I am new to this site.
I haven’t been dx with ms but I know there is something wrong with me, my symtoms are very similar to those of ms and would like someones opinion as i am at my wits end with all this.
It first started about 8 months ago with a twinge in my neck followed by back pain then the pins and needles came, I went to my gp who figured it was just a trapped nerve and refered me to a physio therapist, by that time i was starting to get blurred vision and weakness in my limbs…
To cut a long story short the physio didn’t help, I went to see an optician about my blurred vision who couldn’t see anything wrong.
As my symptoms started getting worse i.e) muscle twitching,feeling dizzy,unable to concentrate, extreme tiredness,stiff neck,flu like feeling…i could go on.
Although i have all these weird symptoms the most frustrating for me is finding it hard to speak like im slurring or getting my words muddled up and my tremors.
Although they are not severe being a hairdresser my ability to speak and keep a steady hand are vital. I am afraid of loosing my job because of this. i feel people don’t understand as i look fine i must be exaggerating or making it up, my bf thinks it’s all in my head.
I just don’t know what to do I’ve had an mri scan which has come out clear and have another doctors appointement next week, i feel low I keep avoiding my mums calls because i know i’ll end up crying and i don’t want her to worry as i think it will kill her if she ever found out i had ms.
I feel this has gone on for 8 months now and i still have no answers I know ms or any neurological disease i may have aren’t an easy thing to diagnose and it can take years but it’s driving me mad being stuck in limbo.
Feel free to share your story’s and symtoms with me.
