Hi im new on here so firstly hello everybody.
About 7 years ago i went to the docs because I kept falling over for no reason. (Not tripping just falling). I was doing Dance at the time in Uni so probably noticed it more. I also had, and still have, pins and needles in my hands which lasts for about a week each time and I cant use them properly when this happens. I had a few other things such as blurred vision in one eye that wouldnt go away for a day (Optic Neuritis they called it) and it sometimes feels like i had no legs.
Anyway to cut a long story short I had MRI scan which had 3 leisions and Evoked Potential Tests which all were “Equivocal” they put in the letter. About a year later I had another MRI and it was the same. They told me that they cant tell me yes or no and left me at that. This was 6 years ago!
They also said if i get anymore symptoms to go back so about 2 years later i went back with new symptoms muscle spasms in and around my stomach and ribs which took 3 docs to actually say it was muscle spasms and not just IBS. (I have been looking and it sounds like the “MS Hug” but not sure what that is exactly). When it happens i cant breathe for a few seconds and sometimes feels as if im winded. They gave me IBS tablets and they did nothing. The last one gave me Baclofen which is like a miracle for the spasms. I also has memory problems and stuttering which they put down to Anxiety. They just fobbed me off and told me it was nothing to worry about.
Im now getting fed up as i seem to be getting one or 2 other things such as burning sensations. Does anyone know if this sounds like MS or am I just making all this up?
Thankyou and sorry for the rant. Take care all xxx
