I’m undiagnosed but have been suffering with symptoms that have led to MS being one of the possible diagnosis.
I’m seeing the neurologist in June - and although I know the internet can’t diagnose me, I was interested to get views on whether my symptoms sound similar to others.
The main symptoms initially were fatigue, headaches, interrupted sleep & achy legs / muscle pain. This led the GP to suspect COVID & Long COVID even though the tests came back negative twice.
I then developed strange sensations on one side of my face (mainly under my eyes / top of my cheek). It has been like this for about two months but has gradually progressed to a burning sensation (that is worse when I’m tired or hot). It is always there but sometimes feels like it spreads to my ear or across my nose. It also feels like it is causing pressure on my ear (like it needs to pop all the time).
If I push myself too hard with work or even walking then I pay the price as it absolutely wipes me out and I end up needing to sleep. The irony is that I can’t sleep at night and will wake 5/6 times in average.
My bloods came back positive for autoimmune but the GP didn’t understand them (said it was beyond his expertise & said I needed to discuss with a neurologist or rheumatologist).
I also had a CT scan that was clear but not sure what that means as I’m led to believe it would only highlight a head injury, tumour or stroke.
Any thoughts would be appreciated…
