I am really looking for some advice after a friend asked if I’d ever been tested for MS (She had another close friend who had it) and it got me thinking…
Over the last few years I’ve had a few wierd symptons, i started to get what the doctor decided was migraines about 6 years ago, basicall i just reandomly lose my vision and it seems like im looking through broken/blurred glass, i have no pain with it and it lasts about half hour and then goes. Over the last 2 years i guess ive only had this occur about 2 or 3 times.
In 2009 i started to suffer from pain in my hands and feet and a “twanging snsation” in my fingers when i pulled or reached for something, the doctor sent me to a Rheumatolagist who told me i had inflamation in all my joints? the bloods were all clear but he thought i may have Rheumatoid Arthristus (Sero Negative) And it was a case of just seeing how it all goes.
I’ve been OK for the past year or so but over the last month i have complete numbness in the back of one of my feet (If i stretch the foot out it twangs and really hurts) I also have numbness in one of my thumbs, if i move it in certain directions in twangs and fizzes?? and altho its numb i know if its being touched and it can be over sensative. I also have pain/aches in the back of my legs, started about 3 weeks ago in the crease behind the knee and is now radiating around the leg and the other leg is now “aching” too. I get pins and needls all the time if im sitting watching TV etc, typing this now my legs and feet are a bit buzzy (Sorry for strange descriptions!) I have also had "jumpy legs for years. The pain/ache in my legs is getting me down now as it wakes me up during the night.
I saw my GP and he has run a load more bloods but just says he’ll refer me back to Rheumatolagist as they stick to the RA diagnosis which im very unsure about and have never tested posative for it nor do x rays show anything.
Sorry for the long list guys, just wondered if any of this makes sence to any of you…
