I'm scared. There's really no other way of putting it.
In November of 2012 I turned the entire city of Toronto upside down in my anxious furor over my MS anxieties. I had a "weak" leg, mild tingling intermittently, but most insidious of all, a subtle underlying "vertigo" when walking- when I moved my head in any direction other than straight ahead (up, down, left, right, up-and-to-the-right) I would feel off-balance and just the slightest bit stumbly. I had an MRI scan- clear. Evoked potentials- clear. Six doctors told me it was anxiety. St. Michael's MS clinic (one of the largest and most prestigious of its type in Canada) told me it was definitely not MS.
So it faded, and I lived in bliss for over a year. Flashforward to April 2014 (now), and I'm saying hello again to the off-balance feeling when I walk. I have no idea what this could be. I wasn't really feeling "anxious" when it started. It almost overcame me over night. Now I'm doubly as terrified because this almost resembles a relapse of the relapsing-remitting MS-type. Is it possible the Neurologist, the MRI scan, and the EP were just plain inaccurate?
Any insight is appreciated. My sincerest respects to my fellow hypochondriacs.
