Hi leydengs, and welcome to the forum!
I'm so very sorry you're going through this.....but I hope that you'll feel some sort of comfort knowing that you're definitely not alone. Many on this forum are also in diagnostic limbo.
Unfortunately this is the way of autoimmune diseases. There are so many AI diseases out there that can cause similar symptoms, and getting a firm diagnosis can be a journey lasting through many years (and many different doctors!).
Of course MS is the prime suspect for causing symptoms like yours, but please don't neglect any of the other possibilities.
I myself have every one of your symptoms. And all of my MRIs have been clean.
As it turns out, celiac disease, lupus, Behcet's disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Graves disease, and Sjogren's Syndrome can cause some or all of those symptoms. And that's only a partial list of AI diseases that could be to blame. And things become even more complicated if fibromyalgia and/or more than one AI disease is involved.
You can see in my signature line all of the things I've been diagnosed with over the past two years. Plus I've just been diagnosed with Lyme disease! And guess what? Lyme disease can cause every single one of those symptoms as well!! Lyme can even cause brain lesions!
And I would NEVER have expected to be diagnosed with Lyme....I'm not the outdoorsy type.
Well this post is too long now....I apologize. But I wanted to get all of this stuff out there for you to think about
. The world of AI disease is far more complicated than meets the eye. Symptoms of various AI diseases tend to overlap, but different people may have the exact same
diagnosis and display very different symptoms. And then there are other things like fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, even viruses such as Epstein-Barr (EBV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV), which can produce terrible, debilitating symptoms such as the ones in your list.
I hope that you get your answers very soon.....that you DON'T have to wait for years to find out what's wrong with you!
