So basically around the beginning of September I started experiencing a few MS like symptoms: tingling in different places, blurred vision, heavy/weak feeling legs, and some others.
I told my mum about it and at first she just laughed it off as me having one of my ‘hypochondriac moments’ but when I stressed to her that I really think something is wrong & told her about the different symptoms I had she actually got mad at me and went on about how I overreact to things and that I’m being ridiculous. She even told a lot of my family members at my birthday a few weeks after like it was an ‘oh look how silly and irrational my daughter can be’ joke, which just made me feel like I’m an idiot and that I have no one to turn to.
All of the symptoms pretty much went away (except the eyes, which I now have glasses for and the occasional tingling feeling) until tonight where my legs have started to feel heavy and weak again. I want to be able to talk about it to someone but now I’m scared that people will tell me I’m overreacting and just brush me off, or they’ll humour me but not actually believe what I’m saying. (it doesn’t help that when I went to the doctor he just brushed off my symptoms as ‘stress related’)
So what I want to know is how some of you guys dealt with that. Did you tell people? Were they supportive? How did you tell them?
