Hey I’m new here! I do not have MS (as it stands) but I have been having some worrying symptoms for a while so today I took the step of actually telling a GP. The GP has asked me to have a blood test next week and go from there.
Obviously whenever I Google my symptoms MS comes up as a main hit. What I wonder is, am I being dramatic thinking these symptoms might be MS?
My symptoms are the following;
-frequent urination - this is nothing new, something I’ve struggled with for over a decade, have learned to live with it.
-struggling to walk due to heavy/stiff legs & pain & weakness like going to fall over - this is new & has happened intermittently. It has worried me as a healthy (???) 34 year old - as it makes me feel like a frail old lady like I’m going to fall over.
-lower back pain when wake up in the morning - struggle to stand up - has been happening intermittently for months
-brain fog - but I have had Covid in the last few months so I am presuming it’s that to be honest.
-new clumsiness - dropping things and smashing them also quite new
-pins and needles / numbness in hands/feet/lips/fingers
And obviously fatigue but I mean who doesn’t have fatigue in this day and age?! So I don’t really worry too much about that.
Intrigued to hear peoples thoughts. My sister thinks I just have chronic fatigue as she has had similar symptoms with leg weakness in the past. But as I had such a bad day yesterday with simply walking I thought maybe enough is enough and I should use the NHS for once.
