I am feeling really lost at the moment. I got diagnosed in Dec 2011 after lots of nagging of my neurologist. I feel like I really coerced him into giving me my diagnosis and maybe he made a mistake - does everyone feel like this?
Anyway after spending 4 years being made to feel like I was imagining my symptoms - It is now very hard to even for me to take my own symptoms seriously.
The problem I am having is that I am really struggling at work. I don’t want to give up work - i think it keeps me sane and I am only 32 and I think I have some good years ahead of me - Also I need the money.
However I am struggling with the work load, the responsibility ( my memory is awful and I get very foggy headed and dizzy). I am often the most senior nurse on shift and I just feel very overwhelmed.
My work have been very supportive and I now only do 8 hour shifts or 13 hour night shifts and I only work 15 hours.
I have tried telling myself to stop whinging and just get on with it! I just don’t think I can. As my symtoms are mild and transient I feel like a fraud as on a good day I am good but on a bad day I am useless. I don’t what the solution is or who to talk too.
I hope that makes sense x
oh and could you tell me do these sound like day to day MS symptoms or something unrelated.
Foggy head / feel drunk - this is generally when I am post a 13hr shift.
leg pain - mainly thigh and one sided - like a burning.
These tend to be things that bug me a couple of times a week not when I am having relapse.
