Hi, I am a new member, and to be quite honest I am not sure if I should even be on this forum or not. About 6/7 years ago I started having severe pain in my muscles, and numbness on my feet first thing in the morning, exasperated each month when I menstruate.
I have had bloods done, MRI, etc etc… To be told I suffer from Neuropathic pain, coupled with Vit B injections once a month. I receive pain killers, and antidepressants to help with the pain… Most days I manage to work, cut down my working week years ago from 37 hours to only 12 now, part time!. My condition is getting worse, and am struggling to cope. Do any of you thing from these symptoms that I could possibly have onset MS? I do not want to be a drama queen, but been suffering so long now…Doc said MRI was clear…is MS only diagnosed through MRI?
My symptoms are…Muscle and joint pain, fatigue, numbness in feet (esp first thing in morning) … unrefreshed sleep, insomnia, body temperature problems ( heat intolerant ), severe travel sickness, body feels heavy like a dragging sensation, need to support my wrists/hands when writing/ typing, reading a book etc…limb weakness… sweats, feel worse after a shower or bath…exhausted even at rest, symptoms worse at time of month. lack of libido, horrible mood swings.
Any help or info given will be very much appreciated.
