My MS was diagnosed first. It will be 6 years this comming September. Originally, my symptoms were totally numbness on my right side which came on over night basically. I did have an MRI done which was the first test my PCP ordered and they found a 3x3 cm lesion in my brain. A regular or normal MS lesion is usually the size of a pen point...so I was sent to a neurologist who then referred me to a neurosurgon for a biopsy as they were looking at the lesion as a tumor. However, pathology on it came back as MS.
My heart rate before the pacemaker was in the 20's for about two weeks before they implanted it. This kinda of came on all at once too...I woke up one day and everything was blurry, and I was very dizzy. I ended up passing out in my living room floor before getting ready for work. My mom was to come over that morning to pick up my cat to take to the vet...very lucky indeed as she found me on the floor. That was last year.
I still have problems with my blood pressure dropping which I cant regulate too well. The medications I take for it helps greatly but the diease sometimes gets the better of me. And if I am around anyone who is sick or if I do too much then it tends to drop. The lowest it has been is 50's/30's ...but it normally doesnt get that low it will go 70's/50's and I am still passing out when I stand up due to not enough blood flow to my brain. It really sucks.
