Hi lovely people.
Im at the beginning of what I read is probably going to be a long road ahead to finding out what is going on with me and my anxiety is already taking over!! I actually hope it is anxiety!
Long story cut short, an MRI for what my Doc thought was a trapped nerve is actually inflammation in my cervical spinal column and Doc has mentioned MS. Ive seen a Neurosurgeon, thought I was seeing a Neurologist and he wont tell me anything other than I have plenty of spinal fluid around the lesion area and now need to see a Neurologist. He did do some balance and reflex tests and says they were ok.
So why am I here, I think I just need a bit of reassurance re the symptoms Ive had since getting the MRI results, oh and consulting the dreaded Google I have had anxiety in the past, I know it can make you think allsorts, I am also PeriMenopausal and am trying to convince myself that all this at the moment is anxiety or hormones.
I have had weak tired knees on and off for years but now my legs are constantly tingling, it could be my feet, my knees, all my legs, one leg, both, my hand, tongue, its so random but its pretty much constant. Ive been lightheaded, had lead legs, felt unbalanced, basically all the symptoms Dr Google says. Im usually a rational type of person but I cant seem to rationalise with all this!
Please tell me this can be my mind working overtime. Can anxiety really make me feel like this? I appreciate I need further tests and its going to take time but in the mean time despite feeling surprisingly calm, my body has gone mad!
