I’m new to the site and am reaching out because I need to talk to someone and this is the perfect place. I am 29, a PE teacher and a sport mad lady. I have been experiencing symptoms for over a month now. vertigo, headaches, blurred vision, sickness, loss of appetite. I have had my first experience of tingling in the fingers today, it lasted a few minutes and is now gone but i’m in overdrive worrying about what this now means.
I am over depressed about all this, I go from crying to very angry, to feeling positive. My life is totally in limbo and I’ve never been so afraid of something in my life.
I have seen my GP, the eye specalist, the ENT doctors and now I’m seeing a neurologist. I’m going for a lumbar puncture and more blood tests in 2 weeks and I’m scared of it because the procedure it’s self is gonna be horrid and this is the one that will give me definate answers (or so I understand it),
I am a total mess and feel all alone. My mother is really rubbish and when I told her I may have MS she said “oh, have to wait and see” and hasn’t bothered to call me since to even see how I feel about it all. My sister told me I’m letting my anger consume me and that I need to stop. I am angry but it’s not consuming me, it’s not there all the time, right now fear is the big emotion.
How did others get through this, how do you cope with the impact that this has on the rest of your life (missing lots of work right now) HELP ME!!!
Thanks for reading
