Hi @andrew_jackson and welcome.

Unfortunately, we’re not medically trained so we can’t really help with your diagnosis. What we do know is that MS symptoms are also present in various other conditions, which is why it is complicated to get a diagnosis of any neurological condition.

Have you seen a neurologist about this?

no i get very little help my gp just say it may be some kind of nerve damage but do nothing about it

@andrew_jackson , you need to ask for a Neurology referral to investigate the “nerve damage”. You may need to be assertive in your request, but always be polite.

If that fails, you’ll need to seek a second opinion from another Doctor, either in your Practice, or elsewhere.

Hey @andrew_jackson
First off I feel Ur struggle I went back and forth to my GP complaining of very similar symptoms to yours. I finally got referred to a neuro who diagnosed me with ms & trigeminal neuralgia. The TN is caused by my ms in my case, please don’t back down you have to demand better investigation of your symptoms as I suffered terribly with facial pain for 4 years until I was diagnosed. I’ve sent u a friend request any questions just ask!
