My daughter, she's 21, has an MRI scan on 16th June and an appointment at the Neuro clinic on 20th and the rest of the family are due to go on holiday on 17th. No one has said anything about her having MS, but after having done a little research, which I know is not always a good thing, I think this may be what the hospital suspects. She only went to Specsavers for an eye test, but couldn't see anything out of her right eye, and they sent her to the eye hospital the same day. After looking at her eye, the took bloods and sent her for a chest X-ray, whilst also refering her for the MRI scan.
Now as I said, no one has actually told her why she needs these test done, and the Neuro clinic was never mention, but once I started to look on the good old t'internet, and came across the MS Society, I have found that in the last 3 months she has had other symptons, that at the time I never thought anything of, but now I don't know if I'm putting 2+2 together and getting 5.
The first thing she had was pins and needles and numbness in her hand, I think it was also her right hand, which despite me keep telling her to go to the doctors she didn't. We thought it was circulation. Then the loss of sight in her eye. The next thing is her leg has started to give way. She was at a festival the day before this started and she thought it was something to do with that, being stood up all day, but that was over a fortnight ago, and it is still troubling her.
I've not mentioned my concerns to her and if she has any concerns she's not mentioned them to me or her dad, and as we are going away and she is staying at home with her sister, I'm now worrying that we shouldn't be leaving her. My sister, who is in health care, has also offered to go with her.
I think I would just like some advise please, as this is all completely new to us.
