bugsy, soo sorry you are experience all of this at once, im sure its very overwelming. I too have had major bouts with constipation, the longest one time was 30 days. OMG what terrible pain. My husbands regular, is like every day to 2x's a day, me every 2 or 3 days and thats regular for me. If I notice its longer, i take a stool softener. And wow, the constipate then diarrea, yep I get that too. sometimes dont know from one day to the next. Its very frustrating.
Try getting relief on one symptom at a time, if you can eliminate a few you might feel better. I too would have some vision issues, so I went and had my eyes checked. Maybe some of the problems there, is you need a stronger prescript
ion or a new one. I could relieve some of your stress and other symptoms by you taking control. I know it did for me. I was having problems went the the eye dr, and it was fine. So when it came time to a dr or neuro appt, if they started to say ok get your eyes ck'd maybe thats causing some of your vision or balance issues, i could say already done, look for something else. I also found that the more i took control and persistant that they find out what was wrong the better I felt. The symptoms didnt go away, but i knew i was doing all that i could to find out what was happening.
Early on, i had the scalp thing your talking about
, to me it was like my scalp and hair were trying to crawl off my head, very annoying. I started taking trileptal and for some reason that went away. Sometimes I take one benydryl when my antsy, and skin sensations start acting up really bad. It does seem to help. I dont know if its the med or me just beliving its helping. But as my neuro told me, if it makes me feel better and an approved drug its ok, in small doses. he said sometimes just the piece of mind is all we need for a symptom to go away. i love my neuro. lol
well i think ive rambled on enough. and know you are not alone in your quest. we are here supporting you for me my dx of MS, is well rather a blessing, at least i know what it is and can take some control. I felt the worst when i didnt know what was wrong with me, and felt it was all in my head. and many of us know exactly what you feel regardless of if the symptoms match what we have or not. the not knowing is what makes us all the same, at some point we all were at that same spot you are. what makes it easier is knowing your not alone in this journey, there are people the understand and care whats happening to you
see more rambling, but thats what i do hehe. keep us posted and keep your chin up, you can get through it
