I am just after some advice and support in what is a worrying time for me this Christmas. 3 weeks ago I developed slight dizziness and went to the doctor. They diagnosed an inner ear infection. 3 days later I started to get cold chills up my legs from my feet to my knees. I also started to feel very weak and tired. I have a two year old and a 7 week old so I need my energy and I notice easily when I am not right. I then woke up 2 days later and struggled to stand on my legs and walking to the toilet felt like a chore that I had to put effort into. I went to A and E and they kept me on for investigation. I saw two neurologists who didn’t know what was going on. I then had an MRI which was clear and a lumbar which I do not have the results for yet.
They have me classed as under investigation for MS. I have a follow up with a neurologist for my results in 3 weeks. Since being him for 5 days I have gotten worse! I get numbness on whatever side I lie in, in bed at night. Including my bottom, chest, arms, head, face, ears. I then struggle in he day with a slightly numb right arm and right foot. Just wondering if any of these sound like standard symptoms. I have no vision issues that I can tell and no pain! I am tired though a lot and it is not just new baby tiredness! Also if the lumbar comes back as fine am I just to accept this is not MS and hope for a diagnosis of something else? Will then do that or just send me home?
sorry for all of the questions this Christmas Eve. I am having a rough time with it all. I am very upset that this is all happening so soon after having a baby.
any advice or support would be appreciated xx
