Hi, I’m very new here but already have found this forum very helpful.
I had not been feeling right for a year. My balance was off and energy levels were really low. Long story short I was sent for an MRI in May which showed 4 blotches on my brain. Since then I have had a Lumbar puncture which showed antibodies in my Cerebal spinal fluid and an VEP test which I am still waiting on the results of.
My neurologist will not confirm it is MS although he has said that in all probability it is. He has put me oon Gabapentin to try and help with my symptoms ( legs are sore at night, and feet ache) but now I seem to have what feels like pins and needles in my face - very weird sensation - Does anyone know if this could be down to the medication? Also I’ve been referred for another MRI this Friday. I’m happy that all these tests are done but the lack of knowing is torture.
I had my secong we girl 6 weeks and she is just a little bundle of joy but I worry about what the future holds. My wife is so so strong its incredible but I worry so much about what a toll this whole process is taking on her. I do my best to be upbeat and strong as well but its hard sometimes when your head won’t stop spinning, your legs feel like you’ve ran a marathon and you keep walking into things because your balance is all off… Bit of a pisser all round
Anyway, sorry this is a bit of a ramble… Just wanted to vent a little bit I suppose.
