Hi everyone out there, I am new to this site and as yet undiagnosed with MS. I have an Optic neuritis of the right eye which was first discovered in 2002 and has left me with what seems like a thin veil over my eye and colours are diminished. I have had two MRI scans since and the last one did find demyelination of the optic nerve, but at that time I had not experienced any symptoms of MS and was told to push it to the back of my mind. Easier said than done. Of late I am experiencing episodes of pain in both legs (quite indescribable) but seems to run centrally down both legs and keeps me awake at night. (3 episodes of this now) At the moment I have problems with my right foot and ankle area, which feels numb, hot and pins and needles. I am forcing my foot from heel to toe when I walk but could easily walk flat footed. Blood tests to check 'nerve blood' all came back fine and have been referred to Neuro. My legs are strong though! All reflexes are fine and although it hurts(sometimes more than others) I am making myself keep going, walking the dog etc. I really hope I am worrying about nothing, my GP thinks the problems in my legs could be coming from my back, but he wanted to refer me to be sure. My memory is shocking! If I don't write it on the calendar it doesn't happen. Forgetting names all the time and constantly walking into doors and door frames so a bit bruised on the arms too. Sound familiar to anyone? I am so worried I would love some reassurance.
Best wishes to you all
