Hi i am new here, and from the uk
I had an MRI done a few years ago, and my results were that the nuro said, that he couldnt say yes or no, that ive got MS (what ever that meant), my mum has had MS for nearly 25 years now.
Anyway back to my question, yesterday i had a strange experiiance, i was sat down and all of a sudden, it felt like both my eyes were going from side to side really fast, also both my legs started to kind of "jump about" like they were beeing hit with electric shocks, i have vertigo on and off at different times, but this didnt feel the same, has anyone had this happen to them?
I have an apponitment at the MS clinic on the 20th of this month, for more tests, as i am haveing other things happen too, loss of bladder control, stuttering, legs and arms feeing really heavy, and another strange feeling of, something warm/hot beeing poured on the back of my thigh, i even touch the spot, just to see if anything is there.
Any information on my eye question, i would be really greatfull
thankyou :-)

Hiya Karon,

i am from the UK too (Scotland) I was diagnosed with MS last year and the problem i had with my eyes were the moved up and downn on there own really fast (rapid eye movement) I went to docs before I got on my medication and there wasnt anything they could do, they told me to let it run its course. they did however give me betahistine, which is usually to treat vertigo and once I had been on them a few days my eyes calmed down and it lasted about 8days.

My mum has minears disease (rininging in the ears) and her eyes move fast from side to side occasionally, especially if she moves to quick or is stressed out.

I had 2 MRI Scans done then a lumbar puncture before my MS was diagnosed but the sysmptoms vary and because there so much like other illness it is hard to diagnose.

Hang on in there and let me know how you get on.

Take care

Meche xx
