Hi there. My name is Charlie and I just wanted some advice/reassurance I’m not loosing my mind. I apologise but this may be a long post.
I’m 27 year old mum of 2. Late last year I noticed that I kept getting pins and needles very easily in my arms and legs and it would sometimes last a long time. In January my husband and mum made me get a Drs appt. My mum then told me my great auntie had ms and was in a wheelchair from the age of 19. (Not sure if that makes any difference). The Dr said that it’s unlikely that it could be ms as I have these feelings in more than one limb. So I had put ms out of my mind. He sent me for numerous blood tests which showed I was very low in b12 and vit d. So I had b12 injections and vit d supplements which didn’t make much difference so he referred me to a neuro. I had the appt early this month and he checked all my reflexes etc and said they were all fine but to send me for an mri just in case. I’m still waiting for my appt. But this past week or so I’ve felt very ‘off’. I keep forgetting simple things and planning my days with the kids (ie dinners/times) but then realise I’ve planned it all wrong. My husband looks at me like I’m mad!! Also I’ve been getting a strange feeling in my rib area like I’m being squashed, it only lasts a few seconds but it happens quite a lot throughout the day. Is this like an ms hug?! So now I have ms back in my head! And I’ve been very tired and have had to hand my notice in at work because I worked early mornings in a bakery.
I’m very sorry for this massive post but I’m not very good at talking to people incase they think I’m weird or just making it up/exaggerating.
I was just wondering what people think, and whether I’m worrying over nothing. Thank you in advance.
