Hi to all,
I have been diagnosed as having neurogenic bladder and also spasticity and a flaccid bladder will not empty correctly,so i have to catherterise 3 times a day will be five next week wen ive been to see urologist Iam on Ditropan patches as cannot tolerate dry mouth.
Urologist says its M.S and so do i will the amount of symptoms i have had over past 18mths Numbness tingling,musclespasms legs back arms,blurred vision,mental and phisical fatigue. I saw neurologist a while bk and they said no as of above perhaps because i went in knowing i have ms and they didnt like it i dont know.I also have memory loss ect sometimes or sometimes speak and get lost for words half way through,ive also get loss of balance wen i walk as if i intend to walk in a stright line i go off balance to the side as if iam going to fall ect i hate it its like trying to get through a maze when they wont listen ive just had vestibular function tests done the part for eyes is fine have to have calorficic test done 16 th jan hope thats fine 2 then they will have to listen.
Could anyone give me any pointers that would direct them in the right direction as iam diabetic type 2 they are trying to put it down to that or what i dont know.
Help please its not that i want to have ms i just know it is bye the symptoms ect.
Here is what I would do: Have the urologist call your neuro and report his findings, and his suspicion that you have MS. Then go back in to see your neuro, report that you have continuing symptoms since seeing him.
How long ago was it that you saw your neuro, and what tests did he run? Can you see a different neuro? Maybe your urologist can suggest a neuro that you could see.
I hope you get some help soon. It has to be a challenge to deal with those problems and diabetes, too.
