I have been fighting "possible MS" for about a year. My current neurologist hasn't given me a diagnosis I'm so frustrated because I well tell him a symtom I'm having and he will tell me that doesn't have anything to do with MS. For example I have had some bladder issues, like just losing control a couple of times. So I take his word and go see my familey doctor and she will say oh that's the MS. Then I look on web MD and there it is as well.
Here are my symtoms: three brain lesions, trigiminal neuralgia on right side of face and mouth, ringing in my ears, vertigo, tremors on right hand, extremely weak in the heat and tired to the point of almost collapsing in the afternoon, my eyes dilate at different times, one big one little.cramps in my feet legs and hands. My tongue is numb on one side, my spinal tap came back weekly positive form ms a year ago, one ms plaque, I show loss of cognitive abilities when I had a Nero syc test done, depression and anxiety.
What more does he need to diagnose me??
Should I just give up on this doc and see another one?View Thread
I'm the same way, I actually get so bad I have to just go inside and lay down. I'm so sick of being inside. I have always been an outdoors person until MS hit me a year ago. Do feel kinda like your so drained its hard to even sit up?View Thread
This is not necessarily true. My Spinal tap came back positive for MS and I have 5 brain lesions and one small plaque and my neurologist still hasn't diagnosed me with MS due to lack of other symptoms. But they are treating me for MS. It's frustrating not knowing for sure. I need peace of mind so I can try and move on with life. My advice is to just keep going to Nero and dont give up.
Since I have memory issues now as well I have been writing down all symptoms and issue's I have every day to give the Doc next time I see him. View Thread
