I'm writing from the UK and this is my first post.
Been reading the posts here which have been really helpful.
As yet I am undiagnosed, but have had a brain MRI and a nerve conduction test in left foot/leg (have lost feeling). I was referred to a Consultant Neurologist by my Neuro Surgeon (have 2 previous spinal surgeries for degenerative disc disease). I have been informed that there are "some areas" showing on my brain, but I won't get the full picture until tomorrow when I see the Neurologist.
The worst symptoms for me are extreme dizziness/loss of balance, a horrible buzzing/tremor type feeling going right through my core and more recently continuous tinnitus. I also have constant pins and needles in my left foot/leg/hand/arm, electric shock type pains in my lower left leg/foot/toes , blurry/shaky vision, confusion and sometimes difficulty swallowing.
Does anyone else experience these and are these typical of MS, and if so do you know of anything that will lessen the symptoms? I am unable to work at the moment as my GP and employers consider it too dangerous because I am prone to falling over a lot.
In a way I hope the diagnosis is Ms cos at least then I will know what is going on, at the moment I just feel like i'm going mad !
It would be great if anyone can share similar experiences with me.
