My name is Caroline- I am 35 and awaiting an official diagnosis.
I actually went to the doctor with sore knees- referred to a consultant who was concerned by my lack of balance (which I had put down to sore knees). Rushed in for an mri of spinal chord and brain which showed evidence of Ms. I am still awaiting appointment with neurologist.
I have done so much reading about symptoms I am driving myself and my family mad. I have pins and needles in left leg and stiffness and pins and needles in left hand. Reading about bowel control- I have had 3 episodes of total loss of bowel control for a few days in the last 4 years. Could these have been relapses? One was the day after my son was born.
I have gone from being a complete emotional wreck to very cross about how long they leave you waiting for appointments.
Thanks for reading
