Could someone please give me some kind of input? Of whether they think this is a good chance of being MS? I am about losing my mind not knowing what the hell is wrong with me and I feel like im literally going crazy!! I have (as of right now the earliest waiting on word from my dr) an appointment next tues and I am trying to get as many opnions as possible and how I should go about talking to my dr?
Fall 2004- (first most memorable symptom appeared)
Right leg went extremely weak and *wobbly* and I had the worst time walking.
Thoughout the yrs-
Fatigue that never really seemed to improve and over the last month has gotten horrible. I've been able to stay up longer sometimes but I can still wake up to eat what my boyfriend has cooked us and then go right back to sleep when im done eating.
Concentration is poor and has been poor only I thought it was add/adhd...Now im wondering (tho I WAS diagnosedat age 14) since it comes and goes and sometimes get's worse than other times cause when I told a shrink that yrs ago they told me Add/adhd didn't just come and go.
Tingly/Pins n Needles all over my body.
Tingling esp in my fingertips (always assumed that was from panic attack although at the time I wasn't even anxoious until I realized they were tingling then I'd start panicking.)
Restless legs/body that get's really bad while laying down.
My muscles feel like they are jerking on the inside of my body a LOT.
Sometimes my fingers will get *stuck* as I say cause I don't know how to describe it. Thought it was just bad arthritis from cracking my knuckles even though I AM only 25.
Balance is and has been horrible for quite sometime.
Sometimes I get so spaced out I haven't got a clue *where* i am. I mean I know about where I am but not in the sense that I could say for example find the car. It takes me a long time to learn new directions. I have forgotten how to get places in the city I was born and raised in. People can tell me something a few times and it won't sink in. I can be having a conversation with someone and space out so much that I haven't got a clue what they are saying when I get back into the convo. Even writing this is becoming difficult for me cause I can't stay on a thought for very long without losing it.
I've developed this stutter on occasion.
My eye sight has been bad for quite sometime but now it seems like it is getting worse cause I can't even read certain things because they all look bunched together and some what blurry.
Ive had headaches for a long time but now it seems lik i have at least one on a daily basis. I feel that feeling like when your head is upside and the blood rushes to your head every so often for no real reason. I have this pressure type pain at the top of my neck and sometimes my whole head.
I've been having a hard time thnking of words lately like I will point at something and say That or this instead of what t is because I can't think of anything other than that or whatever to say.
Dizziness a lot and every so often I fel like the room is spinning.
There are more I am sure but I can't think of them ..... Oh wait....
If I told a cold floor with my foot even if my foot is in a sock wearing slippers it send a shooting pain through my foot thats incredibly intense kind of feels like a piercing shooting through your foot maybe?
I can't type for crap anymore either im CONSTANTLY messing up and it feels somewhat like my fingers have a stuttering problem lol
I feel incredibly detatched from my body at points as well. Kind of like when I look down at my hands they dont seem like mine. Can't xplain that one much.
Texting has become a nightmare cause I leep screwing up the numbers/letters.
