Just popped on seeking opinions really. I’ve had constant numbness and tingling in the right side of my head and face for nearly 7 weeks now, in addition to poor balance, fatigue and feeling very emotional.
The facial symptoms have improved slightly in as much as they are only affecting my mouth, cheek and corner of my eye. However, I now experience extreme tightness in my face to the point that my mouth looks a little distorted and my mouth burns when I eat. Believe it or not the symptoms are worse when I laugh or smile, which is infuriating because I don’t want to look miserable all the time :lol:
I have no dx yet but had an MRI 15th August which apparently showed lesions on the right side of my brain indicating a strong possibility of MS.
I have not worked since 6th August due to feeling so awful, I now have an appointment with OH 13th October and an appointment with the Neuro 28th November.
Sorry for the long post but I am due to see my GP tomo as my sick note runs out and am in two minds as to whether to return to work yet. I know nobody can really answer that question for me but would value opinions My boss is going on leave for 2 wks and is unsure whether I should return before OH appointment. I’m bored out of my mind but don’t know if I’m ready yet and at the same time don’t have much faith in my GP to make the decision for me.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this xxx
