New here and just have a few questions. It tends to be a very long story, but have had symtoms for over ten years, drs never could find out what was wrong. I live in Canada and Drs have a rule one prob per visit and only 20 min. I have had 5 drs due to moving, some leaving practice ect. Now have had my Family dr for 3 years now and finally got a referral to a neuro, he is ordering a MRI because he suspects MS. My symptoms have been on and off for years but the last two years have been consistent.
im just wondering a bit about my symptoms, I know from reading the forums there is no normal with MS but I am wondering if anyone else has similar ones. Among many things, I have a buzzing in my feet, mostly at night, not painful or numb really, feels kinda like “tv static” I’m wondering if anyone else’s comes and goes or is stronger at night?
i have a major problem with my legs, my ham strings are so tight, thighs are sore, the right leg is worse causing a limp. The more I walk the worse it gets, I start to shake if I do stairs. I was gardening yesterday doing some bending and squaring. When I came in I couldn’t stand without my legs shaking. Do symptoms get worse with exercise? my lower back, upper buttocks is numb, but it’s an internal numb. My skin can feel it seems underneath.
about a year ago I had a stretch of weird problems. I had a lot of pain, then one day at work I got seriously dizzy, super hot, sweaty, and sick feeling. I decided to leave work, when I got to my car I waited for the dizziness to subside, and started driving home. On the way my arm started to get severe pins and needles, and my hands curled and cramped, I couldn’t move my fingers, I got scared and tried to hit the voice button on the car to call 911 but I couldn’t. I was 2 min from a hospital so I just drove there. My whole body had pins and needles and went numb, when I got there they put me in the waiting room for 3 hours. I ended up passing out, my blood pressure dropped super low, they cut my clothes off. They checked my heart, blood ect and everything was fine. I woke up after about an hour. I was told they can’t diagnose me in the ER, and when I was normal they sent me home. This happened three times in about 2 months. But hasn’t happened again since. Can this really be MS realated?
my calf has a weird cramping, and super weird sensation. One night my husband had his leg on my calf and after he turned over and removed his leg I could still feel his leg on me for at least 30 min later. I could feel the pressure and heat of his leg on mine but nothing was there?? Really creeped me out.
last one is the pain I have that wraps from my back to my front around my left ribs, mostly stays on the left. I understand this may be the ms hug. But I’m not sure, it’s lower then what I read about, at the bottom of my ribs. drs have ruled out everything GI related, and have had X-rays. Dosnt seem to matter if I eat or don’t eat it’s always there. It feels like my lower ribs are “folding in” no amount of meds make a difference. Thoughts,
there are many many more symptoms, weak shaky arms, cramping hands, severe pain in left shoulder, neck pain, headaches, pain behind left eye. Cold patches, bubble like sensations in legs. Just really weird stuff.
im 33, things started on and off since 2006, all blood work is normal, GI says normal, OBGYN says normal, vit levels normal. X-Rays ct scans bone density all normal. I’m just not sure, I know I have read many of the same symptoms in others but there are still so many things I don’t have, my eyes seem normal, only had one episode of big grey spot a few months ago, hasn’t come back. Can symptoms show up then leave for good? Sorry for the essay, can anyone give me some thoughts?
