I’m new here! I’m in limbo at the moment. For the past 5 years I had been lead to believe my symptoms - pain, fatigue irritable bowel/bladder etc were due to fibromyalgia and that the jerks I’ve been experiencing are a form of epilepsy.
But 3 weeks ago I suddenly couldn’t walk. I went to A + E and they identified that the reflexes in my knees were too sensitive aswell as my legs feeling like they were lead weights. They did tests including MRI which showed areas of white plaque and also did a lumbar puncture to ‘rule out’ MS. I am now waiting for them to send me an appointment to get the results.
I am just wondering, was anyone else diagnosed as having something else which ended up being MS all along? In my mind it all seems to fit into place that I’ve been suffering from MS all along - although obviously I’m no expert but they did say that when the did an MRI 3 years ago whilst investigating the epilepsy there were areas of white plaque then but they were smaller than they are now! I was never told this at the time though!
I’d be interested to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience to me.
