Hi, since the start of last year. It has been the worst of my life. At the start of January. I was 25. Did not smoke, drink or do drugs. I also worked out 5 times a week (Cardio and weights). I had a great girlfriend and was really optimistic for the future. With career prospects looking good too.
But, something happened at the start of February. My leg muscles started twitching and pulling. I also started to experience burning sensations around my skin. My big toes also showed a slight tremor. This all happened pretty much overnight. I wasn't that scared at the time. I put it down to exercise fatigue. This was accompanied by constant mouth ulcurs (still get atleast 4 a month) and muscle weakness.
After two months with no sign of things stopping and brainfog symptoms creeping through. Plus, twitching spreading to my arm. I decided to go to my GP. I was given loads of blood tests. All came back normal. B12, folate, Iron, Ferritin, U&E. Thyroid function, vitamin D, full blood count and Copper. I was eventually diagnosed with BFS and basically sent packing without a follow up (no MRI or nerve tests).
Since the doctors appointments and bloodtests. I now have a constant ringing In my right ear and my eye has been bloodshot for three weeks. It also feels very strained. Mouth ulcurs never stop appearing either.
I live in the UK and every doctor just brushes me off as they have no idea what is going on. Feel like there is no hope to be honest.
