Hi all. I am hoping for some advice around some symptoms I have been experiencing. Not sure where to start so I will list the things I have experienced over the past few years. Decline in vision which seems to come and go. I sometimes look at the tv and cannot make out words for blurring, yet othertimes my sight seems ok. I frequently have floaters and shapes that cloud my vision. Ringing in my ears. This happens a lot and is quite annoying. I often feel light headed or dizzy and occasionally will trip over my own feet especially if trying to step side ways. I woke this morning and felt extremelly dizzy and felt as if somone was squeazing my head and had to take the day off work. I also feel nauseous. I am hypersensitive to smells and often smell things that noone else can. I am very tired alot of the time even after a good nights seep. My right knee gives way and athough I don’t fall I feel as if I am going to. I get pins and needles in my hands and odd electric shock symptoms in my chest. I sometimes feel as if my liver is double the size and pressing on my ribs (I don’t have a drink problem). I also experince sporadic throat symptoms where I feel as if I have alump in my throat and find swallowing difficult. Sometimes this is fin and other times I notice it a lot. I frequently need to urinate and this has definately got worse the past year, I also seem to have IBS symptoms. Occassionally I struggle to find words and when i type I will find that I have typed words the wrong way such as hte instead of the. I don’t have dyslexia and have never had these problems before but they have got worse. I feel as if I have brain fog and although I am educated I feel as if thinking is hard work sometomes and I feel like it is making me lazy. I hope that all makes sense. Sorry for rambling.
. I am,44 years old. There is no family history of Ms but I do have a heart condition which I am medicated for. I was thinking of starting wth an eye test to see if the optician picks anyting up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. i feel quite scared and feel reluctant to start with the doctor because Im no sure of their reaction and if I am honest I am a little bit afraid of what they might find. Thanks Lola
