well, I posted here last week.I had had a fantastic week and a half and then beginning of last week had return of weak/trembling arm and weakness in leg along with vertigo. The vertigo has gone(thank goodness) but my right leg seems to be progressively getting worse. It feels so weak and like jelly. I drove the children to school this morning but am already having to sit down as my leg feels so heavy and is hard to lift high enough to stop my foot dragging on the floor. Also for the first time ever I have this really weird "cold"pain in the front of my thigh. I still only have the tingling in my feet first thing in the morning, but do have a kind of vibrating feeling in my upper leg. Last night was agony I couldn’t keep still with the “cold” pain. I also have a change in my sense of touch in my right hand. Its not pins and needles or numbness, I just can’t feel things properly. I can cope with this as have got used to using my left hand more over the last few months, but the leg thing, I would desperately like some relief.
I was due to have MRI this week but this has been postponed until next week. Could these leg symptoms be MS? I thought that leg symptoms led to you lifting your leg higher? not dragging your foot?
Anyway, basically I am unsure what to do about these symptoms. My neurologist said he didn’t think there was anything to worry about and that there was probably nothing serious going on, but would arrange the head and c-spine MRI just to check. I can’t get an appointment with the GP until Jan. I don’t really want to see another GP as can’t guarantee which one it would be. One of the GPs is married to my best friend and I don’t want her to know whats happening as I know she would fuss over me, and I don’t want to put her husband in a difficult situation, as he is also my friend.
As the neurologist reassured me that there was probably nothing to worry about I am starting to think that maybe I am whinging over nothing, so am trying to ignore this but finding it increasingly difficult to cope with the leg.
Can anyone offer any advice about how to ease the leg symptoms?
Many thanks everyone x
