Hi - new to this Forum. I’ve been getting strange symptoms the past couple of months including:
leg weakness (both legs)
muscle tone on legs and arms doesn’t seem what it was 2 months back
difficulties with balance - not noticeable to other people but doesn’t feel “right”. Was diagnosed earlier in the year with an inner ear disorder (in June) but unsure that this was a correct diagnosis. Balance returned to normal for a while then went “off” again at end of August
some muscle twitching in both calves and left arm, and I think on my back
occasional numbness/pins and needles and burning sensations
low white blood cell count (lymphocytes)
I’ve now had two MRIs: firstly the brain a month back and last week the neck down to the base of the spine. Neither revealed anything abnormal (except expected wear and tear on the spine for a 44 year old man). Neuro exam was apparently pretty normal, though another doctor (not a Neuro) I saw noted brisk reflexes on the knees.
does this sound anything like the path anyone else had? I’ve been convinced I have MS in some form, I know that the MRI results would pint away from this, though I believe there are a small number of cases where MRIs don’t reveal any lesions with MS.
