So a few months back I went to the ent because of a recommendation from my gp to see what is going on with the ringing in my ears that's happened for about a year now. While there, I happened to mention my long lasting balance problems so the ent ordered balance testing/vng. I thought it was from some minor thing like ear infections when I was younger, but it showed peripheral vertigo on my right side and central vertigo on my left side. As I understand it, it is unusual to have both, so research hasn't been much help. I was started on a beta blocker for migraines, but that and the tricyclic I'm on for sleep that's also used for migraines don't do much of anything for them and I had migraines every day for about a month until a couple weeks ago. After that, I got a referral for an mri with and without contrast which happened a couple days ago, with the results being shown at my follow up nest week.
All of this is stressful enough, but my symptoms that have happened since my vng tests in October are what are troubling me. My balance has always been bad (can't ride a bike, go down stairs one at a time, can't look at the sky without feeling like I'm falling), but lately it's been worse and a bit more like the definition of vertigo and things looking like they're moving. I've had ear pain and face pain on the same side, one day extreme enough I almost went to the emergency room. I've had tingling in my hands and feet and varying body temp that goes from hot to cold suddenly, often feeling a lot worse when hot. I had really bad fatigue for a couple weeks and felt exhausted as soon as I got out of bed and felt like someone was pushing down on my shoulders when standing and some muscle spasms and pain in random spots not just my joints. My back, knees, ankles, just joints in general hurt and crack more often. My vision has gotten a bit blurred, and I've had some double vision and one instance of my eyes shaking so much I couldn't see the alarm clock a foot away from my bed. My memory hasn't ever been the best, but I keep forgetting words for things or what I'm saying as I say it or why I went into a room or opened a tab. When I'm talking sometimes I forget what I'm saying or what I just said, leaving the thought unfinished or the grammar being butchered. I'm sure anyone I talk to has heard me say "what was I saying" or "what's that called" a lot lately. I'm probably leaving something out, but again, memory and brain fog is ridiculous.
So, I am not really looking for a diagnosis on here, I know that's not really possible. I'm just wondering if this sort of stuff sounds like what happens with ms in general or in younger people with ms (I'm only twenty). I know having migraines and headaches probably complicate the issue. So, any advice? whether if it's advice for dealing with what the results of the mri could be, getting diagnosed, anything really.
