I need help, I’m trying to get a diagnosis but at present I’m not getting anywhere fast … I had my fist episode 12 years ago after having my first son, he was 6 weeks old and I started getting headaches one afternoon I got very light headed and went for a lay down and after a few hours it wasn’t any better, so my hubby took me to the hospital where I was admitted, the following day I woke up not being able to see, compleat darkness… This lasted for about 6 weeks I had a cat scann and other test but they where all inconclusive so it was put down on my med docs as a psychosomatic disorder (which i wasn’t happy about) anyway it passed and all went back to normal. Until 2 years ago when I had the same thing again but for a much shorter period this time. Again I had a ct scan and they did find an inflammation which was put down to infection I was given antibiotics and again I sorted itself out. but in the mean time I’ve also had problems in the sex department and with pins and needles and stiff neck all at different times… I’m very confused as I’ve read so much now that you know what it’s like you convince yourself you have everything you are reading.
I’m not sure what to do next I don’t want to go to my doctor and say test me I’m a nurse and I know what it’s like when patents start telling you what they think they have wrong with them… But where else can I go? help please! am I going mad or is it likely I could have MS???
