It’s my first post on here and I’m looking for some advice please.
I’m as yet undiagnosed but had 2 appointments with a neurologist with a specialism in MS. I’ve had an MRI which didn’t show anything and am awaiting nerve conduction tests.
I first noticed symptoms 7 months ago as follows
Electric shocks all over body
Strange headaches (and I don’t normally have any headaches -although I did have hormonal migraines which have stopped several years ago)
Intermittent dizziness which feels like being on a boat
Things have progressed by me losing my balance, being clumsy and bumping into things and brain fog. I’ve started doing 30mins of gentle yoga every morning to help the body work and to help with my balance (it’s definitely doing something!)/
I’m on 40mg of Amitriptyline which has helped with the electric shocks.
The neurologist thinks I don’t have MS but is continuing tests, but he’s also mentioned fibromyalgia.
The complication at the moment is that I started a new job just as this all started and now I’m struggling with it. They’ve been really good so far, spacing out my shifts so I can rest in between. But I’m particularly struggling to retain all the information that I need to learn and recall it as necessary. I absolutely love this job but I’ve now been referred to the occupational health team.
So that’s where we’re at! I don’t want to lose my job and I do want to know how to make the journey forwards better.
Any suggestions welcome. Thankyou in advance.
