Sounds like something… MS… well I am far from qualified to say.
I would suggest discussing your various issues with your GP and asking for an MRI referral. That would give you a definitive idea if it is MS.

I think you need to have your heart checked.

Keep going to your GP darling. They know you best.

Its abit of a trial and error the more you go the more things they can rule out.

Your GP can prescribe nerve pain killers like Gabapentin and Amitryptyline.

Also do a peak flow if you are getting breathless and ecg is fine.

I am also under investigation at the moment. And i got breathlessness and they checked my ecg it was fine.

Also you could be deficient in b12. take a b12 supplement or test.

@kim_alexander-goodwin , as suggested above, it could be anything and you need the correct medical advice. We are not really in a position to suggest a diagnosis MS or not.

All we can say is that some of the symptoms do sound like MS, but these symptoms also present in various other conditions too.

What tests have you had so far?

The ER never did an MRI? Do you have neurologist? If not I’d have your primary refer you to one. It took a few neuro appts and ER appts before someone took me seriously as well. The neuro told me it was just anxiety and somehow the brain MRI he did without contrast only supposedly showed up normal yet two days later in the ER it was filled with lesions.
