I have been dealing with vague symptoms on and off the at least 6 years at least. Moved towns a lot thus did not have a steady doctor.
My mom and grand-ma both have multiple sclerosis, but I must say they are doing pretty well. I am not scared but just would like to know earlier than later if I have it too. I'm 32.
I am wondering if my recent onset of nerve symptoms in my legs, my occasional vagus nerve problems and my supposedly irritable bowel syndrome are all related and all in fact signs or symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.
The symptoms in more details, from most recent.
My latest symptom is: nerve acting up in my left thigh (feels like hot water or ants running).
I feel it everyday while standing or at bed time. At the beginning it was only at night and not every night. Then a few nights I felt this nerve feeling at different places in legs, also felt waves of soreness in legs and numb toes one night. Now is only localized to left thigh and anytime I'M NOT SITTING (which confuses my the physical therapist I started seeing to fix that and chronic back low back pain).
Irritable bowel syndrome
Had episodes of all or individually: nausea few times a day for weeks, extreme burps, diarrhea or constipation, soar throat in morning, painful stomach. Had all tests. Mild gastritis, lower oesophagus sphycter hesitant. Was told GERD (do not beleive I have, took double dose of nexium for months and felt worst), and IBS.
In the past I had episodes of near syncope, palpitations when eating (that one really confused doctors), tachycardia while sitting quietly at work, cardiac stress test showed mild deconditionning (tell me about it was feeling weak). Had lot's tests done and was told it was just Vasovagal Reflex. Lately the only thing I feels sometimes is trouble swallowing or food stuck in throat for a few minutes.
My chronic back pain I have for as long as I can remember, teenager? Basically, I am very thin, was told I need more core muscles. My back starts to sore and get stiff after standing for a while and each morning. Sitting relieves.
Each time I think I am out of the woods, an other new symptoms appears. The nerve in my leg got me thinking.
Any experience, comment is appreciated. Any neurologist?
Thank you for reading.
