I dont really know where to start with this. Symptoms I have been having: Aching legs every day, sometimes one leg at a time sometimes both at the same time, going on now since mid January 2013. Bum and leg numbness, also pins and needles in legs and feet, going on again since mid January 2013. Memory/foggy brain/confusion/clumsiness every day for year and half +. Extreme tiredness going on for more than 2 years and have it every day. The last 3 weeks upper arms are starting to ache as well. Getting up to go to the loo at night. Im 37, so dont think this hould be happening.
I had 2 MRI’s done since last Nov. It showed various disc bulges in my back, and also a small lump in my upper right thigh. The area where the lump is has been very painful at times and is swollen. As they were unsure what this lump was I was sent to a surgeon who I seen on Monday.
As my aches and numbness in my legs started since this lump was found, I presumed that it was the lump was causing the pain. According to the surgeon, no. He said even if he removed the lump my pains would still be there. They want the lump to grow before they even look at it.
So, what im asking is, are my symptoms anything to do with MS. The aching legs are terrible, I feel as if im having to carry them round with me, they feel so heavy.
I would appreciate any thoughts anyone has.
