I’m 47 new to the forum and know very little about MS. I’m looking some advice and support as I feel completely lost and out of my depth at the moment.
The past four weeks I have numbness and pins and needles in both hands. This is worse when sitting and lying down. The worst time is at when I cannot sleep with the pain in both shoulders, arms and hands. I am dropping small items like spoons, mobile phone and spilling coffee and sugar when trying to put them into a cup. I occasionally when I am walking take a light head and the only way I can describe it is as I’m going to the side .
I have been to GP he has referred me for a orthopedic assessment.
Blood tests has revealed low haemoglobin, low liver function and raised ESR.
I’ve had recent headaches with visual disturbances. I now suffer from constipation when beforehand I’d have had IBS.
Has anyone had a similar experience or am I worrying unnecessarily.
