I have not been diagnosed with MS, however I am having a lot of unexplained strange symptoms…
Six months ago, I developed difficulty swallowing liquids - not choking, but more like gagging and strange sensations. Also i seem to have lost the ability to initiate a swallow easily because my throat doesn’t feel ready, so i have to hold the liquids in my mouth for a few seconds.
Soon after I developed pains in my legs, which lasted around six weeks 24/7. These leg pains were completely unexplained because they were quite severe, however i had not taken part in any sports or anything as such.
Then my swallowing difficulties developed and turned into difficulty swallowing food as well - food felt like it was getting stuck at the top of my throat and it was difficult again to initiate a swallow. However the difficulty in swallowing food only lasted a fortnight, but i still have difficulty with liquids every day.
Along with my swallowing difficulties, i started getting strange sensations in my tongue, which would not go away. Everyday, my tongue would burn, tingle and feel numb. However now i only feel the numbness in my tongue as soon as i wake up, which is honestly the strangest feeling i have ever had. But i also seemed to have too much saliva in my mouth as if my mouth would be filled up with it and sit at the corners of my mouth.
My hands also have a quite bad tremor and have noticed it particularly bad, when i am using my phone as my hand will shake uncontrollably, however my thumb seems to be the worst affected and its very visible.
I thought i would note that i am only a seventeen year old girl.
Have any of you experience anything similar?
