Hello everyone! This is my first post so I will apologize in advance for the wide range of emotions this may bring. Well I have to start out by saying that my diagnosis of MS was a complete surprise to me as the purpose of my MRI was to rule out a Pituitary Tumor. Well good news is that there was no pituitary tumor….who says I don’t have any luck….lol. I went through a series of emotions……the first of which was relief. Relief I did not have a tumor and secondly relief that I had at least a name to my various complaints over the last year primarily. I am a nurse so every symptom I showed, I explained away. I would tell my doctor but in the same breath come up with a reason for it. I have had tremors in my hands for a couple of years. I have a noticeable changes I. The past year with increase in migraines, almost daily headaches, light headedness with position changes, hyperflexia with my knees, clonus in my left foot, dropping things, Difficulty with fine motor skills in my hands, stiff knees and hips when getting up from chair and bed, tightness in calves when I get up that dissipates with walking, difficulty with memory, fatigue, neck stiffness and discomfort…..I could keep going on. When I stepped back and looked at everything, I thought at least I know I am not crazy or hypochondriac. A lot of my feelings were also thought to be related to my depression…..well not so much. I was referred to a neurologist and have tried for 3 Weeks to get an appointment. I leave messages and phone numbers with no return call. Even explained about my concern and anxiety…..no call. Tomorrow calling primary doctor and asking for a referral to someone else. This could be an indicator of attentivess and if so Iam not sure this would provide me the best care. With allllllll that being said. I will be in touch with how things go. Thank you all for listening. Trying to keep positive!!!!
