Hi everybody, I have been creepin on this website for months now, several times a day. My background is I have had HA for a very long time, since I was young. I was raised by a worry wart father and my mom was diagnosed with MS when I was pretty young. The MS never ever bothered me or came in to mind until about a year ago. I must say though, I have thought I have had everything at some point! This past year has been the worst! I thought to have had a bladder problem, HIV, Cancer, Fibromyalgia and the big one MS. I have been to the doctor for each of those problems probably 6 times. All negative.
The problem that doesn't seem to go away is the MS thoughts. My mom has it really bad and I was told by the doctor because I am her daughter I have a 5% chance of getting it vs. the normal female population of 3%. I had tingling all over my body, like water drops, all over for about a month, especially in my hands and feet and also sometimes a buzzing feeling. I went to 3 docs, all telling me go see a psychologist its not MS, which I did. Finally, my GP referred me to a neurologist to make me feel better. He didn't. He was rude and not reassuring. He did however order an MRI "to make both of us feel better" and there I went. I got an MRI w/ contrast right before Thanksgiving and it was negative. Yay right? Wrong, now my tingling has pretty much disappeared but my left leg feels sore, a little tired at times and now my lower back hurts. What if we missed something!!! I have absolutely no numbness, but I don't like that its one sided. I do remember him telling me if it was one sided, it would be more plausible! Am I being crazy? My MRI was just taken. Is it in my head? I feel like my life is ruined by HA! I am so sick of the "body noise". Most of all I am embarrassed to go to the doc again.
