DX'd with ET
I was dx'd with ET while I was seeing a neuro because I was rear ended 2 yrs ago & have since developed all kinds of neuropathy issues. He noticed my head shaking. I'm taking Gabapentin & wear a 10mg Butrans patch for my neuropathy symptoms. I've noticed that sometimes I get wild jerks (mostly in my legs but they occur in my arms as well) & I thought they were side effects from the Butrans, but reading an earlier post regarding muscle jerks makes me think that it's the ET.
I've also experienced what I believe to be optic neuritis. I'm convinced I have MS, but my CT & MRI's were negative.
I have read that if the MRI isn't given with contrast & thin sliced, it might not show any evidence of MS.
Do any of you suffer from other MS type symptoms??
Thanks for listening.
