Good afternoon folks. Sorry If I come across as melodramatic, I am so exhausted worrying If I have MS or something even worse.
I am a worrier by nature but am normally ok at rationalising things and getting myself back in check but this niggling doubt that something is wrong with me will not go away.
For a fortnight or so, I have had various niggles and have just been to the Dr today who I have to go back to next week for a blood test. Today was the second time I have seen her.
Almost everyday probably only once day I am getting really dizzy and I would say it typically lasts about 30 mins before I feel normal again. As recently as half an hour ago, my left foot when sitting at my desk at work has been very numb like pins and needles. probably only lasted ten minutes but most days this has been happening to either foot and also both at once.
I’ve had a general weak feeling in my hands and feet and was terrified and still am this could be MND. From the research I have done though, dizziness and pins and needles tends to align more with MS though, hence me coming to you guys.
My left knee has also given way albeit subtly a few times and although Im not sure anyone else would have noticed it, I have been aware of it.
My Dr has been really good and is clearly taking it serious enough to check out and of course, ultimately they will be the guide as to what happens next post blood test results but I just wondered if this mirrored anybody’s start point and then went on to be diagnosed.
I am very worried as I have very young children and to be honest, i’ve been worrying immensly about the impact of this or any other bad diagnosis.
