Hi everyone ill try and make this as short as i can.
around may time i had pins and needles down the left side of my body , mostly my legs but also had it in my arms and hands. after i had this a couple of weeks i went to the doctor who asked me a range of questions about vision, tiredness etc. the only other thing i had was tiredness (nothing too extreme). he mentioned MS briefly and said he would take bloods. he rung me when my blood results were back and they were all clear so he said he would send a referral to a neurologist.
now i couldn’t tell you when this went or even if it did go or i got used to it but i didnt think about feeling unwell for a couple of weeks and certainly didn’t think about the pins and needles
fast forward to roughly the beginning of august and my eyesight started going blurry. anything to do with my eyes and i panic so i booked an appointment with the optician straight away. at this point i had totally forgotten about the doctor asking me about my eyesight during my appointment so didnt connect the two. i had a slight prescription nothing major, infact i cant tell much difference when im wearing them to not. my eyes were still going blurry but i thought i was maybe overtired, hayfever etc and because i had them checked i didnt know what else to do about them
about a week ago the pins and needles came back but a lot worse. also in my face and feet this time. its a weird sensation like prickling and like my body is on fire. anyway its really bad and been keeping me up in the night so i went back to the doctors today. she asked me about fatigue (im tired but nothing too extreme) and she asked me about my vision (which triggered me into remembering that the doctor had asked me about it before). i told her about my eyesight and then she went on to ask me about being dizzy. well i have been dizzy but again didnt connect this but only when im walking around.i told her and she said that the referral did go through in may but she will add notes onto it so hopefully it speeds it up.
so what do i do?? go and google things and now im convinced thats what i got. ill be ringing for a private appointment tomorrow as i cant cope with the unknown. im absolutely petrified.
sorry for the long post just feeling anxious
