I have gone to a Neurologist and he said everything was fine. I told him about the numbness in my hands, fingers, feet and toes. I told him about my dizziness, off balance stuff, like walking into walls, doors, cubicles, you name. Constantly tripping and banging into things (I am so bruised). I had an EMG study on my hands and he said there was something definitely wrong with my Central Nervous System (this was after the Neurologist). Since then, my left leg has been going totally numb. The headaches are horrible, my swallowing problems (dysphagia) are getting worse. I also feel like I am going to pass out in the shower if it is too hot. Recently my vision has been getting blurry and I have had excruciating shooting pains in my right eye. One other thing, my lower back all the way down my legs get this very heavy feeling. I haven't had a spinal tap or anything major to diagnose MS except for the things they do in an office visit. I CANNOT TAKE ANYMORE. I also suffer from Fibromyalgia, Diffuse Esophageal Spasms (extremely rare)..imagine your most worst muscle spasm ever and that's what I get in my esophagus. I'm to the point where I actually want my doctor to remove the whole esophagus. I just had Botox injections AGAIN and AGAIN they didn't relieve a thing. I have had so many tests just for the spasms that I wasn't noticing all the other symptoms. I am in Surgical Menopause, have and underactive Thyroid or and had to have my Thymus Gland removed due to a tumor. I also have Raynaud's Phenomenon and Carpal Tunnel in both wrists. Also, I have really quick fainting spells where I am walking one minute and on the ground the next. I don't remember these. PLEASE, SOMEONE GIVE ME DIRECTION. I live in Pennsylvania. If anyone knows of a really good Neurologist, please let me know. I AM DESPERATE!!!! I feel so alone and I don't know if I can take anymore. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!
Just a footnote, I have no one that even remotely tries to understand what I am going through, which includes a husband and three teenage sons.
