- Hi all my name is gaz
It all started for me 2003 no feeling in my left foot and pins and needles in my hands I saw the doctor he didn’t have a clue about a week later i lost all strength all over my body so went to a&e and they admitted straight away had bloods and lumber puncher done no joy had MRI done found scar on my brain stem but still no diagnosis test after test then given steroids on a drip and started to get my strength back within a couple of days. I was in hospital for about 3weeks . i had follow up mri scans over the years and no change. 2016 I developed blurred vision in my eye confirmed as optic nerve damage. Nothing he could do. Then this week had my review with my neorolgergist he said it was a second attack of ms. I said so it’s ms then he said yes and has revered me to the specialist. What will happen next ? why as it taken so long to diagnose me. Also I developed bladed problems 4 years ago so why wasn’t this linked to my ilness as all my simptons had never gone away.
