Hi everyone,I am in bed after my lumbar punchar!
cant wait to find out what’s going on with my body.(7 years now)
ok so here’s my story.
woke up one morning 7 years ish ago and lost the sight in my right eye…for only about 10 minutes.(very scary)
i made a appointment with the doctors as this was very scary,but before I saw the doctor I was driving to do my shopping which was only a couple of days after eye sight problem and all the right side of my face went numb (and felt like pins and needles.Anyway I saw the doc who sent me for a brain MRI…I received a letter from a MS clinic also asking me to go there to see a consultant and discuss results.
i went and was told I have several lesions in my frontal lobe,but didn’t think it was anything to worry about so off I went.
Well I was still getting strange symptoms which always came and went apart from swollowing problem and that was always there.
heres a list of things going on
loss of sight for short period of time,numb on right side of face,problems swollowing my own spit,pins and needles in legs toes fingers,dry eyes,blind spot in both eyes only in dark,sharp pains in head,fatigue
Numb in chin when running
Stabbing pains in arm left
Stabbing pains in head left
Leg numb right
Heavy head feels like I have a head like bowling ball that my neck can’t hold up
pain under right rib…
so I didn’t go back to the doctors about this until about two years ago as I thought well I’ve been checked out and they obviously don’t think there’s a problem but I thought things were getting worse!
so I went back to docs to be told the MS clinic wanted me to go back 6 months after my first app if symptoms !!!
but I had never received a letter or any info about this!!!
so doc sent me for another brain MRI and referred me to a neuro…
went to see him and he was lovely said no real change on MRI compared to 7 years ago but said he wanted to do some tests so I had bloods done to check for mimicking diseases which came back fine and then yesterday I had a lumbar punchar (not pleasant…I have a appointment on the 24th of august with consultant to talk about results.
what do you all think about it being MS NOT LONG NOW!!!
