I was wondering if anyone out there could give me any advice/insight into what I could be up against here. I am feeling terrified and any support would be greatly appreciated. About 3 years or so ago, I noticed a numb spot on the left side of the roof of my mouth and on my top lift on the same side. I asked the doctor at the time and he did some strength and reaction tests, and seemed unconcerned and said it was probably herpes virus damage.
Then about 7 months ago I started to notice that my fingers were making slight movements by themselves. Some Internet research later, and putting that and my numb lip/top pallet (which never went away) together, I convinced myself that this was MS. I then spiralled into a month of anxiety. Were I was experienced every symptom under the sun. I am fairly sure many of these were anxiety induced though. However, 7 months later and still awaiting a neurology appointment on the NHS, many of these symptoms haven’t gone. I still have pins and needles sensations in my legs very frequently. It doesn’t move around at all. My legs on both sides get pins and needles all over them and the skin feels sore/ burnt to the touch. I get painless muscle twitches every couple of days of so. I still get movement in my fingers and very occasionally in my legs every now and then coupled with a small electric shock feeling.
Then the other day I noticed my top gums have gone numb too. I went to the doctor (I am currently abroad) and he set me up with an MRI for Mondayi se cede some urgency in his actions. I am now extremely worried about what the outcome will be. Can anyone give me any ideas on this. Does this sound like MS? Does anyone have other ideas of what this could be? I have no weakness in my muscles no coordination or balance problems. I am so anxious though!
Thanks in advance!
