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!
I know I left the board last month, but things have got worse and im finding it hard to function.ive now been having bad head pains for the last 5 weeks,I've no energy,also have a weakness in my face,meaning I can't smile onon side of face.I've been to 4 different GPs,also seen a neurologist who said nothing is wrong,my head hurts to touch,pain comes and goes,but it has been there everyday for the last 5 weeks.its another waiting game.ive been comfort eating,just sleeping and no exercise.has anyone experienced this type of head pain or facial weakness with me.ive been told there is prob nothing medically wrong.
This is my second home just now. The thing is, I'm seeing a GP at my surgery next week and I really, really want her to listen to my concerns. It might sound a daft question, but what is the best approach?
I'm naturally quite a reserved person, and I don't think I fight my corner too well. I now know I REALLY have to; I'm not getting any better - so many awful, random symptoms that I need to get to the bottom of - I can't stand the thought of being sent away with pills to mask my symptoms again!!!!
Should I take my husband? I've taken lists of symptoms in the past, and the GP has looked at me like I'm being overly paranoid and suggested I go on anxiety medication. I feel I never really get listened to. Where am I going wrong???
Please help. Jan.
