My husband has been off work ill for 7 months now, we have had numerous tests been seen by Endrocrinology, Cardiology and have the sleep clinic next week, after which CFS/ME will be diagnosed
The thing is no one has ever mentioned MS. I gave asked for head CT scans and MRIs but the GP and consultants so far has said they won’t do that as they don’t know what they as looking for. I have been looking at the symptoms and the symptoms fit particularly the MS Hug which is the best descriptor of the pain my husband gets in his chest we have come across. This pain was why we were sent to cardiology, but his heart is working perfectly.
He has had issues on and off since his late teens, fatigue, dizziness etc that just comes on and he has learnt to live with it. He just sits down when he feels dizzy. He is now nearly 42. Ever time he went to go in his 20s they said he worked too hard/ overweight/bad lifestyle.
In 2014, he was in a situation he couldn’t sit down and he passed out. After this he developed a more persistent fatigue which sent him off work for two months, in the end he forced himself back to work as he was self employed and they couldn’t find anything wrong and told him to come back if he passed out again. Fast forward to now and he is worse than ever. He has no energy and goes over the door maybe 2 or 3 times a week. He is not overweight anymore as we joined a slimmng club but even thoug he has lost 3 stone he feels no better.
His symptoms are fatigue, hip and joint pain, back pain, he has issue with clumsiness (he is the least clumsy person I know) He has cognitive issues, struggles to take in information, hold a train off thought. He does suffer from tremors and has for about at least the last six years. Has trouble with temperature regulation.
There are no issues with bowel bladder control.
Do you think MS could be a factor ?
Many thanks in advance
