I have read many posts and learned much. Thank you to everyone here and sharing your stories. I am 42 year old male with unknown type of MD along with MS as well. Not entirely sure where to start. The MD / MS war is on…
I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at age 11 which has not caused mobility issues until my mid 30’s, and diagnosed with MS at age 39 but cannot tell which one is now causing the mobility issues. MD is muscle tightness and fatigue, unbalanced walking. The diagnoses of MS and newly blurred vision with ringing ears, vertigo symptoms as well…I cannot decipher which disease is causing the muscle weakness and daily fatigue to worsen even more in the past year. Having been diagnosed with MS more recent than MD is giving me an opinion, but I really don’t know. Reading the posts, I also learned about relapse symptoms but, once again, cannot decipher since muscle fatigue are factors in both, and I haven’t had a relapse (that I am aware of). My MS doctor doesn’t want to grasp MD and vice versa, but neither have had a patient with both so I kind of get it. I really do not know where to steer the ship anymore, which is causing mega anxiety daily. Does anyone know or have an opinion on the best specialized doctors on the planet?
