Im female, 55 yrs old and may/may not have MS.
I have had loads of trouble with my left leg in the past year.
X rays have shown wear and tear arthritis in my hip, knee and ankle.
However above this I started getting a strange feeling at the back of my knee, I thought at first it was a DVT, however this feeling changed. I then was having to lift my leg, I couldnt move it in bed unless I physically lifted and moved it.
It has progressed now to a tight feeling thigh, my shin feels weird, I have pins and needles/numb/tingling in my lower leg from just above the knee to half way down my foot. My leg is very weak and I am having to hold onto rails when using the stairs.
Fatigue, OMG, at times (afternoons mostly) I could just lie on the office floor and sleep in front of everyone. I spend the weekends just sleeping. But in saying that I dont sleep well at night, my leg really bothers me.
I have also woken with my hadns and arms gripped really tight, and when I first get up the soles of my feet are really sore.
I can no longer use my electric blanket, cant stand the heat from it, or too much heat in the house, however I have just been abroad and the heat there did not bother me.
Dizzy, inner ear infection feeling.
My right cheek feels like a neuralgia type pain.
I have had blood tests with a negative result and my GP is now referring me to Neurology. But she did say I have too many symptoms at one time for it to be MS?
However on reading this forum it would seem this is not the case.
I have written all these symptoms in a very basic list but am a bit scared that they will not look into it if I tell the Neurologists everything on my list.
