Hi,I was diagnosed in Jan 07 after a year of tests.
Started with a pain above my nose and GP thought it was a sinus problem,then I got spots in the upper half vision of my left eye (bottom half ok). GP asked me to go to an optician who was concerned as to what she saw and the tests began.
I kept getting appointments to see a MS doctor and had nothing to report as sight problem only lasted about two weeks.
Anyway, in Feb 2010 I started to walk kind of strangely after half a mile. Now I walk with a permanent limp, have an electronic foot-lifter and the lifter effect subsides after a period ( LEFT SIDE LEG AND FINGER PROBS).
I’m unstable when walking on uneven surfaces because of the ballance problems and left hand fingers are becoming more and more useless.I also feel my legs are week, get cramp in left foot little toes and outside ankle area.As I wake in the morning I stretch and the fingers of my left hand go into a spasam occasionally and left leg feels as if it doesn’t belong to the rest of my body. Oh, and and get back pain quite a lot.
Does anybody have a time scale as to when things get a lot worse?
Going to MS physio tomorrow.
Going to bed now,goodnight.
