MS or Sjorgrens Disease
...waiting for a diagnosis
I am 38 years old and my symptoms started 3 months ago suddenly. Vision problems and severe pain behind my eye sent me to the ER. In the course of seeking a diagnosis, I have developed tremors in my left hand and head, confusion, imbalance, urinary problems and severe fatigue.
My MRI showed 2 lesions on my brain and my visual evoked potentional test showed demyelination on the left side (my vision is still affected in my left eye). My blood work showed an elevated level for Sjorgren's Disease so my neurologist is retesting.
Right now she says it looks, walks and talks like MS, but is holding off on a diagnosis until the blood test comes back again. Nothing like going in prepared to hear you have one thing and finding out there might be a whole different beast lurking inside of you!
Has anyone else dealt with Sjorgren's mimicing MS or riding it's coattails?
