I have seen the neurologist for the first time a few weeks ago, through a referral from my gp who stated in the letter to the neuro that I was being referred for tremor. This is correct, my main symptom at the time was tremor (amongst a host of other things!). Due to that, the neuro was only concerned with the tremor, and the appointment seemed so rushed that I couldn’t talk about my other symptoms.
I have been concerned for a while that it is due to MS, but have not mentioned this to either the gp or the neuro. In the last week, I have been experiencing excruciating pains in the right side of my jaw (which the dentist could not find a source for). Indeed, it doesn’t feel like a dental problem, the pain is not worse when I eat/bite.
My question is: should I just tell the doc/neuro that I am concerned about it being MS? I know I am in no way qualified to diagnose myself but I feel like I am beating around the bush waiting for them to come up with something. I am worried about being diagnosed as being a hypochondriac!
