i started off with tingling right foot, not a big problem i was given thiamine tablets and it went away. (jan 2008)
it came back and also in left foot.
i started being clumsy and cutting myself, burning my hands etc.
saw a neuro and had MRI.
lots of small fairly insignificant things like buzzing and burning.
my neuro told me it pointed almost certainly to ms and i was to have a lumbar puncture in late sept.
meanwhile i booked a holiday to greece in august.
blinkin eck! the heat made me go really loopy. the town we were in was very hilly and one day i set off to the shop to buy a watermelon - i got lost! was staggering up the hill lugging a great big, heavy watermelon. almost in tears by the time i found the hotel.
it didnt stop when we got home because i’d got drop foot but didnt know it until i fell landing on my face.
then fell again and broke my big toe.
so october (the week before my 50th birthday) i got my diagnosis.
symptoms settled down and i had 4 fairly good years.
this year i relapsed in march and i’ve not quite recovered.
my advice is avoid getting too hot!!!
