Ihave been diagnosed about 4mths ago and will see ams consultant this week
How long i have had ms, who knows, iwas admittted into hospital as aday patient for a series of tests, some to rule out cardiac problems and others to prove ms related symptoms.
I had to have a lumber puncher as i cannot have a MRI scan as i have a pacemaker in situtu. Ihave another condition lone paroyxmal attrial fibrilation which has been an ordeal I have had two heart ablations and are arthymia free for over two years
Now this is where things get tricky when I got symptoms of numbness and because of my medical history I was treated as though I was having a minor stroke. I had problems with my eyes my docter refered me to london moorfieds hospital it was there that a optromist refered me to the royal london nerology for as urgent apportment, this hapened 3 days later and my eyes were showing ms symptoms.
I am really not sure if I have MS before I got AF I have balance and cordination problems which then said at the time were stroke related. I have tried to research this I could only find one case. I was wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences. Also I am due to have my pacemaker replaced this year as it is over 11 years old, does anyone know if it is possible to have a mri safe one , welcome any replys, I feel a bit mixed up at the moment
