I am in my late 40's and have recently been told by my Dr. that he believes that I have MS. If this is the case it would certainly answer a lot of question as to why my health has beem so poorly . Over the past 12 yr or more it has gone from bas to worse but due to other major health problems I think things were over
looked . I have chronic pain syndrome as I have had three major failed back sugeries with damage to my nerve in my left leg and for this I wear a brace. I have had numerous bouts where I have been in bed with almost paralyzed limbs , my family needs to move them in order for me to get them going, I have vision like ghosting ,
poor visionat times that seems to improve somewhat, weakness in my limbs,spasmsin my legs and hands, facial pains, drooling which I am not sure is part of the this, tipsy, my bablance is very poor, bladder and bowel problems , I get up usually 5-6 times a night, have many urinary track infections, head tremor, I didn't know
it and tell me, afer a bath or shower I feel awful drained and numb like,my words get very mixed up and my memory is absolutely awful, I can't at times remeber even such things like the Lords Prayer and I say it
usually twice a day and sometimes more, and the list goes on and on. I hate having to go to DR. and believe me I have had my fair share and I would rather not go but if there is treatment fot it then I will go for help.I just am worried that if they can't find anything in an MRI what do they do from there? I went through my own He-- because when I went for a
myelogram and nothing showed I had an awful time trying to find out where the problem was and it took a long tlong time , many tests and many doctors.I also have one other symptom that I would like to know if it is significant, at times I have a feeling like there is something running down my leg and there is nothing. It is so weird. If you could write me back i would appreciate
it, thanks.
