I am in my forties but since late teens I have had cramps and general aches and pains especially in my legs. I have seen different gps on various occasions and been diagnosed with Reynards disease as my hands and feet get cold and painful, tested negative for rheumatoid arthritis. I have described the pains in my legs like someone is dragging a wire down the inside of my legs, the gp has responded with a bemused expression and passed it off as growing pains.
Having recently read your website’s information on MS I am more convinced this is what I have. Over the last year I have been experiencing restless legs, cramps and spasms in my lower calves and feet, tingling in my fingers, numbness in my toes and have fallen asleep on a couple of occasions at my computer. I am sure though when I go to my gp, it will be put down to stress and anxiety as I have a history of generalised anxiety disorder.
