Hi im new to this group. after reading many post I find myself with may of the same symptoms.
I have cognitve problems that are becoming worst every week.
I had very sharp pain in the left back side of my head which lasted for a few days then a cool feeling that spread through the left side of my head leaving it feeling heavy, dizzy, numbing, head would cros to left side. A chiropractor says this is in the area of a lesion that i have in the visual pathway. Neurologist called a ice pick headache. this is not an ice pick head, I have ice pick heads for many years know. this is different.
forgetting simple things, cant focus, poor concentration, eyes feel dry, heavy, sticky to blink. some times I see red as green, i went through 3 red lights. I find lately while driving my foot seems to be pushing on the gas paddle without realizing it.
piercing pain in my feet and under my feet, ankles deep pain.
I feel like im walking in quicksand, more lately. calf muscles spams, deep pain in thighs, hip pain especially at night.
My hands go completely numb, tingling, stabbing pain in hands.
left side pain in back shoulder, tightness in ribs, heavy to breath, cant wear no tight clothes.
Fatigue can last for days, depressed from fatigue, eating is to tiring fatigue in jaw. I stop chewing to rest my jaw. tongue numbnes and jaw goes numb.
dizziness is scary will last for hours. room is constantly spinning, this comes mostly in winter.
hearing loss, ringing in ears loud noisy ears.
headaches throughout the year migraines. winter migraine can last up to 5 weeks without relief.
and so on...
I was being seen by a chiropractor who notice something wasnt right. He started to rule different diseases out.
MS was the one he couldnt rule out. I asked a nother chiropractor how can you pick up on a disease by adjusting the spine. She said normal feel of Adjustment would be different. This doctor had picked up on something from the very beginning.
He suggest I do An MRI. They find 6 lesions.
5 in the frontal lobe white matter and one in the visual cortex, visual pathway.
When I was seen by a GP she had me see a neuro. doctor.
He took 4 MRI and a nerve test, He didnt do a spinal tap. MRI found 5-10 lesions in brain. none in spine and nerve test was ok. but he didnt do a spinal tap which I was expecting.
He said the lesions were because I was getting older and all test were normal. I almost fall down was in tears. Not what I was expecting.
Im find everything was normal he said and the bst thing you dont have MS.
My symptoms Ive had since I was 19. at 19 I coldnt walk for 8 hours.
He wouldnt read my history and he dismissed me.
My chiro gave me details of whats going on, he made to much sense.
So im perfectly healthy although I have multiple symptoms that makes life difficult and going to work and taken care of my family.
