New here, so hope I’m using this forum correctly!
Last week I was told I have “likely new MS” (they’re just waiting on the antibodies confirmation, I think) after a pretty telling MRI and a whole host of symptoms. My entire left side (hand, torso, and lower half) has gone partially numb, I had extreme prickling/tingling initially which has calmed down, and spasms in my toes have also gone away. But the numbness has now spread to my right foot, and I’m panicking.
They told me by the MRI it’s most likely relapse-remitting, but no definite confirmation. I’ve had these symptoms for about 4 weeks now, and was wondering how long, generally, they could last? For the most part, they’re sensory, but I’m on a 12-17 week waiting list to see an MS specialist. I struggle with anxiety, so obviously the not knowing is causing huge distress and I’m jumping to the worst-case scenario.
