Hi everyone.. Maybe someone can tell me if I am going out of my mind.
Everything started in 17 yrs ago with an Optic Neuritis, OMG having that is scary.. I lost vision and pain in the affected eye, to this day it is still blurry, and still have periphirical problems. I never recovered 100%. After that episode, i did not have any other symptoms, 4 yrs after, my eye started acting up again but that time I didn't get the asscoiated pain, so I went to see an Ophtalmologist who then referred me to a Neurologist. The neuro had me go for an MRI, the result was normal, nothing to be seen. So I went about my daily life. Ever since my optic neuritis, if its gets too hot or my body temp goes up, my vision gets blurrier.. I can't stand hot summer, i get very tired.
After that second episode, I had my second child, after 2 or 3 months after giving birth, my legs started to tingle, it felt like an electrical current going thru my legs all the time and then it stopped, 6 months after that I started getting migraines (never had a headache before in my life) so I went to see my Neuro again, I was then complaining of losing sensation (numbness) in my hands, sharp pain like an electical shock or stabbing to the head, dizzness, and electrical current sensation in my legs, she sent me for my 2nd MRI, that time it showed 2 lesions, so Neuro said it was do to the migraines.
5 yrs after the 2nd MRI, my legs are always getting this feeling (electrical current sensation and weakness), the stabbing pain to my head comes but more prononced in the fall where I can get them more often, numbness of my tongue and hands from time to time and pain in the back of my legs behind the knees, it feels like someone hit the back of my legs (knees) with a baseball bat and it also feels tight, dizzness, burning sensations usually on my sides, lower back pain and numbness of part of my lower face, so after 5 yrs from my 2nd MRI, my Neiro sent me for a 3rd MRI, I got the results a couple of weeks ago and now it is showing several new punctate and also showing my old 2 unchanged lesions. Now they documented my optic neuritis saying it is smaller, etc plus associated with the several new lesions, the radiologist is suggesting demyelinating desease. Now my Neuro wants me to do an MRI of the spin and blood work and she also is referring me to an MS Specialist.. Should I think this is what I have ? Have any of you ever experienced these symptoms?
Thank you for your answers in advance!!
