I am newly diagnosed and waiting to be referred to the neuroinflammatory clinic, so just jumping ahead and asking questions on here.
I’ve had many symptoms over the last 6-8 years and some I am now able to say were MS. I just wondered if the breathing issues I have had could also be MS?
I wake up suddenly, usually just as I’m about to drop of to sleep, gasping for breath, like I’d forgotten to breath? I’ve also had it in the night too when deeply asleep. It’s not all the time. I may have it for a few weeks, 4 times a night and then it goes and might not come back for a few months or longer. I’ve also had in the past something that I can only describe as air hunger. I can breathe fine and normally, no blocked nose or any feelings on my chest or lungs, sats are normal, but it’s like I’m just not quite getting enough air on each breath and have to take a deep breath every minute or so. It’s very unsettling. Over the years I have been to the urgent care centre twice because it really frightened me. They prescribed Prednisolone in a small dose for 5 days and it went away. It has been put down to allergies, but I’m not so sure?
Anyone else with anything similar?
