I’ve recently had a list of symptoms relating to MS, my mum was diagnosed when I was born and the doctors, nurses and even midwives were all worried that I would also get MS after having my little girl. Nothing showed for a long time, I suppose they were expecting me to collapse in a heap on the floor seconds later? My little girl was 5 months old when I first started getting tinglings, slowly, more strange things were happening and I realised that I had actually had all of these symptoms 2 years earlier and that they have been on and off for a while. I hadn’t been to the doctor as I was out in Spain visiting my parents for a couple of months. I too it really seriously one morning when I woke up and couldn’t walk. My legs felt heavy and tight and moving them was agony, I fell over in several attempts and my husband had to help me up.
The day we got home I managed to get in to see my GP and she has referred me to a neurologist. I am desperate to get in there ASAP as my husband is in the Navy and due to go away soon for 2 months.
I really wanted to know how long it took for everyone else to get referred and what your experiences are? I am very scared, mostly because of the baby and the fact that my husband is never here. My mum told me when she was first diagnosed, 22 years ago, she was kept in hospital for 10 days to be constantly monitored and tested.
Any experiences are welcomed, I just need an idea of what is potenially on it’s way.
