scared, fed-up, guilty, TRYING to be +tive

Hi, I’ve been on here a couple of times before and do find it really helpful reading about what others are up to. I’ve been waiting for 7 weeks for LP results, and some days I just feel so scared and as if I’m in a black tunnel. My symptoms aren’t as severe as lots of you, and then I feel guilty for feeling sorry for myself, but I just wish I knew for sure if it is MS. I am having new things happening all the time - the latest was as if I’d had cold water poured over my leg, and my muscles in my legs are quivering, and ache like crazy when I walk even though I am quite fit. Enough moaning - it has helped me feel a bit better though!

Have a moan! :wink: My eye is a distraction but otherwise my symptoms seem relatively minor. They are odd though and just don’t feel ‘right’ and I reckon that’s enough to cause concern and anxiety, and to make you feel fed up and impatient. Time will pass and you will find out something - that’s what I keep telling myself. (22 days and counting…). Good luck x

I know how you feel my symptoms seem minor too at the moment I’ve had a numb toe since Monday which although not affecting my life is odd to say the least. Moan away. Any ideas when you get the results? Ax

Thanks for your comments. I don’t know about the results - I rang the hospitel a couple of weeks ago and the consultant’s secretary said she had to collect all my results together and then I would get an appointment - as far as I know she only needs one result - I felt like offering to go and collect them myself!!!

Oh Fennel have a moan - the journey to diagnosis (whether it ends up being MS or not) is a tumultous one. I can sympathise with your frustrations - hope you get your results soon.
