Ok. Having been pressured by a friend and receiving (quite frankly) awesome advice from here ;), I have been to see the doc and I have a referral to Neurology.
Without wishing to bore, I will run over the symptoms briefly…
18 months ago - suspected ON - all cleared up (MRI fine) but still have symptoms when I am hot
Early 2012 - suspected TIA (talking gobbledegook!)
Early 2012 - Intense itching that lasted for weeks but stopped as suddenly as it came
Oct 2012 - Fatigue - oh my word, can’t belive how kn*ckered I was! - pretty much all gone now
Oct 2012 - Periods of breathlessness and pain in back sometimes requiring trip to A&E - none since Dec
Oct 2012 - Palpitations - no obvious reasons - mostly fine now.
Present for many months - pain in my forehead when I touch it - doesn’t hurt when I don’t.
So, to cut a long story short, the doc doesn’t think there is much to worry about but has referred me because of the problems with my eye being troublesome when I am hot and the facial pain. The rest are not neuralgic symptoms apparently . So basically as my title suggests, I am just going to stick my head in the sand and ignore it all until I get the Neruo appt (have no idea how long that will take!!). As I feel mostly completely fine, (I actually feel like quite a bit of a fraud), this should be quite easy to do. If it is ok with you fine people, I will come and bother you when I have the appt date for details on what to do/say!
