HELP! I wander if any of you have had a similar experience.
I was diagnosed with MS a year ago following an episode of tingling/numbness in left hand/arm.I had an MRI of my brain and cord and had 7 lesions. I'm not on any treatment at the moment but feel tired, weak, have visual disturbance, buzzing down legs and regular migraine with zigzag vision and flashes for approx 20 mins prior to the headache starting. I regularly research new medical information and found an article on the MS resource Centre website stating that Hughes syndrome can mimic MS.
I suffered 2 miscarriages in 1996 and was diagnosed with APS and was told that this condition would only affect me in pregnancy. I became pregnant in 2004 and was treated with aspirin and heparin which I took throughout pregnancy and for 8 weeks after the birth of my daughter. I visited my GP today asking to be referred to St Thomas' for a rheumatology assessment based on this uncertainty of diagnosis and for further management. My GP checked correspondence from my neuro Dr. and anticardiolipin antibodies were negative when checked a year ago! My G.P. is now reluctant to refer me on this basis but I really feel that my symtoms may be due to APS which can be treated and not MS!
