I ask this because I am under a Nuerologist aswell as a Rheumaltologist , and I am not sure which of my symptoms point to MS and which to Lupus. But the more I read about Lupus the more I think Lupus could explain everything.
I have nerve pain which I take Pregablin for and now also take Another nerve pain killer which the Nuero prescribed, my brain is shot and I can no longer remember common words and if someone interrupts me mid sentence that is it I lose my train of thought. I also have bladder problems which I am now on medication for. I thought these problems were more Nuerological and even the Nuero agreed and has done a lower spine MRI to look for lesions to explain the nerve pain in my foot and bladder problems.
I just wish someone would but their hand up and say its X. The Nuero says you do not need a Dx as we can treat your symptoms, but then says I am on too much medication! The Rheumie after a year and 2 visits says its Raynards and mixed conective tissue, and on the 3rd 6 monthly visit look horrified to hear how ill I'd been and wants to put me on Hydroxychloroquine , but still waiting on the go ahead from the eye clinic. Not expecting eye clinic to say no as they said it was Nuerological, my circulation and now my age!
Sorry to keep asking questions but I am so confused.
