Hi, hope I've posted in the right section. Apologies if not, rubbish phone.
I've had years of weird symptoms, normal blood tests etc. I know I have anxiety and am having a hideous menopause so it's hard to know what is going on.
Many of my symptoms,are classic Ms,lots of nerve tingling, weird sensations etc but I've never dared bring up the name with Gp for fear of being called a hypochondriac. You know the score. I've given up with them to be honest, but I've been really suffering for years with these bizarre things that nobody believes in. Saw a neurologist who did blood tests and a 2 minute physical exam, then wrote a sarcastic report on the lady who helpfully wrote 2 pages of symptoms! I.can see that.I come across as a time waster, but if he was feeling what I feel, he'd be crying for his mummy. (sorry for sarcasm but I'm putting up with a lot and they aren't getting it!)
This may just be anxiety. I know it can create a lot of symptoms but thing is, that I had a brain scan a couple of years ago and they found small bilateral ischaemic lesions in the frontal lobes. The wording said it could be normal ageing, or demyelination
Verdict: needs clinical correlation
No action was taken and I've been told to ignore the report because "lots of people have white spots in their brain"
I'm sat here with what feels like a tight belt round my waist and tender spots on.the ribs as well as allthe other weirdness. Certainly similar to the Ms hug, been going on for days.
Do I even bother mentioning this again to anyone?
