My partner is pretty much self diagnosed – after years and years of disregard from doctors who couldnt find any evidence of strokes (events where she couldnt talk or move, or events where she blacked out entirely – usually proceeded by a strong headache). Lately a new symptom appeared when she became stressed – incontinence. Also, she has had UTIs often, suffered nerve pain in her neck and back and on and on.
What we are worried about is rate of deterioration and what should we expect to happen next. If the stress at work (and at home) continues, will the rate increase? what should we be looking out for in new symptoms?
thanks in advance, the worried partner
