Following on my weeks stay in hospital last July, due to weakness in my right leg, it’s only in the past few weeks that I’ve been able to stop using a crutch to walk with. Despite 4 MRI scans since then (head, cervical lumbar and thoracic spine), I’ve had nothing showing any lesions (apart from normal age related changes in my brain?). One thing which was picked up in my cervical spine MRI was slightly herniated discs at c5/c6 level.
I’ve also managed a couple of short bike rides the past two weekends.
Now my walking still isn’t great, but my mobility is certainly improving. However I still doubt I’d be able to do a full walking delivery at work though.
Next week will be 9 months since the onset of my symptoms, 23rd July 2020, where GP thought I had had a TIA / Stroke, so was sent to hospital! Thankfully no signs of that (unless it was missed?)
So what could this be? Was it a CIS I had in July, and I’ve been recovering since then? I am a bit worried that I’m going to get worse again. The only other thing which has been hinted at by the neurologist was “Functional Neurological Disorder”.
Next month is a repeat cervical spine MRI, and depending on the results of this, possibly a lumbar puncture. I’m also due to see the neurologist again, however there is a waiting list of many months…
