This is the 1st time i’ve posted on here, so please forgive the long post!!!
I had my first ?episode in the summer, symptoms were extreme dizziness for over 2 weeks, which GP thought was labrynthitis, then suffered palsy to my face… after attending A and E, and having a CT scan, i was admitted on to a ward and had a MRI and Lumbar Puncture whilst i was there.
The MRI results came back showing 6 lesions in my brain, and i was given a possible diagnosis of MS. Follow up appt with Neuro just went through what they had found, and that as it was my 1st episode, they were presuming it was CIS. He did prescribe steroids to get rid of the remaining symptoms, which finally they did. i was off work for 9 weeks, then went back on reduced hours.
However here i am 4 months on, and starting to develop new symptoms, i developed a tremor to my right hand which lasted 2 weeks, terrible aches and pains in my legs, hips and back, to which the GP doesn’t think is related to MS. Not to mention the overwhelming Fatigue, that just will not go away.
MS nurse states that when i go to see Neuro again at end of next month, that he will prescribe something for the Fatigue, which i must admit will be most welcome.
Today my back is terrible, and round the rib area too so much so that i’ve had to ring in sick for work. I just feel so down this past couple of days, that i feel like i’m cracking up…Surely once i’m diagnosed , and started treatment i will feel better…
Please tell me this down feeling doesn’t last forever!!!
