I am very confused at the moment and am not sure who to turn to for advice so i thought i would ask here, i am a 33 year old woman and have been experiencing symptoms over the past few months that i know are not normal for me. They include balance issues, i lose my balance sometimes and nearly fall flat on my face, i get dizzy and this happens at any time during the day, i have muscle spasms and twitches mostly at night, i am experiencing stiffness in my hands and i sometimes find it difficult to write, i also have a sore ankle and know that i haven't done anything to injure it, i am very tired, more than usual (i have sleep aponea), i suffer from depression and have for years, it takes me forever to try and pee, i can sit on the tiolet for 10 minutes before i actually begin to pee (too much information i know
) i have blurry vision and and am sick of the headches i get as well. I have visited the doctor, and all she talked about was ways to help with the constipation i experience, she also sent me for a blood test to see if i have any markers for an autoimmune disorder (i have no idea what she is talking about really and am hoping for some advice)
I have no idea what is going on with me except that i know that i do not feel normal and i just want a doctor to take me seriously, i am sick of explaining all of my symptoms to doctors and getting looked at like this is all something i am imagining. I know my body and it doesn't feel right, i joined this forum because many of my symptoms pointed at MS, although i am not trying to self diagnose myself, i thought it might be a good idea to get advice from people who have gone through this, maybe you guys might have advice about what i should do now or if there is anything i should be asking or saying to the doctor. As i said i dont want to barge into the doctors office and say i think i have MS and you have to do something about it, i just want my doctor to consider other possibilities instead of there being 10 different things wrong with me that maybe some of my symptoms MAY be linked together, i don't know. i apologise for the post that is all over the place but i'm a bit confused at the moment. Any advice??
