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 issues, when I moved from MI to AZ. I started to get sick a lot and had kidney stones, Dx Hashimoto Disease
In 2011 I had a 13" colon removal from severe Diverticulitis! then 2012 I had to have a Full Hysterectomy ( Da Vinci robot ) less aggressive method ?
I was to go home the following day Well that did not happen, turns out the DR. perforated my Bowel.
It was 3 weeks of ICU. Respiratory failure, Sepsis and Induced coma.
( 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.
My nerves feel like there in over drive all day.
Vertigo, abnormal gait, Severe weakness, blurred vision, shooting pain, and stiffness, Dx'd with fibromyalgia.
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 Car pol tunnel .
I had a MRI and Dr. seen white spots in the front ( he thinks. it's from the Fibro.)
On the 28th I go in for Lumbar Puncture.
Help!!!! 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
