Basically, I’m probably scaring myself but I’m worried I’m going to have a diagnosis of MS. My symptoms are: for the last couple of years increasing periods of vertigo, particularly when eating, which last only for 5 seconds or so but I’m getting it a lot more frequently than I used to; my hair is suddenly not growing very fast, after it grew 2-3 inches in 3 months last year but having had it cut again in August it’s grown the same amount and that was 7 months ago; increasing numbness/pins and needles in various parts of my body, particularly my upper back, feet and hands. It’s got to the point where I can’t read a book in bed for long because my hands start to fall asleep. The sensation never lasts long, but it’s starting to affect how long I can sit in one position for.
I’ve had blood tests and I’m waiting for the results. I suppose what I want to hear is that these aren’t necessarily symptoms of MS; I can only find out so much from the Internet. Sorry, I am just scared because this pins and needles thing feels like it’s on the verge all the time and it’s causing me anxiety.
