Hi all, I hope everyone is having a good week and enjoying the beautiful weather here. It is amazing how much more upbeat everyone is for a little sunshine!
I have popped on and asked questions a couple of times but each time they seem to have disappeared and I cannot find either my own post nor if anyone has answered.
Anyway I will try for the third time and see if this appears. Today I had evoked potentials which were the somatosensory for only upper body, visual and auditory. The visual was pretty yukk and I had to rip off the electrodes to go and throw up as I felt as if I was on an extreme rollercoaster and the stimulation of my wrists was painful and took an age as he said the signal in my right arm was too weak and my neck was too tense. Anyway all done now and though I am sooo tired and sore, I am glad it is over with.
My question is to you knowledgable people, IF (it is a big if at the moment) whatever it is that is going on, IS MS then would both sides be the same or could they still be different. There is definately a difference in weakness, pins and needles and nerve pain between arms and shoulders. The positive thing too is that both are definately improved from this time last year and the year before.
The neuro of course latched on to the fact that I have a ‘stressful life’ and indicated that this is likely to be functional neurological disorder or whatever it is called but at least ordered the EPs and a brain MRI.
Sending sunshine and health and happiness vibes to you all and thanks once again for your support, regardless of what (if anything) is going wrong with my body.
