Hello. I am a 22 (almost 23) year old woman looking for some advice please.
Back in january 2007 I had some very strange symptoms.
One night I woke up with a dead arm and leg where I had been laying on them and the feeling spread to my cheek for about a minute and then went.
A few nights later the same thing happened but this time it spread to my lips and this time I couldn’t spreak for about a minute as my lips were actually like a dead weight!
It happened one more time but this time it spread to my nose and only lasted about half a minute.
Every time it happened I had tingling on and off all over my body the day after it had happened.
At the same time my vision slowly went funny. I had double vision for about 2/3 weeks.
I also felt just generally unwell during this time, I was sick a few times, was exhausted and kept getting head aches.
I saw my dr and my optician. The dr said the numbness was most likely a trapped nerve and that the double vision could be because of sinusitis which I had just got over. The optician said my double vision was probably due to a lazy eye.
All the symptoms went away slowly and I tried to forget about it. But then a lady who I helped care for passed away from complications due to ms (she was very elderly) and it got me thinking as well that ms was never ruled out for me. And I know that with ms you can go a long long time with out any symptoms and then it can appear again.
I spoke to my dr yesterday and she basically said that we just have to wait and see if I get symptoms again.
But I was hoping some one on here might be able to give me some information and advice? Thank you in advance.
