Im Emma, 25 and a mummy to two beautiful girls.
I’ve actually been coming on this site for a couple of years but never posted.
I have been experiencing symptoms for 5 years now, some being - fatigue, pins and needles, body vibrating (like I’ve been on a vibration plate) stabbing pain in jaw, muscle pain, blurred right eye, burning patches on my right foot, hand and head. The latest being the worse where I was admitted to hospital for 4 days as I suffered with right sided weakness/heaviness. (I find it so hard to describe to people the feeling). Anyway after blood tests, brain MRI and ruling out stroke the neurologist said he didn’t think it was ms and he diagnosed me with severe migraines which cause temporary paralysis. I’ve been described amitryptiline but I don’t feel these are working.
Ms has been mentioned a few times but previous scan and lumbar puncture was clear. Of course I’m not looking for it to be Ms, however I do feel ‘fobbed off’ with the severe migraines.
I came out of hospital 3 weeks ago and although my movement is better it is no way near 100%. i have a spinal MRI booked for 29th August.
Thank you for reading.
