Good morning ....well I have just been dx with MS. Lesions showed up on my MRI. I have been tested and tested, and seen doctor after doctor for two years - and now finally - a dx. Although I am not pls with the dx, I am so relieved to have finally received a dx... now we can get on with a treatment plan, and loose the worry that has consumed my life for two years.
My very first symptom, as I think back, was about 3.5 years ago where I had double vision out of one eye. They eye specialist wrote it off as nerve damage, and that it should clear in about two weeks - which it did. If only he would have explored this a bit more.
After that, and it was quite a time that had passed, before another incident occurred, which happened to the same eye - this time - it was distorted, blurry vision that lasted for quite a time - on and off for a couple of months.
I noted also that I tired easily, followed by a strange feeling in my head, not really dizzy, kind of a foggy feeling, over all just strange. This has been ongoing, some good days some bad days for the past two years.
Then to follow was muscle pain in my shoulders and neck, lower back, knees, etc. Tingling and numbness stared in both of my hands, and then the final straw was when I bent my head downwards, I get an electrical shock feeling going from my neck all the way down to my toes.
And that brings me to today.....
Have a nice day
