| | I am so confused (sorry...long)
I believe I am new to this board and am looking for some help. I have Fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed 2.5 years ago. My pain had continuously increased, and my abilitiy to be active has decreased.
A little over 1 year ago, my doc had some concern that some of my symptoms indicated a neurologic problem. I saw a neurologist and had my eyes checked. I had an EEG, EMG, brain and cervical MRI, and evoked potential test. They found nothing.
6 months ago I hurt my big toe, left foot. A series of x-rays and an MRI showed nothing. I was in a cast for 2 months and have done 1.5 months of PT. I still have severe pain in the toe. My left foot and lower leg is discolored and always cold.
I feel like I have begun to lose feeling in my body, on the surface. I have also been having some urinary incontinace. I also am badly constpated. It has been blamed on my pain meds, but I never feel like I have to go, and it is hard for me to feel myself using the muscles necessary to have a BM.
Then there is my eyesight. I not only see floaters, but at times I seem to have temporary blind spots. I have a hard time looking at certain contrasing colors.
I don't know what to do, but I know I don't want to go thru another battery of tests just to find out nothing is wrong. I am scheduled for some kind of doppler test to check for blood flow problems.
I know you all can't diagnose me, but could any of you let me know if any of the things I have described are symptoms you have had or that are known symptoms of MS?
I am at such a loss of what direction to go in right now. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!
Many soft hugs,
