New symptims

Worst year ever. fully incontinent, dragging left leg got the shakes inside and out angry and crying all the time and now have to get a dog walker as I haven't got energy anymore. I put it all down to my FM but just in case I went to see my doc and he got a referral to neurologist again. He put on it urgent but letter said 8 weeks so I'm of next week privately . My head is telling me MS could I have both?

So sorry to hear this. It's best to get checked out. For what it's worth I have bad symptoms such as yours but got the all clear from MS testing. I was told I also had CFS.

Good luck

Let us know how you get on xx

I have chronic fatigue and fibro and it can really wipe you out - I think the problem becomes now when every new symptom is then - due to fibromyalgia etc.

I hope you get answers your looking for and don’t panic about what could be just wait and see

Please don't put everything down to FM. I did and it turns out my costocondritits was emphysema not fibro related. I find once someone is diagnosed with fibromyalgia we put all our symptoms down to that one problem. This is not the case for many patients and it can be a life changer if not properly diagnosed for each and every new (or old) symptom. Stay safe and keep in touch.

Much love

Could not wait to see a specialist so went private and had my brain scan as well " results 13th Dec."

Had a meltdown throwing things etc etc temper crying can not control, could have chopped my head of.

Today feeling a wee bit better because I was reading something can't even remember" where what site" I got it from but this person took sinutab and found it eased her head and neck pain so I went out and bought some wow that's why I am feeling a bit better not fully but something is better than nothing. { I'm a little calmer in myself and my head isn't heavy }
