I am a 24 year old female. I woke up on a Saturday morning in December and my left knee was completely numb. I thought maybe I had slept on it wrong. I was getting ready to go out of town for a short vacation. So I jumped in the shower, and when I was shaving my left leg I felt pins and needles times a thousand. I thought that was weird but again, told myself maybe my leg was asleep. I decided to just go about my days until a week later, I realized it wasn’t getting any better. By that time my left leg was numb, loss of sensations, but certain things triggered crazy pins and needles sensations, burning sensations. So I decided to go to the ER. Doctor did a Ct scan on my brain and spine. Said all looked normal but said to see my primary care doctor on Monday and to be referred to a neurologist. Which is exactly what I did. Leading up until the time I seen the neurologist, more symptoms appeared. Both legs were now having sensations, although mainly my left leg. Sharp burning pains in my back and abdomen. A sharp pain in my left cheek. I lost total hearing of anything going on around me in my right ear for about 20 second, all I heard was loud church bells. (Sounds totally crazy, I know). I have fallen down the stairs once. I have an eye floater in my left eye. My reflexes aren’t as good in my left leg as my right leg. I’m extremely fatigued. Feels like I never have energy. Occasional headaches. About 1 week after these symptoms started, I had an intense amount of pain come on from my waist down. I cried for 4 hours straight, couldn’t get comfortable. When it first started I was in the car and any bump we hit in the road was excruciating. I’ve never felt pain like that before. I felt like my lower body was about to completely shut down, I finally had some relief after taking a pain pill and falling asleep. Also… for the past 2 1/2 years I have had chest pain episodes. Right where the ribcage meets the chest bone, it was an intense amount of pressure. Made it so hard to breathe. I went to the ER twice because it felt like a heart attack. Doctors have yet to figure it out. But I’m wondering if it possibly has something to do with what is going on now. Fast forward, I seen a neurologist. She sent me for blood tests to rule out vitamin deficiency and Lymes disease, all came back okay. I had an ANA test done, that came back okay. So she sent me for an MRI of my brain. This is where things became interesting. The technician pulled me out of the mri machine and said “how long have you known that you’ve had MS?” And I was appalled. I explained that I didn’t know that. So I called my doctors immediately. They apologized and said they don’t know that I have MS, but based on my MRI, I have 5 small lesions on my brain. Doctor said she was going to talk to a MS specialist. Called me a few hours later and said “it comes down to this… the lesions are nothing, or they are MS…we’re sending you for a Lumbar Puncture”. I’m terrified to say the least. They should be calling me in the next few ways to schedule the LP. Anyone else had similar experiences or symptoms or advice and would like to share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
