Bummer on the new symptoms. I'm sorry.
If it were me I'd want to be seen by a neurologist and see if a new MRI is in order. The hyperintense area you had before were not classic for MS or they'd have diagnosed you as these days clear MRI lesions are justification to put you on CRABs. But new symptoms and a pattern that starting to look relapsing is suspect.
I hope you get answers soon so you can decide what to do and get moving forward! Not knowing is its own kind of heck.
I saw a NEW neurologist. He ordered an EMG that i should have April 7.
Then i will see him on end of April for results.
I'm scanning old MRI and exam i had for him
Then i will prepare a chart (symptoms/time) to show the progression.
You know ... just talking is not enough. A chart is clear and precise (should be my engineering background?
I'll ask a new MRI.
Sure it's not the USUAL pattern, but pattern is a TREND only. There should be some peoples out of this trend. That may explain why i don't have trouble walking, may be, and it's mainly paresthesia.
By the way i had vertigo many time unexplained (once in the company, an other time walking on the road, ..) then back to normal.
I felt down twice in my bathroom suddenly then back to normal ...
And worst, this pain i had in 2004 all around my chest like i was "crushed" for hours (i took plenty of Tylenol ... nothing) look like this "MS hug"
. This thing is only seen with MS as i understand.
Anyway, I'm not anxious at all, just "fed up" (sorry) of not been properly diagnosed and treated as "psy" what ever it is. I was to the point that i would prefer to die than to suffer all the way long like this. For me, not knowing, even if it is a dead sentence is worst than staying like this (you know, engineers like to understand
Every time i phone to my mother for example, what to say? don't know where I'm going? .. and me, can i go on holiday in France for example (the last relapsing was this summer when i was in France!)?
Thank you for your response.
PS: I saw the paper with this venous problem .. so i started to take some aspirin (not a lot) ... will see.
