hi,im Lynda,and was diagnosed with MS in 1998. recently ive been having odd symptoms,that i just presumed were my MS playing up.
i asked my neurologist to do an MRI, which he did.
i then was sent for a CT scan with dye.
they found(by accident!) my right carotoid artery is completly blocked,and they cant operate. they have no clue t whats causing this,n will b gettin lot o tests,inc a lumber punture.
ive got a stroke doc now. its been suggested i go on simivastatin as i had high cholesteral readings.
he said im the first MS patient he has diagnosed with this prob! apparently 1 in 50,000 get this,and its usually older people.
i was 40 on 30/08/15! he said it was v rare for someone as young to suffer this prob!
the symptoms i was having were in fact “mini strokes”!
does anyone out there have the same prob?
