I’m very confused… A little history, I’ll try to be brief: I’m 41 I started having Severe pain in both feet, & L ankle that became so severe I could barely walk, ( especially in Am, & Eve… I saw a podiatrist… diagnosed w plantar Faciatis ( Cortizone shots, , & Physical therapy, orthotics) I also had shooting pain in my legs at night & periodically tingling numbness in legs, stiffness & heavy ness feelings in legs after prolonged sitting, Tingling in hands & arms ( all though mostly in feet & hands). & a few times in my pelvic area. anyway I did the therapy for a few months lost 35 pounds ( I’m moderatly over weight 190 currently 5’6 female) My pain went away, I felt great! For several months!! No pain… no problems walking, light to no pain in legs at night!.. However… then lout of no where a few days ago, my foot started hurting mildly, I started my Physical therapy home exercises & didn’t think much of it, then I was walking in store ( walking alot) & out of no where my foot turned inward, & my legs felt weak, & just collapsed, I fell almost flat on my face… ( I did not black out) I was more embarrased & got up before anyone could see me lying down in the parking lot.
That fall was my 2nd time in like 3, or 4 months, last time same thing… I also researched some balance test, I can’t stand n one foot barely on the right, & not at all on the left, & I tried to do the balance test where you close your eyes & stand still w your arms by your side, & I sway terribly. so no propreoception for me…r I’m getting terrible leg pain that runs all the way from my hips to my ankles Bi- lateral on the lateral ( outside of my legs), I work all day on my feet, seems to be worse at night… like throbbing or deep ache. Ii’m not sure if this is related to my feet, but the pain & sensations seem to be differn’t. I had a Nerve conduction study that came out ok, but w slight delay on left, but one Dr. said it was not significant… but that’s about it. would my Nerve conduction study be positive w MS. My friends in the medical field say it sounds like Ms should be ruled out, or investigated…??
I saw my primary, but she thought I had low blood sugar… but I know how that feels & it wasw nothing like that… it’s Dec & I can’t get into a neuro untill the end of the month, Dec 23, wich means if they send me for test it will be next year & I will have big $$$ Deductables… also I really don’t think I should wait… so any advice here? I’m 41 & find this all very strange , any advice would be greatly appreciated!
