Hi everyone and thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am looking for advice and understanding as to how ms shows itself as I am new to this and trying to understand things and make sense of them.
I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting ms 3 weeks ago which came out the blue but after talking through things, I have had 2 relapses with which I experience symptoms but not to the extent of the relapse.
My first was severe dizziness, slight face droop and balance which lasted about 3 weeks. Since this I have experienced on and off, cloudy dizzy head with my eyes feeling like they are crossing. It has been explained that although the relapse eased, the damage will have caused these intermittent episodes to carry on.
My second was what I thought was a trapped nerve in my leg, causing constant pins and needles, tightness like that experienced before you get a cramp and loss of touch sensation which eased after about a month. This is where my confusion is now starting and where I am seeking to understand better? Since this relapse if I walk fast or a little distance I get pins and needles in the leg which eases after I rest. Until today. The pins and needles started up but for the last few hours now I have had what I can only describe as a buzzing sensation that’s quite uncomfortable and tight. I know these intermittent symptoms are part of the damage caused after relapse but my question is, will this progress in the symptom side of things or will it ease? Is there anything I can do to ease this sensation?
I am due to get a lumbar puncture and spine MRI in the next month. My neurologist wrote down several medications for me to look at for the DMD’s which I will go on at the next appointment.
I am sorry this is quite long but really find some aspects hard to figure out or what to expect. I really appreciate any advice, own stories given?
