I have been having some MS symptoms for the past 3 months. I saw my GP who sent me for lots of tests and an appointment with Neuro Spinal Unit. I had MRI spinal scan in May. Then my symptoms went away and I thought it was a one off.
In early June some symptoms returned but much less than before. I called the neurologist I had seen and she booked me in for MRI on my brain. At the same time I got a lightheaded feeling and nausea. I’ve now had this for about 3 weeks. I even took a pregnancy test as it feels like morning sickness. I’m not pregnant - which is a relief as I already have a 3 year old and 6 month old.
I had a call from the neurologist last night who, after looking at my MRI brain scan, confirmed that it looks like MS.
I’m not sure how I feel today. My husband was with me when the doctor called but I now have to start telling others.
My symptoms have been pins and needles, numbness, extra sensitivity and some weakness in my right leg and left arm.
I just wanted to say “Hi” and see if anyone else has this lightheadedness as the doctors seem to think that is anxiety rather than MS.
I have been really impressed with all the doctors and and the speed in which I’ve been seen. I think i’m one of the lucky ones -
