Hi, im new to posting on here but I have been reading this forum for about two months now. My symptoms started at the end of January with numbness everywhere below the waist then stretched and painful feet. My doctor sent me straight to the A&E at the hospital to see a spinal reg, (didn’t know if it was a trapped nerve) who said I needed an MRI. Three weeks later I had my MRI and my doctor sent me to see a neuro, who I met on Tuesday.
I must say that after reading all about past experiences with neuros on this forum, I was kind of nervous lol. But he turned out to be one of the good guys who is a specialist in MS, thank god.
He explained everything to me and told me I had two lesions on my brain and one in my spine. His quote was that I had probable MS, he wants to do a LP and another MRI with contrast, and I had More blood taken at the hospital (I have had loads taken at the doctors) to check for infections.
After checking my reflexes he found I didn’t have much in my left leg and foot, I don’t know if this will improve with time or what.
I have got some cinnarizine for my dizziness but apart from that it’s a waiting game for me. Has anyone else here taken cinnarizine and how did you get on with it.
I just wanted to add my story on here and thank you for all the posts I have read and the advice I have taken from here. (My neuro was impressed with all my written copies of everything lol)
Thanks for reading. Indi x
