I had my first appointment today with the neurologist. I have various neurological symptoms which come and go. I’ve had them for probably 4 years now. I think I’ve been burying my head in the sand about it for ages and only really went to the doctors last Nov as it’s started to affect my job.
The neurologist hasn’t mentioned MS at all, she did a full neurological exam on me and said that she wanted to do an MRI scan on my brain and neck as their were a few issues that concerned her. One being that my eyes were jittery when following her pen side to side and I didn’t quite manage pass a couple of the tests.
Stupidly I didn’t ask what I hadn’t passed or even if she thought it might be MS. I just said ok and that I’d wait for an appointment.
I came home and looked up the test and have realised I failed the babinsik test?
My toes move upwards towards me when she used stroked my foot from heel to toe with a pin.
Can you fail this test and not have MS?
My other symptoms are
constant pins and needles in hands and feet
electric shocks in spine ( 5/10 times a day and night)
twitching legs awake and asleep
constant tiredness and foggy head
trouble recalling describing words and very poor memory
I also get the feeling that my skin is sunburnt?
Could it be a trapped nerve or something else?
