Hi well i went to a private clinic long story. The doctor i saw is an expert in MS and Lymes, ME, environmental issues and other things.
After being with her for over an hour, and prior paperwork i had supplied her with and MRI scans etc, and an extensive neurological testing she has diagnosed me with a differential diagnosis of MS or Lymes. Or MS with Lymes, or MS with a co infection of lymes.
She told me i had failed all my neuro exam and everyone pointed to a marker for MS. Some of the symptoms i have though could be part of Lymes so i am having a full blood count for that and all the co infections of lymes and this blood test will be going to the states.
On 7th June i am to start B12 injections for 3 months for my MS (she is obviously convinced that is what it is), and I have been given a supplement regime to start if i want to which will help my neuro pain.
So i came out of there feeling vindicated and sort of happy.
I actually feel great now too although tired but kind of calm and happy as now I can get on with my life.
Best money i ever spent.
She is very thorough and I had 12 bloods taken yesterday all going to the states to special labs, and I have to get another 8 on the 7th. So if there is another reason why i am so ill we will finally find out what it is.
I dont suppose my doctor under the NHS will recognise my diagnosis but i dont care to be honest, as I can get all the treatment i want anyway without it.
Today is a great day, and if i do have Lymes bring it on…Maria
