Hello. I was diagnosed in 2011 by an orthopaedic surgeon of having a neurological illness CRPS – main symptom neuropathic pain & weakness. They wrote me off as a lost cause.
I recovered but have had a number of recurring episodes. In December I started with a significant episode & sought help from a neuro – rehab specialist who said this was not CRPS, and looked like MS. My dad had MS also & I’ve often thought I saw in myself the same difficulties he had. I got an urgent referral to neurology- in 6 months time!! I can’t live with the anxiety this is causing so I’m paying for a first consultation with an MS specialist on Tues …. I’m really scared….. what should I expect?? I definitely can’t afford any more private treatment so will be going back into the nhs after this.
Also… in this recent episode I’m having I’ve got symptoms you may expect – eyesight issues, muscle weakness, tingling sensations, fatigue… but also loss of taste and needing to drink all the time. I can’t get rid of the thirsty sensation (had diabetes checks which were all clear) assuming that’s something else going wonky??? Anyone else experience the loss of taste or excessive thirst??
