I am not diagnosed with MS as it stands but have been experiencing a weird cluster of symptoms and would like some advice or thoughts around them, whether it sounds like ms or not?
Starting in Jan 2020 I was having random electric shock like pains in the left side of my face that would be sporadic and come out of nowhere. I had recently had dental work done so just thought it was something to do with that. However for the following half year I would have periods ( a number of weeks or a month) where the pain would come and other periods where I wouldnt feel it at all. After this going on and off for a while I went to the doctors to talk about it, at this point the pain in my face had come back but also a tightness/pain in my chest area. They said they didnt think the two would be related and I was sent for an MRI to look for Trigeminal neuralgia caused by a misplaced blood vessel. Resutls showed there was no misplaced blood vessel but they did find a “Cystic structure” on my hypoglossal nerve. Either way nothing explained why i was feeling this pain.
The months following my scan my pain went away and came back in the same fashion as usual in periods of a few weeks. However, along with the facial pain and chest tightness I was experience dull aches on my right arm and most recently I’ve been having periods of ringing in my ears (chnges between both ears). I have re-contacted my GP about these new symptoms but they are still unsure and say it definitely doesnt sound like “classical” MS after I voiced concerns about the possibility of MS.
I’m jsut really confused and worried about whats causing these symptoms. When the pain comes it is so intense and distracting (not the best as I am a student trying to study for exams at the moment) and the not knowing whats happening is really upsetting if i’m honest.
Does anyone have a similar experience with such an odd cluster of symptoms?
