Hello lovely people,
First I’d like to say thank you for previous help. I just need a little encouragement to push on through for answers.
Little background… March last year all I had was a numb little finger for a week. August I had visual field disturbances and severe hip pain for weeks. November hip pain for a month again and then two months of Neuro symptoms like tingling, burning itching, (in both arms and legs, but much more on left side) worsening with heat, balance issues, face and scalp tingling and even was admitted to the hospital with chest tightness and feeling unable to breath. (Found no physical reason heart wise for this.) And since it all started, debilitating tiredness and ON symptoms.
I’m now left with a different gait, trendelenburg sign positive, have to concentrate on walking as there seems to be less power in my left leg. My chiropractor it’s really concerned as this has happened in six months with no explanation.
And I think it’s starting again. Hip pain for a month and now tingling and chest pain beginning again.
I had a Nero appt in Jan, mri clear. But there was a spot on it which she didn’t address with me. She said migraines. She can’t explain my nystagmus and said about my freezing hands and feet ‘welcome to being a woman’. I just feel she really had decided on migraine before she started and didn’t want to do anything else. I asked what if I have another episode and she said ‘well I’ll see you but don’t know what I can do.’
I just wanted to ask for advice from you lovely lot, if you would push for more answers. I have a two year old, I can’t be in bed for days.
I saw my gp today and said I’d like a second opinion. He told me my Neuro is excellent as he knows her. If she said no ms then no ms. He also said if the MRI was clear then I don’t have ms. I corrected him on this point but he argued with me. He’s done another referral to an ms specialist because I insisted. But it’s the same hospital…
I just feel a bit bruised from both of the docs. I know some people have seen loads of Neuro docs to get an answer, so really I’ve been through nothing compared to some, but I suppose I’m just asking for advice on a situation such as this.
