As per my title I am absolutely petrified right now and convinced I have all the symptoms of MS.
About 10 days ago I noticed that I was getting numbness in my left foot which carried on for a few days and continued on and off up my leg. On Friday I woke up in the middle of the night and was completely numb down my left side which freaked me out and I took myself to A&E where I had a CT scan and some blood tests before being admitted to the stroke ward as the only thing they could think of was that I had a possible minor stroke. They advised I needed an MRI scan however as it was now the weekend and I wouldn’t be able to have one they felt they could discharge me and have one as an urgent outpatient which I am having this weekend.
My symptoms currently are a strange feeling in my left leg including on and off pins and needles and numbness. When I first noticed this I also had pins and needles in my face and felt like I was dribbling as well as having issues on a couple of occasions getting my words out. Over the last couple of days my feet particularly my left one has been freezing cold also. My left buttock is also numb and sorry to much information but I feel like the left side of my vagina is too. I do not think I have had a stroke as I did not loose strength at all.
ive obviously been checking my symptoms online and convinced I have MS which is scaring me!! I don’t know what to do. I expect I need to wait for my head MRI on Sunday and the results as this should pick up possible ms?
sorry I just need to talk to someone,
thank you, Jo
