12 months ago I hurt my back which recovered within 5 days by taking pain killers.
Approx 5 weeks after this I started getting a pins and needles sensation in my left leg.
My GP did blood and I had a low B12 so he gave me 3 weekly shots of B12 (this was never followed up again)
I was then sent to a physio who sent me for lower back scans, which all came back normal.
I then went for nerve conducting studies which again came back normal.
Therefore was sent to see a neurologist who referred me for upper spine scan and brain the scan.
The upper spine was fine but the brain scan showed legions on the white matter which he said strongly indicated MS.
He ordered more bloods and a lumbar puncture (I am still waiting for this)
Some bloods are back which show my B12 is now fine but I have a low ferritin level which is 7
I asked could it be anything other than MS and he said he was 90% sure it was MS.
He asked me about other conditions such as bladder control and I stated “if I need to go I need to go” but I have always put this and other general isssues such as slight memory issues down to the menopause (I am 50 year old).
I have had a problem with one eye for the last 5 years which was diagnosed as episcleritis and not related.
So I am now just in limbo as the neurologist doesnt want to see me again until January, surely he cant put into my head I have MS and then make me wait 3 months.
I’m not sure where to turn to.
Thanks for listening
