New, Please help me- need to repeat my MRI?
First of all, I really appreciate you reading this. I'll make this as brief as possible - I'm almost 34 years old... about 2 years ago I developed Optic Neuritis in my left eye. Not long after, I got it in my right eye. I had all the MS tests - spinal tap was negative and the mri had a couple spots that I was told were not "ms-like". I have also developed anti-bodies to my Thyroid (hashimoto's) - but Lupus was ruled out by the blood test. Here is my question. For the past couple months I have been feeling generally very dizzy - it's the feeling like someone just spun me in circles then stopped. I have tingling in both hands at least once a day and the shakes when the tingles happen. - I am very fatigued and have also started twitching (especially at night- bedtime) - I also have some bad leg cramping. I have some abdominal discomfort on the left side that just started today, and my left arm and hand went quite numb. I phoned my internist who said I should immediately see a neurologist - is it even possible that I could have MS show up in tests only a year and a half after showing negative? Anyone have something like that happpen? Perhaps you could suggest other things that could cause these symptoms? I really appreciate your comments - I'm a bit scared.
