Long scary journey

Post by Unemployed » Sun Nov 12, 2017 6:20 am

I am a 62 female who for 8 years or longer have had strange symptoms that's say MS. My doctor has told me for years it is stress. Well a few months back I quit my stressful job as 1. I could not take it anymore, I would get home sit down and sleep wake up to eat dinner and be in bed asleep by 9pm. 2. This last year I seem unable to complete anything in my job which frustrated me more. My doctor over the years has run all kinds of tests for MS and sent me to 3 different neurologist. All negative for everything except vascular issues. However all theses symptoms are getting worse and I must say little things set me back for weeks. Example I just had first stage of breathing test, within 24 hours extreme fatigue/virtigo/waves in head/increased numbness in hands, feet and now face/increased twitching/ headache. Like everyone I don't want this disease or hounestly any other but I want to wake up and not lay there waiting to see what the day will be like. I am looking for a new job as indeed to work financially and mentally,but have to say each time I get an interview I find reasons why I can't make the next step.

Hi Unemployed,

There is not any symptom that is exclusive to MS. Many conditions, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, some medications and mental health disorders can all cause symptoms similar to MS.

Have you had the vascular issues treated? With 3 different Neurologists and negative testing for MS it would be highly unlikely you have MS.

Vascular are life issues of exercise and eat well and not treated until 75-80 % blockage. The tingling, dizzy, short of breath, fatigue and the wave are the scary things
