Hi Everyone. For the past three weeks i have been falling into things, having tremors, numbness and pins and needles in my arms and feet, headaches that wouldnt go away although medication was taken, visual disturbances, having the feeling of being drunk, trouble walking like i was drunk, severe abdominal cramps, memory loss(cant remember times and dates, peoples names and whats been on the television, cant do simple crossword puzzles, words getting mixed up), aches and pains like a feeling of flu like symptoms but no cold, anxiety, tiredness and fatigue, and slight bouts of earrache that last seconds but are sharp and very painful. My GP took bloods but not for hughes syndrome as he had never heard of it until today when i went for my results. Over the years my father passed away of pulmonary hypertension of the lungs, and in my case i was told when i had my polycystic ovaries(cysts burst under anaethestic) was told by my gynaecologist that i was able to conceive but not carry a child, had reaccurrent migraines in my 20's and then they returned with avengance 3 weeks ago to the point where i had to have an eye test because of a stabbing pain in my eye, and also taken off the contraception pill because it was causing DVT. My GP has referred me to see a neurologist and has said today that there is something inflammed in my body but he doesnt know where although i do suffer with spinal osteoarthritis. Is any of you who have this syndrome diabetic, because whatever it is thats causing these symptoms has pushed my blood sugars through the roof. As my GP has no indication of this syndrome he is looking through everything, but has said that MS is very difficult to diagnose as there are so many symptoms and illnesses that are linked but its not necessarily MS, and because of this he is dumb founded and is still pursuing other things and the more blood i get taken from me the more tired and lethargic i feel. How long do you have to wait before your diagnosed with the correct illness as at the moment im feeling like a pin cushion? Oh and before i forget my cousin has lupus which attacked her kidneys so badly that she had to have a transplant. Do i need to keep going through all of these symptoms and tests until they find out what the problem is? Why is MS linked to hughes syndrome? Any advice given to me would be so much appreciated so thankyou all.
