Hi, My husband has not been well for almost 3 years now. He has already been diagnosed as having peripheral neuroapathy, depression, fasiculations, tremor and severe fatigue. Alongside these he has a whole host of other stuff inculding; nausea, visual disturbances, fecal urgency, lack of balance when walking, wierd twitching, cognitive difficulties, extreme behavioural swings etc etc.... Blood tests have ruled out Limes Disease (borreolis), Copper poisioning and diabetes. He has had an MRI which came up clear (but did not have a contrast medium injected and it was on an old machine) so we're pretty much in a wait and see stage at the moment. Could anyone say if this sounds like mS to them - because it screams it to me ! Going a bit mad now, thinking it's just me....I have posted some clips of him on YouTube if anyone wants to take a look and see what they think - they're in videos, on Rachiesblog. Please help. Desperate now. Thanks !

  • i know someone with MS but she dont get mood swings, so i just looked up to see if mood swings are in MS and found the following interesting read "Mood and behaviour in MS" https://www.caremark.com/wps/portal/HEALTH_RESOURCES?topic=msmood i think he needs to be tested for MS by all those symptoms and obviously he has autonomic neuroapathy as part of his neuroapathy by his symptoms so you need to work out why. best luck
