I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask this but I can’t find anywhere else to ask.
18 years ago (I am m45) I lost all the senation or feeling in my right leg, no motor problems, just lost the feeling, I could stick a pin in it and feel nothing. I went to my GP and ended up with an MRI scan. This showed some scaring on the sclerotic sheath (I think how they put it) so I was then sent for a lumber puncture, which produced, as I am sure many of you will agree, the most horrific pain in my head!!
I returned to my GP for the results, obviously expecting the worst but she said that there were no prtiens in my blood which are normally present in someone with MS. So I carried on as normal and just got on with my life, then a year later I started to get a sensation on my kneck, like it was wet or hot or both, and I also started to get pins and needles in the fingers of my laft hand, which I still have. I went bak to my GP and he sent me for another lumber puncture, thanks Doc!!
Still nothing there. So again I just carried on with life. I have had different syptoms over the years but nothing that thankfully stopped me living day to day. I even took up running again with the higlight being in a 10 mile race in 2006 I think which I completed in 68 1/2 minutes, so obviously the medics were right.
But, for the last year or so I have had the sensation of electric shocks in my spine and legs if I bend me head forward, yep, Lhermitts sign. I just put “tingling in my spine and legs” in to Google and the first thing that came up was Lhermitts sing and MS. Every symptom I have even had and put in to google comes back with MS. I know you can google from a head cold to a brain tumor in 30 seconds but the coincedences are just too regular.
For information I once read in the news papers about how antiphospholipid syndrome. or sticky blood can give similar symptoms to MS, so I went to my GP again, had my blood check and the markers while higher than normal were not too high, I was not diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome.
So to finish, I am just wondering if there is anyone on here who has had a similar experience or knows of someone who has. I am going back to my GP in a couple of weeks to talk about this Lhermitts sign
