Suspect MS, here are my symptoms

Hello everyone.

For a couple of years now, I have stomach problems, which were dismissed by obgyn, nephrologist, as well as gastric and colon tests.
Finally, MRI has been done to exclude cancer, and they could not find anything and kind of let me go.

So, I have the next symptoms now. Bowel issues, pain in the right lower stomach, urges with urination, tingling area on my upper left back close to the spine, sometimes pain or uncomfort behind my right eyeball.
Depression, mood swings, and relative (I managed to get a PhD recently) decline in intelligence (which may be connected or not).

Apart from that, I feel/hear sound in my neck which is not a crack, but like a sand flow down my spine and head swings when I lay down
All those things ocuur and disappear from time to time and seamed quite benign before I saw a video of a MS patient.

After all those doctors dismissed my stomach pain, I kind of gave up and ignored all my symptoms. Tingling, sound in the neck and eyeball thing are present for some years.

  1. This might be of some help to understand why they may have "let you go" with regards to an MS diagnosis in relation to a clean MRI. McDonald criteria is the diagnostic criteria used in many/maybe most(?) countries for the diagnosis of MS:

    There are also a large number MS mimics.

    I hope you keep advocating with healthcare providers to find out what's going on, best of luck and take good care! 🍀🤞

    1. I have a hard time trying to reply to this it is all soo true it hurts.

      I have had all of these problems, the very first symptom was not being able to swallow, anything even water!!!. Then I got double vision because right and left eyes do not work together.
