, I’m hopeful for some advice! At the beginning of May I woke up and I had numbness/altered sensations from my waist down, I had a full sensation up my bottom which was particularly unpleasant! The sensations changed over the weeks from freezing cold/hot/buzzing/tingling and tightness in my feet particularly. Few months on my legs and feet have mostly recovered albeit my right foot still has a tight band sensation but its my stomach that is really uncomfortable i have a constant tight band across my stomach, above me bellybutton. I can’t bare wearing things like jeans anymore as it seems to aggravate it.
My GP referred me for spine MRI. The spinal clinic said my spine was fine and referred my to a neurologist who I saw for the first time last week. He said there was a small patch of inflammation on my spine and has referred me for a brain MRI and he mentioned a lumber puncture possibly. He mentioned it may be ms. At the time of the symptoms I was suffering with a bad cold. I had similar sensations in my feet in 2017 but it went away a few months later. I have just turned 37 and I have two young children with a full time job so I do feel worn out sometimes and struggle on and off with constipation but apart from that I feel fine! What do you think? does it sound like I might have ms? I’m worried sick about it is it normal that the neurologist didn’t offer any other explanation? I passed all the balance/eye test etc. thanks for reading x
