hi, i am a 59 year old woman, happily married with an ever expanding family (8 grandchildren). for the last 3 years i have been experiencing worsening symptoms, numbness, balance and bladder problems, brain fog, fatigue and pain. these are the main problems and seem to get worse by the day. i have given up work and my hubby is my carer, bless him. had all the tests relating to ms by my neurologist and he has come up with the dx of "medically unexplaind functional nerological symptoms". i have lots of meds a wonderful gp and am seeing a psycologist.
i found this site and i am hoping that this is the right place for support and to learn.
i have just come through a "relapse" which has left most of my face numb and the ability to walk a short distance even worse. i use a walker when i go out on which i can sit if i need to. i need someone with me when i go out, and i hate to keep asking for help so i am pretty bored and it does get me down.
people keep asking me whats wrong and not having a "proper dx" i feel like a fraud.
looking forward to any replies x x x
