Hi there, firstly, apologies for this as I know seeking info online isn’t the ideal, going to GP is. I am reluctant to do that in the first instance as I simply fear wasting their time (their time is precious because the demand is so high!) and I am well aware I could be making 5 in my maths sum title!
I am simply looking for any advice people may have based on your experience and if this is anything I should be concerned about. I dont plan to go to the Drs quite yet unless its clear I should. A few things are causing me slight concern. Firslty, (and I thought completely unrelated!) I began suddenly having migraines (aura) about 3 years ago. I have no history of them and they are not massivly frequent (every few months or so) and I can generally (but not always) control the symptoms with paracetamol and get on with the day. I have not worried about them too much, though I know it probably is something I should have got checked out.
On Sunday evening coming back from church, I got out the car heading into the house and suddenly my legs felt quite weak. I didnt feel I was going to collapse or in any danger of that but they were shaking and I felt they had lost a lot of strength. I felt heavier and it was just rather odd…almost like I had been lifting lots of heavy things and had that weakness and shake after a lot of exertion, except there had been no exertion on the day other than standing for fairly long periods (I do that every week without this). This carried into Monday with the feeling of weakness still there, managing to walk fine in the regular short distances I do but the stairs were a fair challenge. Again no danger I couldn’t manage them but well aware they were causing me more of a challenge. There was also a fair dully pain in my legs and the odd more stabbing/cramping pain. Today this seems to have largly lifted and I feel more like myself again. Of course on Sunday I made the mistake of googling weakness in both legs and you can guess what the first potential concern was - hence my 2+2=?
I am aware symptoms are diverse! Thanks for any advice/experience.
