Hello and welcome!
I'm not sure if I can help you much but I did want to welcome you! I'm in a cog fog (similar to your last 4 of 5 symptoms). wish I could help sort it out for you but don't have the concentration at the moment.
I will say some of your symptoms sound familiar to MS while others don not. Have you seen a neurologist yet?
sorry for the short answer, hopefully someone with their full faculties with chime n here with a better answer.
Just remember , you are ALWAYS welcome here. Have you read the Health Pages in the upper right corner of this page? They are located next to the yellow icon. They contain a wealth of information and that may be a good starting point for you.
I wanted to welcome you and not let your post go un noticed. This is the best forum I have found containing lots of people who don't understand what is going on with them.
I myself am diagnosed with MS, but that by no means gives me the answers to the disease.
I am very sorry you are having all of these crazy uncomfortable/painful issues, but I have no ability to give you answers. I can say that there are a few symptoms on your list that do not sound like MS, and may very well be a mimic.
If you look on the top right of the forum you will find a link for health pages. In there is a list of MS mimics. Maybe this list will help you find answers to your suffering.
I know you will be welcome here and maybe you will even find someone who knows more about what you are experiencing. You will definately find people who understand :)
Hi and welcome, emz.
It certainly sounds as if you're having seizures. MedHelp has an Epilepsy forum, and you might get some good information from posting there too. Just to see what the experienced people there have to say.
I'm no MS expert, but still I think that what you describe doesn't sound like MS. So many illnesses can cause symptoms such as yours, but MS doesn't involve joint problems, swelling, or hair falling out, among other things. Have you been screened for lupus or fibromyalgia?
hi and thank you..
ive been seen a numerous times by a neuroogist and again jus get fobbed off, its only recently they decided to second test me think maybe to shout me up.. ive a follow up appointment in october , and am waitin on an EMG appointment.
my mom was diagnosed with MS 2 yrs ago followin an MRI scan but doctors hav now changed their minds without givin her any proper reason to why, she also suffers strokes too. but she doesnt suffer from the seizure part like me.
ive asked about MS cus of my mother but doctors wont look at that. ive already looked at the mimic thing givin a run down of MS and thats kinda why i joined - i marked off all but two.. :-(
ess - thing with my docs/neuro they wont consider anythin - accordin to them im some wat normal - yet they cant explain or giv me answers to why im experiencin wat i am..
thanx again all who commented..
