I’ve recently been told I could have MS awaiting MRI as we speak. I was diagnosed with optic neuritis last year which messed with my colour vision then I have this really odd sensation in my toes and fingers I can’t describe it as numbness but it’s a very odd sensation like when you get to cold and can’t feel your fingers and if I put my head forward I get tingles down my back. And water seems to set off these what I call tingles big time.
The thing I’m confused about though is my brother was diagnosed with MS about 9 years ago and it was when the health consultants found that out they started mooting MS but I was led to believe MS is not hereditary? So I keep thinking maybe it’s not MS at all and am I going mad? My GP seemed unconvinced until I mentioned about my brother I’m a 45-year old female and would appreciate any input as I feel like I might be wasting an MRI slot and I’m really confused!
Apologies in advance for my rambling
