Hope everyone is having a good day. I’d like to say to someone that I’m a bit scared. Hope its Ok to say it on this forum. Things have been happening so fast. I’ve had neurological symptoms worsen over the past 6-8 weeks. I have my first MRI brain scan tomorrow. I’m just trying to carry on as normal on the outside and not letting on to anyone, I found this forum and the honest clear replies are a godsend. Thanks
Can anyone tell me :
Can MS symptoms develop and worsen really quickly.? Do they come and go (over minutues hours or days) and can you get different symptoms every few days?
I’m female, 43 and had Glandular Fever in November 2012. I felt better for 2 weeks. Then I started to feel sick. I thought the constant nausea and dizzyness was that I was pregnant.But I wasnt. My symptoms have got worse daily over the past few weeks. It started out as fatigue, dizzyness bad memory night sweats brain fog and more migraine auras than usual. Then it was dry eyes, slurred words, forgetting words, upset tummy/constipation, muscle tremors in face, pins and needles in arms and feet, numbness in arms and feet, loss of sight (used to this with migraines) vertigo. Its easier to shuffle my feet as I have no balance. I fell out of my car as one day my legs did not want to work and can’t get out of the bath without rolling onto my tummy. Reading that back sounds a bit over dramatic sorry- some mornings/afternoons Im alot better - the point is it is not constantly bad symptoms. The symptoms are worse when I’m tired/stressed/emotional (I shake more.) You know what it feels like when you hit your funnybone in your elbow, I get a shooting sensation up my arms like that. I also get pins and needles that either immediately appear or seem to “trickle” down my leg When I shut my eys I feel really dizzy.Work sent me to see the occupational nurse who told me I shouldnt be at work and asked me to get a sick note. My doctor looked into my eyes with a light-was he looking to see if my eyes were moving side to side? I think they could be but have I done too many internet searches? lol!
Thank you for reading this and good luck to everyone searching for a diagnosis _ I hope you get it
