I have not been diagnosed with MS. I have had different off and on symptoms starting when I was 20. I have seen more doctors than I can count.
I was diagnosed with Firbromyalgia in 2005, but have not had any relief from symptoms and have had more symptoms occur that don't seem to be related.
I was also diagnosed with Neuro Cardiogenic Syncope, the medications I was on didn't help, and now I don't take anything but an anti-depressant.
I was doing a fairly good job of dealing with (ignoring) most of my dizziness, vertigo, shortness of breath, chest pains, achyness, tinnitus, and fatigue until about 6 months ago when I developed constant whooshing or vascular tinnitus in my left ear.
Starting last week it is now also in my right ear, and starting a couple of days ago there is also a humming in my right ear and flashes of light directly in front of my eyes. My vision also feels 'different', like it's pixalated or something.
I'm tired, I'm caring for 3 children and I'm stressed. I'm fighting depression because I just don't know what's going to happen next.
My aunt has MS, my father suffers from many similar symptoms as myself, and also a completely numb/painful/and hot left side of his body. (no diagnosis).
I just did an MRI with contrast, and it was normal. Waiting, waiting, waiting for my next VA appointment.
Thanks for letting me vent. :)
