Not sure if anyone remembers my first post but i posted a couple months back talking about my history and my fears of MS.
2 weeks ago I had a follow up MRI of brain and neck. Both came back normal. The MRI's were taken 8 months apart from one another. They were ordered by the 6th different neuro that I have seen (all of which have cleared me of anything sinister).
Up until the second round of MRI's I was really feeling out of it. Left side of body was tingling, and I had just a sort of malaise that I could not shake. However, after the results came clear again I felt much better, making me think it definitely has an anxiety component in it.
However, on friday, I drank a lot of alcohol. Maybe too much. I woke up on Saturday with a horrible hangover, and all my symptoms were back in a fury. My arms and hands shook like I had parkinsons, my legs felt wobbly, and the vertigo was horrible.
Fast forward to today, and most of that is gone. However, the fatigue is absolutely killing me. My right eye feels as if its numb (it feels REALLY weird) and I'm having an absolutely terrible time at concentrating studying for my final that is tomorrow (in a course called "healthy and diseased brain" nonetheless).
What are the chances that this is really something crazy like MS? Can both the MRI's and 6 different neuro's miss it? I would like to think of myself as rational, but what I'm feeling right now is not normal by any stretch of the imagination. Even my mouth is tingling, coupled with an immense head pressure thats driving me insane. I know everyone is going to read this and think nothing of it, especially since 6 neuro's have already thought that, but I just can't help but remind myself of all the MS horror stories I've seen online of people going YEARS before being diagnosed, even with clean MRI's. I feel like my story might be headed down that path, and this is something that I fear the most.
Can someone slap some sense into me? I'm tired of all the second guessing...
