What to think?
I am new to board and would like some advice. I have had symptoms for about 6 years now. Know that I have some auto immune condition due to elevated sed rates ranging from 36-74. Had optic neuritis 4 years ago that was not from virus. Had full battery of tests at that time, including MRI of both brain and cervical spine, lumbar puncture, EVP, and a host of others including blood work. Nothing showed up. Had another round of tests recently,including EMG with same results. My symptoms include dizziness, headaches, joint pain, fatique, and many others. In the last 2 years a steady progression of muscle pain caused from muscle "tightness" which now reaches about a 7 by the time I go to bed at night. In the last 3 months I have developed muscle twitches occuring anywhere at about 20-30 a day. These tend to increase with the more active I am.
My family dr. says he believes it is ms and keeps sending me back to neuro. Neuro has done all the tests and keeps sending me back to family dr saying nothing serious is wrong with me. In the mean time I get no relief from the symptoms and constant pain which is starting to effect my quality of life. Is my family dr sending back to the neuro repeatedly because he feels he is missing something or because he doesn't know what else to do with me? Should I get a new dr and start all over again? Your thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
