Hi guys. I went to two of my neuros since I found out I have stenosis and compressionof my c spine and both said this is not the cause of all my problems, though my GP thinks it is related to some and he is sending me to NS for an eval. One of the neuros said I have a chemical imbalance, that its anxiety and that I need medication for this. When I asked her about MS she looked at me and said YOU DO NOT HAVE MS, YOU HAVE ANXIETY. I asked if she was 100%sure, and she said YES. The other neuro said he thinks its anxiety too. Now here is my dilema. As in all cases, usually drs will ask if you are under stress. Well, yes...I was when a lot of this started, found out my dad had term pc (he has now passed), so I guess I feel like both are brushing it off onto that. If I told them no, would they have done more tests of given me more insight?
The neuros both also said since my MRI was clear (of head and full spine) I do not have MS. However, I have read in many situations people have MS and its not showing on the MRI.
I just dont know what to do. For 7 months I have had eye pain pressure which lately seems worse in my right eye--granted that could be from my spine. Outside of that, I literally woke up one day and just had pains jumping all over my body-fingers, toes, ankles-two days after the onset of the pains the vibrating/tingling started on and off in my foot. Now for 2 months EVERY DAY I have non stop muscle fascilations all over my body. The only thing that does not seem to fit MS is extreme joint cracking that I now have.
I just dont know where to turn. If I have MS I want to start treatment. I am driving myself crazy and just dont know what to think..if its MS, anxiety or something else. I havent had one day in 5 months where I have felt healthy since I woke up with all of this jumping around my body.
Thanks for listening.................
