I’ve been reading some of your stories and you are all incredible.
roughly 5 years ago I had what I thought was ‘sciatica’ I never went to the doctors I just assumed this was what it was, last year the pain was so bad, my lower back and neck hurt and my legs felt cold and would often feel numb although still able to walk and drive. I was also having stabbing like pains in my legs and my arms. My doctor referred me to have an MRI which was done in my lower back and showed moderate disc bulge, I also had physio which did nothing. I’ve had several bouts of feeling unwell since, 3 months ago my doctor did a full blood work up and found I am deficient in vitamin d, I have been taking my supplements but I have yet again started with the same symptoms but with added extras, I feel dizzy, like someone is shaking the room and behind my eyes hurt and sometimes can’t focus. I also ‘twitch’ it can be a muscle that you can’t see move but feel it or it can be a full on twitch where my arm physically moves.
I have mentioned my thoughts to my doctor about ms and have been told that because I get pain in both legs and arms that it cannot be ms? I’m not the expert so I took that answer.
Am I crazy for thinking this is what it could possibly be?
thank you for reading, by the way I’m a 32 year old female if that even makes a difference
