Hi All, new here so I will keep it as brief as possible.
Today I am feeling a little worried because my gp rang and suggested I have an MRI. I last saw her in November after an abnormal hearing test. She referred me to a specialist and said if anything showed up I would be referred for an MRI - the tests were fine so I assumed no referral was necessary. My gp in new because I have relocated, but when I linked in with her i reported that I was experiencing periods of extreme fatigue, bladder issues, dizziness and brain fog (which I thought were related to peri menopause). I also reported facial numbness. Since then I have had issues with high pressure in one eye (3x tests) and now have a referral to an eye specialist, I am also experiencing tingling, pins and needles in my hands and feet. Anyway today she rang me out of the blue and said that she wanted me to have an MRI to rule out anything underlying. I am now seriously staring to think of ms, but I don’t fall over, I get VERY weak muscles and cannot seem to do anything physical without my muscles aching even after minimal exercise, and i suffer with balance problems and dizziness. I guess i am just looking for others who have been in a similar position. I am not sure what to think and feel a little anxious at what lies ahead and I wonder after an MRI how long it can take to get a diagnosis. I have thought briefly over the past 2 years that i might have it but dismissed it or thought it was something else. Any advice welcome. Thank you.
