Melissa – Start with a GP or internist who sees himself as a "disease detective"; establish a baseline with a thorough physical exam including blood tests for cortisol, glucose AND insulin, thyroid hormones (don't let the doctor stop with only a test of T4 – to get the whole picture he must test for TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Total T3, Reverse T3, and antithyroid antibodies), vitamins like B,D and minerals (jimmylegs will tell you which ones); keep copies of the test results in your own file. Many people think that MS IS the result of hormone imbalance; others, problems in the thyroid.
Read, read, read. Learn as much as you can about possible diagnoses. By the way, flareups of MS are very common in a mother in the six-month period after the birth of a child; pregnancy itself and breast-feeding seem to make MS symptoms improve for a while. Breast-feeding is so good for baby and for the mother too; it is a definite topic of conversation for you and your physician. Current MS medications have no guarantees.
Just to prove the point that there are many different opinions among the members here, but we express those opinions very civilly, in general (however, emotions do run high at times – we try to keep that in mind): My opinion is just the opposite of Loriyas'… I see no urgency for getting to the doctor, unless you develop an immediate, acute symptom. And I certainly see no urgency about starting any MS meds; they are very strong, and often have their own serious side effects. Can you keep a food diary and note if your dizziness occurs after eating or eating certain foods? In my own experience, I had dizziness after eating anything with sugar (including yummy ribs with BARBECUE SAUCE). It might also be helpful to keep a Journal of your symptoms and when they occur and what you were doing. Even though I do not know you, I think your symptoms are real – they are occurring for a reason – it is only left to find that reason.
In the end, these are YOUR decisions to make, with input from your husband, doctor and the people who know you best. All the best to you.
