For anyone who dares to read I should apologise for what I fear may be long winded waffle!
I have just registered and became a member and will begin my posts…
Apparently I have had RRMS for 4 and half years.
Back in 2011 I had pins and needles tingling sensation in my left hand. I got tested for carpal tunnel syndrome but results were negative. It left after 2/3 weeks. I just put it down to being left handed, working at a computer, doing overtime and a computer course.
Then, since 1st August this year I got tingling sensations all over. Soles of feet, legs, stomach and back and both hands.
I thought maybe a trapped nerve? Injury from exercise class?
I went to see my gp, followed by a private neurologist appointment (with no private health insurance), a private mri (after a right royal muck up from an a and e consultant at a local hospital). 6 weeks later, follow up appointment with private neurologist and I’m told I have RRMS.
I was given 12 day tapered dose of oral steroids. Will be followed up now within nhs.
Excuse my lack of medical informative language. Right now I just need to get it all out there.
I know there are people worse off than me.
I know I’m lucky and blessed in so so so many ways.
Today though, has been a rough day. I can’t bare this sensation in my hands!!! It is effecting every single aspect of my daily life. I just want it to go.
Think that’s me. Thank you for reading if you’ve managed this far.
Take care everyone
