Hi all, I’ve been suffering from tingly/buzzy hands and feet for about a year now, but put it down to go much I’d been climbing. I was under a physio for a shoulder impingement and she noticed my neurological symptoms and ordered an x-ray of my c spine(which was clear) and an MRI.
In april, whilst waiting for my MRI I developed a numb/heavy left leg and left side of face which lasted nearly 10 days and thinking back my vision went blurry around the same time for a couple of days as I remember saying to my husband I needed to get my eyes tested. This came and went and I got back to normal, although hands and feet were still buzzing, I almost cancelled my MRI as I didn’t think I needed it, but I was persuaded to keep appreciate.
MRI (6 weeks ago)showed multiple lesions around the ventricles.
I’ve recently spent 3 days in hospital,they treated me for a relapse of ms. I couldn’t think straight, was dropping things, stumbling, facial twitching, the numb left leg/face again and urinary retention. I had lp and I’m awaiting results, consultant feels that this looks like it is potentially ms and I’m to see him in 6 months. He offered me pregablin for my hands and feet, which I refused.
I’ve returned to climbing, walking and looking after my 3 boys on our farm but I’m finding I’m getting cramps in my thighs of both my legs, and that my toes on my left foot feel numb(but aren’t) and are being “pulled up” alot. I’ve also had a strange thing happen, once whilst out climbing and last night (midnight) when we had just got in from our drive back from France; I had a Sharpe pain on the left side of my ribs that was like a tight band around me that made it difficult to breath, the first lasted a minute the second episode lasted 5 mins. Edited to add, I also had an episode, whilst I was climbing hard, I became very shaky and confused, is this to be expected?
Is this something I need to let the go know about?
Thank you in advance, Holly
