had my first episode about
6 months ago where I had pressure in my head along with dizzyness, ringing in my ears, wierd attack with the fast hearbeat and shortness of breath. My bp was 150 over 105 at that time.
They gave me bp pills and sent me home.
Soon after I started getting pains in my back and kidneys and arms and legs.
Urine frequent and clear.
Like having the flu.
I went back to my doc and he ran many blood tests and all were neg including ana and lyme.
Had doppler and echo.
Doppler was neg and echo showed slight leakage in valves.
Did catscan and mri.
They found several lesions on my mri in deep white matter and suggested ms as possibility.
Went to a neuro and passed all tests until he looked at my mri.
He couldn't believe that there was 7 lesions in my brain.
I've been reading all over the web for info but can't find answers.
My questions are as follows:
Is dizzyness a symptom of ms and does it last for months?
I have wierd feelings in my brain that I never had.
Sometimes I feel like I'm leaving this planet.
My vision seems to be getting blurry at times.
My ears ring constantly with ear pain at times.
I have body aches in my back,legs and chest.
They gave me clonazapam for anxiety and they seem to work when I feel like I'm getting that wierd attack with the fast hearbeat and shortness of breath.
My neuro wants to do a spinal tap but I do not.
Is there any other way or testing for a diag for ms?
I hear spinal taps are old time medicine anymore.
Can anyone help me here?
