I’m in so much pain with progressive muscle spasms in lumber spine, unable to walk without sticks, sit, stand…ended up in A & E last week, and doc stated its scoliosis in lumber spine…???
I gave up looking for answers from med profession, because I felt a fool, but the sypmtoms are worse than ever and more frequent, and yet i’m still cautious to see med profession again…
I have been fighting for some recognition from med profession. symptoms are as follows:
numb big toes, and other two toes on both feet, numbness goes to half way up feet.
DX with mortons neuroma in one of the feet, nothing done about it…or any recognition of MS
Previously told by neurologists that I don’t have MS, and to go away and live my lfe
On average every 2nd or 3rd week my back goes into spasm, the pain is excrutiating; morphine administered, Naproxen, Diazepam, and still no relief!!!
I have a previous neurological condition (AVM) which left me with epilepsy, so I am also on Lamictal
Legs unable to lift them and put one foot in front of the other without feeling like my back is going to snap.
Itchy rash skin (starts like hives - so not sure if relevant?)
Tightness in chest
If I sit, lie, stand for a very short period of time (eg, 5mins) my back, legs, etc lock.
Bladder weakness since 19 (now 43!)
Bowels over the past 12 months have become progressively worse…living on immodium; unable to get a happy medium, i’m either constipated, or have go to toilet excessively…GP said it’s IBS (without any tests done!)
Get tightness in and around stomache area when the spasms are bad…I always get tested for bladder, or kidney infection - but it always comes back clear…so confused as to why my stomache hurts so much when my bck is bad?
Limbs feel heavy - I feel OLD!!!
Unable at this moment to think of other symptoms…
Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated
