If you've already had your thyroid checked you should have an MRI of your brain. Being a young woman makes you in a demographic for which multiple sclerosis is a rare possibility but one that should be entertained
Have you ever had problems with your vision?
well, i have bad vision generally but i have experienced some dizziness which blurs my vision when it happens
Yes you need to have an MRI definitely
You're a young women and have some blurry vision episodes. That is one of the stereotypical suggestions of multiple sclerosis. Also the fact that you have "episodes" because it is a relapsing remitting problem.
how do i convince my doctors to do that? i have been going there for three years, with these symptoms and they just think i am depressed
I think all you need to say to them is:
I have changes of my vision (blurriness), dizziness, word finding difficulties. I have these symptoms in multiple episodes which then improve and come back. Tell them that you've discussed this with me and I feel that evaluating you for multiple sclerosis with an MRI of the brain is reasonable. They'll probably agree. Sometimes a physician just needs to be reminded about possible diagnoses.
ok, thank you.
Did I answer your question?
just want to know if thats the only thing you think its likely to be?
The most worrisome thing that would be easy to evaluate for
A complicated migraine is another possibility
For which seeing a neurologist would be needed
To try one of the many medications that can be prescribed.
ok, thank you for your help
