Whether I am seeing spots, or going numb/feeling heavy, feeling extremely lightheaded, weird pressure, or SOMETHING is always going on and not feeling right.
Thank you for the advice about the lumbar puncture. Depending on what my results are for my MRI in August, I am sure the LP is in my near future and will keep your advice in mind. Sorry you had to go through that on top of everything else.
I know the problem is I feel like I am going crazy, because I know that MS is so different for each person but there are common symptoms that are present in majority of those diagnosed. Right now MS is the only thing that my neurologist is saying it could be because they have ruled out the other autoimmune diseases, but I guess it could always be another mimic.
Well, there are many worse things to be diagnosed with at least! When I was finally diagnosed with MS I was relieved, having read up on all the other terrible conditions that it might have been. And at least with not-too-severe MS CCSVI treatment may prove to be viable (in my opinion it has already but others here will hate me say this, especially to someone who has not yet received a definitely diagnosis) and you may be able to say bye bye to it forever!
Thanks for your commiserations regarding the LP of mine but I'm over it now! I should have stayed in bed instead of staggering down the street to the supermarket, that was the problem..
In fact walking from the hospital to the underground station was like climbing a mountain now that I remember it.
