & had a google & it always brings up MS.
Basically to start my very long story off, a couple of years ago I had a flare up of all dizziness, trembling inside & generally feeling strange. The GP always put it down to my nerves as I have suffered with anxiety attacks for many years. I took their word for it & put up with the dizzy spells for about 6-7wks then they stopped as if they had never been there ?
I had been ok (ish) up until a few months back when I was standing talking to a friend & from out of no where felt like I was going to pass out, I started shaking & feeling very weak. I put it down to not eating that well that day. This is still ongoing, I feel like i'm trembling inside as if someone has a pneumatic drill going off in me. I feel weak all the time, just doing the slightest thing & I'm out of energy, I can barely walk anywhere at the moment as my legs are so weak but so heavy. I have to go round the house on my knees if I want to do housework, etc.
I'm having problems with my vision, it's as if I'm in a fog sometimes, not all the time though. I often feel spaced out as if I'm not really there if that makes sense ?
I'm so forgetful, I can be mid conversation & forget what i'm saying. My mouth feels strange, I say it's often as if my tongue is too big for my mouth but at the moment I feel like something has sucked all the saliva out & my mouth is bone dry & I can hardly open it.
I've been having strange twitches, mainly my head & my left thub/hand, I said I feel like a nodding dog. I have also started getting strange pains, mainly in my feet, arms,legs it's like a dull throbbing ache.
I've seen the GP so many times, one thought it was my ears, another said vertigo, another said nerves, i've just been told so many things i'm confused !!
I've had ECG as I've been having occasional chest pains too, that was all fine, my bloods have been ok, some borderline normal/high but they said not significant. Have just had a test for inflammation, waiting for results. GP is sending me to ENT to rule out Meniere's Disease first and then said would be onto Neurologist after.
I just don't know if I'm completely barking up the wrong tree here but I am honestly at the end of my tether & feel like I can't take this anymore. I'm only 32, I have 3 young children, I should be enjoying them but instead I'm feeling like this ????
Should I be here, are these the potential symptoms of MS or am I just a nervous wreck ? I don't feel nervous other than when I start to feel dizzy and like I'm going to pass out, arghh I don't know.
If you got this far, thank you xx
