I have just been to my GP to discuss my symptoms, which have been getting worse for a couple of weeks. I have
altered sensation in my left hand, left foot and right side of my face. I have also been having dizzy episodes. I had an episode of numbness/tingling in my face about 20 years ago and had lots of tests then and the words MS were mentioned then. But as the symptoms went away, I didn`t pursue it further, until now. I am being referred to a Neurologist and have to have and ECG.
I have had other health problems including osteoarthritis caused by a congenital joint defect and have had joints replaced as a result. I am scared that I will be diagnosed with MS and how this will affect my life in addition to my other problems.
Sorry to ramble on, but I haven`t talked to anyone yet at home as my children are around.
What can I expect form the Neurologist?
