Firstly i would like to say hello too everyone, and hope your all keeping well in this mad world we seem too find our selves in.
Secondly i hope i don’t offend anyone with the title of this thread, but well i really hope i don’t have MS.
I’m not one for googling symptoms, but i have been having a really crap time from a couple of weeks before Christmas. A bit of back ground into what’s been going on.
In 2018 i had my first run in with Vertigo, it was bad couldn’t smile or anything, doctor thought i was getting that thing where the side of your face drops ( can’t for the life of me remember the name of it ), but thankfully it wasn’t, just bad vertigo which lasted a couple of months.
Had a couple of more bouts of vertigo thankfully nothing serious, that is until a couple of weeks before Christmas this year, really bad vertigo, side of mouth numb, tingling sensation in legs, pain in centre of back, numbness in right hand which could go up to near my elbow, as if i had slept on it that sort of feeling. Then a couple of weeks clear near the end of February start of March.
Then i started to have what i can only describe as a semi Vertigo, if that’s even a thing. Thing’s don’t spin but can move slightly too the right then back, not all the time just when i do any thing physical, there is tingling in my legs which feel tired most of the time, my knees give way with no warning what so ever, really embarrassing when in public, numbness in right hand most of the time, goes down to wee finger and the one beside it, can get up too near the elbow. Also really bad balance, at times you’d think i was drunk.
The reason i’m here is my rheumatology rang me up for my review, and was going through my aliments and asked if i had a LP done, didn’t even know what an LP was. Then too my horror she said it was a test for MS, i had a MRI done in January which showed lesions Doctor said was caused by migraines, which was strange, as i never get a headache, but never thought much about it. Until as i said rheumatology mentioned it. Then i did the silliest thing that i never do googled it :(.
So i’m here looking too ask you fine people your thought’s, am i hopefully barking up the wrong tree. I really do wish i had never googled it.
