Might Have Might Not Waiting To See
maybe maybe not.
let me start my story (as i type with one eye shut so sorry for any spelling mistakes)
in early july 2009 i got a feeling of numbness in my left arm and at the same time my top lip had a tingly feeling often making me slur my words. being a bloke who works 6 days a week and has good work ethics i didnt see my doctor.
i was on holiday at the end of july and my son took ill with suspected swine flu as i went into the doctors on holiday to get a prescription i just mentioned my own problems to the receptionist who immediately gave me an appointment for the doctor.
the doctor did all the initial tests but didnt find anything so she sent my notes to my doctors.about 2 weeks later the symptons stopped but i gained double vision that lasted about 10 days but it wasnt that bad, but my mother booked me an appointment with my own doctor as i never got round to it. he didnt know what it could be or if he did he didnt tell me,but arranged for me to see a nerologist at the hospital.
my double vision had cleared up so waiting for my appointment which is nov 5th 2009 i got another spout of double vision, pretty bad this time enough for me to decide not to drive. so made an appointment to see the eye specialist at my doctors and she told me i might have MS, i wasnt shocked or frightened as i didnt know what it is, still dont so i dont know if i have ms or not, read abit but not alot as the doctor told me not to as i would frighten myself.
in a way im pleased that i can put a name to it as it was hard to decribe my doulble vision as it goes when i shut one eye doesnt matter which one.
what i want to know is ----- anything you feel i might or should know if this is like you or what i should ask at the nerologist anything you feel might help.
my wife was mad that the doctor told me i might have ms but reading other exp im glad
