Hello I'm new to the group I was diagnosed last year with m.s . last year after it was missed in 2011 I have also got strictures in more than 50%of my small bowel probable cause chrons which is going to lead to intestinal failure which means I will have surgery and a intervenous feed line put in both my gastroligist and neurologist both say the treatment for the bowel will make my m.s. a lot worse I was wondering if anybody has had anything like this that could help me as having a line is not good as not many people live longer than 2 years so I'm desperate thankyou in advance x
At the risk of sounding a bit soppy, I just wanted to say Thankyou, to all those who have offered kind words of support, wisdom and encouragement during the short time I have been on here. You have got me through some questionable points, and undoubtedly, will be there to get me through more. But more importantly, as I sit and read through the newcomers threads, unable to give any constructive advice, I feel very humble and thankful on all our behalf, for your sincere kindness!
Been a while since I last popped in. Been busy with my course and family issues, and under the belief that everything was actually going okay. Well okay so my eyes kept putting distance between themselves, but hey I could deal with that, mostly because I didn't notice it.
'Course, because I haven't been thinking about it, I've been perfectly happy getting on with my life, sans my parents reminding me to get on the injections. Well to do that I'd need to get some anti-depressants, and finding a good doctor round here hasn't been easy. Hopefully I'm a small step closer, now, with one round the corner, and now Uni's out I'm not likely to miss any appointments.
This is all trivial and space-filling. I'll get to the point.
A couple months ago, I went into A&E. My chest hurt. BAD. I'd just come out of work, and started walking home, only to stop because breathing in was becoming difficult. Went in, had tests... They couldn't find the answer. Though saying that, they were looking at my heart after dismissing the lungs. I went in for another test on my heart, it's fine. I was expecting that.
But the pains haven't stopped, and in certain circumstances can be just as bad. Right in the center of my chest, sometimes worse when I move my arms out... Its horrible.
My family have taken a look at certain records, and apparently this can be a symptom of MS in rare cases... Not nice.
But is it really? Is this really a symptom I should be aware of or should I take myself back up to the hospital for tests for something else?
