I am in a similar situation to you, I think.
I had one pretty awful attack back in March. My first one. Am pretty much recovered now apart from slight pins amd needles in fingers and toes on left side and sometimes feel fatigued.
Anyway, had neuro apppointment, had an MRI, one lesion showing so not enough for a dx. Have also had lumbar puncture, VEP and bloods taken. I go back for follow-up appointment and tests results next week.
I came here to this site during the attack because everything else I had read about didn’t quite fit.
I still thought it could be something else (something more simple and treatable) but my neuro, at my last appointment, hit me with those words ‘Multiple Sclerosis’ so even though I had already found very similar symptoms myself, it was still a bolt from the neuro when I was wanting reassurance that this wasn’t MS.
She didn’t sugar-coat it. She said she was pretty sure. So, it’s just a waiting game really to see if I have a relapse.
Very hard to go back to living your life as before when you have this hanging over your head and I have dealt with it as I usually do and have become a little more reclusive and closed off to real-life people.
Oh, and comfort eating! Not good for the old waist line. I need to reign that it pretty quick smartish.
