Maybe you can help me.
I’m a 55 year old male of previous good health.
My symptoms started about 6 months ago
(2 weeks after 2nd astrazeneca vaccine, not sure if its connected )
Started with tingling in my fingers and feet.
I noticed when I walked I had a slight jelly leg feeling. I thought they would just disappear in few days but it didn’t.
The first 2 months I had very mild symptoms looking back.
After a couple of months I noticed I was very very slightly numb on both legs up to my waist. After 4 months the numbness had gotten a lot stronger in the feet and had spread further up on to my shins and knees.
Also for the last 4 months I’m getting muscle twitching/faciculations all over my body every day.
Arms, legs, body, face,lips,nose you name it its twitching at some point throughout the day.
Anyone else get these fasciculations??
This last month I’ve noticed the overall numbness up to the waist has also increased. All my muscles in my legs are now stiffening and I’m now struggling walking, everything feels stiff. The numbness seems really to be intensifying the last couple of weeks. Im getting quite concerned now. My fingers still have tingling and the top of my arms now ache.
I feel my symptoms worsening almost on a daily basis I’m getting very worried.
I’ve seen various neuros who send you away to see how you get on. (All done in a very nice way making you feel reassured and there’s nothing to worry about)
What I want to ask is have any of you had numbness and stiffness in the legs that have followed my pattern.
Can anyone identify with my symptoms?
How long did it last?
How did it start, did it get worse/better over time?
I would be very grateful to hear of anyone’s experience/comments.
