Last year was okay for me, but the fatigue was insane! I couldn’t function well and of course I knew there is something wrong and I knew I wasn’t fully recovered.
So, I began seen another doctor, still having mild symptoms sometimes. She became fully aware of my symptoms, but, still without a proper diagnosis. When I was feeling okay, she just ordered new blood tests, results showed vitamin D was super low only 40 so, she put me in vitamin d. She also thought I had issues with my thyroid because previously during my 1st attack one CT scan showed I have a cyst in the thyroid... that’s it, end of the story. End of the investigation...
While I though I was getting better I had another attack just recently, in December 2018 and since then I can’t function well anymore. My brain is foggy, can’t think clearly, memory issues, my neck was painful again, swallowing issues, loosing strength in both hands now and grip..
The feeling is horrible and still don’t have a diagnosis.
During dr last visit I had a confrontation with my doctor because I demanded help, i was feeling miserable and I wanted to take my symptoms seriously. She said during the last visit that she “thinks” I have Ms but I needed to see the neurologist. When she said that i already knew obviously. So I’m having a blind date again with a new neurologist hoping to have a proper diagnosis this time.
Would medication help with these horrible symptoms? Don’t know what to do anymore. What type of help I can get? Support groups?
I feel absolutely frustrated, afraid. I’m feeling in a dark moment because I’m only 39, just graduated from my Midwifery Degree, starting my dream job in February, I have children, and a husband who doesn’t understand what I have. I have invested so much time studying, and my children neeed me. I thought I’ll live a healthy happy life forever but my life story is having a major turn. I’m afraid my husband will leave me, because I’m not the same person now.im afraid I won’t be able to perform my job, etc..
While I’m writing this, I’m having cloudy thoughts, weak left arm, memory loss.
Also please forgive my grammar issues sisnce English isn’t my first language.
Thank you for reading me xx
