this is my first post but I haven’t got a diagnosis, just need advice/support
for approximately 2/3 years I’ve had symptoms in clusters of variable timescale shortest begging a week, of weird cold/numb/tingling sensation in my hands/feet
very slow/foggy both in body movement and brain
felt as if I was walking/standing wonky/off balance
frequent trips to the toilet day/night
whilst hanging my washing out one day, I experienced one eye loosing sight / all went black and part of my face felt numb
as I walked to the back door my legs were so weak I got to sit on the floor for a while. (Not happened since)
id left it too long to confirm from 111/GP a mini stroke and nothing reported from an eye examination at optitions
my symptoms, change and seem to be strengthening, cold numb patches in my arms/legs, hands and feet, mild strange sensation on right side of my face and under my eyes.
sometimes my lower legs and feet cannot feel the floor beneath me, which feels very very strange, (I’ve not told anyone at all)
Recently my ribs all the way round felt crushed like tight at points difficult with breathing going up my stairs. This has lasted approximately 2+ months.
I’ve become especially low, I’m 44 (nearly) and in menopause (peri menopause since age 33)
i work as a mobile hairdresser (only a few clients) is getting harder, as is getting jobs done.
I’ve been to my GP on my occasions over the years, bloods say my lymphocytes are low
after my last visit with my favourite GP I mentioned my ribs and numbness has arranged a telephone psychotherapist consultation, when I missed my call and called back to reschedule it, they said it was an MS specialist/rheumatologist department (not mentioned from GP visit) so a little shocked, as I’ve suspected my self my symptoms match a possible MS prognosis.
age 21-23 was diagnosed first with chronic fatigue/M.E
sorry it’s a long, and I no there’s other symptoms I forgotten about
im very grateful for your thoughts, reply
