Month and half ago I develop dizziness and feeling of drunkenness with nausea.
Week or two after this I started having problems with focusing my eyes.
Week ago new symptoms; numbness and clumsiness in my legs and arms and I feel very depressed.
I check up my eyes and the problems are not in the eyes and my general blood picture is also ok. I am also giving breastfeeding to my 5month baby, but doctor think that this is not the cause of the problem. I am afraid Multiple Sclerosis or some other autoimmune disease.
If anybody knows something of if some one can give me some answers I will really appreciated this.
I don’t wish to scare you, but I think with your symptoms a proper work up by a neurologist is in order. I am by no means saying that you have MS, but your symptoms do raise a red flag especially when you said you have a five month old.
Some research has shown that multiple sclerosis relapses or attacks (or onset) are around two to three times more common than usual in the first six months after childbirth.
For me my first symptoms began when my first-born was four months old.
AGAIN- take a deep breath and try to relax. I am not saying you have MS…I just think that you need to have a neurological evaluation. In addition, a general round of blood work should be evaluated to make sure that you are not experiencing any sort of vitamin/mineral or hormonal imbalance or anemia. This blood work can also be used to check for markers for other autoimmune diseases and infections.
Please let me know what evaluation shows. Also I can be found on here if you have any other questions or need someone you talk to.
