Hi all just looking for a bit of advice. I am 32 years old and have been having very weird things happening to me over last 2 years. I am getting nowhere with my neurologist at all. He basically thinks this is all in my head. My story starts with loss of strenght in my left arm and left leg, pins and needles,very poor balance, tingling sensations all over my body at different stages over last 2 years, tiredness, slurred speech at times and mixing my words up also. I am always dropping stuff and tripping over. I also have a burning sensation in my feet and sharp pain in my feet at times. Had MRI done originally which showed 11 plagues on my brain as was told had possible MS but spinal tap came back clear as did all other tests. I have to mention to that i have had 2 bad attacks which were both treated with IV steroids and there was a definite improvement. However the improvement doesnt seem to last for more than a few months and it is only improvement all symptoms do not go away. Now am being told it is ME or psychosomatic illness even though I went to see the pychiatrist on 2 occasions as requested by neurologist and he gave me the all clear and said in his view is not psychiatric. I feel like a hypochondriac at this stage and just want to get better. What do I do from here. I am so confused. Any advice accepted please help me.
