I know I’m going round and round in circles here but early January, I thought I had shingles on my forehead which then spread down to my hand and then my left leg went weak at the same time my face drooped (all on the left). With time this corrected itself. Whilst I still have a slightly numb sensation, it’s not so bad now but I’m left with a weak left leg (it seems much weaker some days than others for some reason though?)
Then last week I noticed I was numb around my mid-section but on the right this time (stopping exactly in the middle), as my consultant was on his hols (he’d told me to ring him immediately if I had any new symptoms), I logged the info with my GP over the phone, for the record. This numbness is now right down to my foot on the right hand side from under my boobs.
I was at the hairdressers on Thursday and went to pay and felt all dizzy/lightheaded although was okay after about 10 minutes and I feel mildly unco-ordinated when I walk (although this could be down to my weak left leg I guess?) and I don’t quite feel with it, hard to describe.
I had several lesions on my MRI and my spinal fluid showed that I had inflammation. My VER was normal and I have my Cervical Spinal MRI next Friday.
Is there any way I could have something like a trapped nerve and it not be MS at all do you think? Why are they not investigating that? or is it that my symptoms just don’t point to it? I was wondering why they don’t do an MRI of the whole of my back rather than just my neck? who’s to say it isn’t a tumour on my spine somewhere?
