Hi everyone! Ive been to the hospital today to see a neurologist to discuss my MRI and lumbar puncture results. There are some marks on top of my brain, but its NOTHING like typical MS marks just some minor marks. Spinal fluid showed that there is a muscle inflation. Some evidence suggest that I have MS however, when I asked a doctor he said that the chances are that I have MS is 60% meaning there can be something else that causes me these symptoms.
Ive been suffering from this diseases for few years now. It started very mild, I was just too anxious all the time and I thought that anxiety is the cause. With interval roughly 4-5 month it kept progressing and I kept feeling worse and worse
My current symptoms are
- Leg weakness - I cant walk more than 10 minutes without feeling dizzy and really tired, feels like i ran a marathon. On couple of occasions on a night out my friends had to carry me because my legs totally failed. I cant run or jog at all
- Numbness - My feet are quite numb, when putting slippers i need to use my hand because I don’t feel where its going. Gets much worse after walking, up to the point where i cant feel my legs, in fact it feels like i don’t have them.
- Dizziness - Usually occurs when moving but also when eating hot food, drinking tea, after shower
- Loss of Balance - It sometimes feel like Ive drunk a lot of spirits, I just wobble from side to side when walking.
Thats my main symptoms. I used to be very active since a was six - football, basketball, athletics you name it, also used to be quite sociable, like going out and meet people make new friends, now its all gone. I cant do sports, i dont go out, I just became a freak who enjoy time alone.
Anyone in the same situation where the diagnosis is not 100%?
I am originally from Eastern Europe so will be seeking a second opinion back home
