Hello I have been reading peoples story's and questions on this for a month now.
I have SO MANY of your symptoms. I'm a 48 year old and my story is: ( VERY LONG Sorry )
Since 2004 I have had several issues, 1st was Severe sleep apnea Dx, then Blood clots in both legs in 2005, then dx'd with Hypo thyroid, in 05, I was feeling pretty good for about a two year span from "07" to "09"
except constant issues with my legs. feeling very tired and swelling.
In "09" I started having more issues, when I moved from MI to AZ. I started to get sick a lot and had kidney stones, then 2010 I started having a lot of back pain and left side pain on and off, So i ignored it until I doubled over. in 2011 I had a 13" colon removal from severe Diverticulitis! then 2012 I had severe cramping and BAD menstrual, so I had to have a Full Hysterectomy ( Da Vinci robot ) less aggressive method ?
so I was to go home the following day Well that did not happen, turns out the DR. perforated my Bowel.
so I was on deaths door for 3 weeks. respiratory failure, you name it. well fast forward.
My Dad's mom died from MS back in the 50's ? any way, I have read it could be hereditary, also could carry the gene and it could lye dormant but a huge trauma to your body can activate it.
since 2012 my issues really started. Major fatigue, respiratory issues, Numbness in hands, legs, Chronic pain, all over, it feels like my body is in a Warp. nerves feel like there in over drive all day. vertigo, abnormal gait, blurred vision, shooting pain, Dx'd with fibromyalgia. since October 2014 I started having tremors, now really bad, I have good days but mostly bad. it effects my voice, My Primary said she thought it was PD, but my Neuro said NO, I've had EMG testing, no damages to nerves or muscle, I had a MRI and Dr. said he seen white spots, but he thinks. it's from the Fibro. next week I do a Lumbar . so any help or anyone who has MS did you or do you have this issue ????
P.S. I know I missed a lot of my issue's but gave the Primary info. LOL
