Hi all, I have been reading and reading this website and forums for the past few days and have now plucked up the courage to type a message ( I have a fear of sounding stupid).
i went to my GP’s last week as I have had enough of “silly” episodes as I described them but the doctor took them very serious and suspects MS. For the last few years I have had episodes of Not feeling great exhausted and had funny twitches etc.
Then over a year year ago my left eye hurt to move and had a block of blurred vision in it. I went to the opticians as thought the doctors would just say go there… the optitions described it as floaters even though they didn’t float or move ?!? The blurred vision last for a few weeks then went back to normal. A few months after then I lost sensation down the whole of my left torso I though it was strange and wondered if my bra had been to tight and decided to lose weight (which I did 2 stone) the sensation came back after a couple of months. Then a few weeks ago I started with a sensation of somdone poring hot water down my left leg which then stopped and turned into the leg feeling like it was burning like pressed up against a radiator !!! But the leg is not hot to touch the sensation is still there and has spread further up my leg and to my bum and I have lost sensation when going for a number 2 (embarrassing)… at the same time my opposite leg feels like a dead weight I can’t lift it very well and keep stumbling because of it if I’m not holding on to my 2 year olds pram I feel very unstable. I just feel like I’m dragging it around. Also I had a uterine prolapse over a year ago which they have pulled back into place with mess and a quite an extensive operation the hospital but it down to childbirth but I have had easy quick labours??? I read on line last night that a prolapse can be caused by MS. I’m starting to worry now that I’ve had this longer than I thought. Don’t really know why I have typed all this I just needed to put it somewhere the doctors referred me to a neuro Ive had a letter from them saying they are reviewing what they want to do with me and will write back ??? They haven’t even seen me???
Sorry for the short story xxxx
