I’m a probable MS diagnosis but I posted here as I wanted the wealth of your experience. Over the last few weeks I had some of my L leg numbness and L thumb numbness and pins and needles creep back. i don’t tend to pay too much stress on these as a small blip in your health / over tiredness can cause pseudo flares. Anyway I started my period on sunday and was feeling particulalrly worse but put it down to time of month as I know some of my symptoms can worsen then.
But over the course of the day I developed the hug on my left side (it went round the L of my abdomen all the way to the middle of my back and was a very tight constricted pressure feeling). This got worse the next day and I had really really bad burning pain - my skin felt raw and sensitive and if my partner touched me or when he put some cream on my back I screamed it was so painful. This has extended up the L side of my abdomen and just under the shoulder blades on my back.
I think my stomach is also playing up as since monday I get full very quick and if I eat too much I’m in extreme pain and have pressure on the L side of my tummy (last night i had one sausage and four spoons of mash - ended up waking up at 1 starving). My bowel also isn’t right but I don’t know if thats because of my eating - my stools are loose and I go a tiny bit but many times (I’ve been thrice in the last hour - blushes).
I’m trying to avoid big meals and trying to stretch wear feasible. I’m using heat pads as the pressure and heat confuse my body into not noticing the burning pain.
I’ve had the hug before but I’ve never had any issues eating or bowel wise with it. Does this sound familiar to anyone - does anybody else get this? I’m not on any meds at present as aside from lassitude Jan - March this year I’ve been generally ok. Is there anything else I can try to do?
Sorry it’s an essay
