Hi! I'm Ash. I'm familiar with autoimmune diseases as I have several, most notably Crohn's. But over the last 2 years, I've been developing new symptoms that are getting worse over time. I did the gambit of testing with docs last year, and we still do not have a diagnosis but the symptoms are gradually getting worse (typical autoimmune progression). All tests came back negative, except for testing that supporting more autoimmune findings.
I think I am developing MS, RRMS to be exact. I have months without these symptoms, and then weeks to months of these symptoms all at once. I am wondering if others have a similar experience.
I have numbness and tingling primarily in my arms, hands, and fingers. Mostly at night. The docs say I sleep weird ( I sleep the same I always have), or that I have carpal tunnel (my friends should have that before me based on their activities).
I see dark spots in my eyes now--my eyes are fine other than this.
I think I have cognitive issues--they assure me this is just age even though I am only 29.
This past week exhaustion hit me three different times. My whole body went physically weak, shaky, and nauseous without much effort or exercise.
I also usually have varying degrees of neck pain that are debilitating to a dull roar for days or weeks.
Hoping this community might be a helpful place to explore like experiences and get some perspective. Thanks in advance for support.
