Don't take it personally. I did not respond because I do not have a diagnosis yet and felt like I am not at all an expert on any of this yet. Sorry you felt put off but I am sure it was not intentional.
Anyways, I don't understand why you were dx'd but not treated 11 years ago? How many exacerbations have you had since then?
Several. Fortunately, I have not had numbness in my legs and it has not impaired my walking. Until recently. I am beginning to have extreme weakness and tingling in my legs on exertion and incontinence problems. My vision is also deteriorating rapidly. I am scheduled for VEP early next month. My main symptoms have been with fatigue, which is the worst, and my vision. I have also been recently Dx'd with a moderate hearing loss. No one is sure if it is MS related or not. I have been hoarse for 2 months. I am frustrated as heck, to say the least. I just want some help. I can't get it anywhere!!!!
I'm sorry you feel like we're not responding. Did you get my response? I answered you, as others did and we did not hear from you for a long time. Sometimes if you respond too long in a thread, it gets lost. These forums can be tricky that way. Any oversight was not intentional, I assure you.
We don't want anyone here to feel unimportant. Stay here. I see after looking back in the older thread that you responded to Quix's questions. Perhaps she can look back and give it a fresh look. If that doesn't happen, post again. It has happened to me. I have gotten lost at the end of a thread, sort of poured my heart out, and discovered that I need to start over again with a new post.
Again, I'm so sorry that happened. It shouldn't have. We try to be a community for each other. You have real problems. You're not getting help from your health care providers. That's a problem a lot of us face. We need to support each other. Stick with us, Sugar.
Usually the CCF is pretty good.Do you go to the clinic or mellon institute?
I have sensorineural hearing loss both ears worse on the the right.I have brain stem lesions.
Get copies of all your test results,read them yourself,keep a journal of your symptoms.
I have talked to many with MS and it has taken some 20 years to get a Dx.Look at Terri Garr 20 years.Montel williams 22 Drs.Heck these people are stars and have the financial resources and still I got jacked around by the medical community.
Today neuro's use the McDonalds criteria for scoring MS,if you don't fall into that scale you are basically you know what.A few neuro's still use the poser.
It took me a heck a lot of testing and one good neuro to DX me.
A demyelinating disorder,humm that sure leaves a vague diagnosis.I'd honkin walk back into that neuro's office and ask him after 11 years what and where does this leave you.
With all your symptoms and many increasing I'd be pushing for test ,answers ,something.It is frustrating,I've been there.
Thanks for responding!!! I was under the impression that I would get an email or something if I got a response. I can't remeber to check!!!....LOL I do go to the Mellen Center and I do live in Ohio, it is an hour drive. As a matter of fact I have a urologist appointment there tomorrow. A urodynamic study and a cystoscopy, YUK!!! Hope fully testing will shed some new light on things. Please keep me in your thoughts.
Thanks Again for responding!!! I appreciate all the help and advice I can get!!!
I just recently requested copies of my records. I pretty much told my neuro, either treat me or refer me to someone that will!!! Enough is enough!!! I am having several tests done in the upcoming weeks. Maybe our little conversation stirred up somethings????
