this is my third week of these symptoms which i am about to divulge and i would greatly appreciate som help.
first my hands and wrist began to become aching and shortly after they began to become sore and swollen, this sorness and swelling was intermittent between my hands, so as one hand wuold get better the other one would swell up. this carried on for abuot a week until my hands became excruciatingly painfull, at this time i visited the doctor for some pain relief and he gave me (i think) 130 mg of steroid to try and settle the pain.
That night i awoke in a sweat and i was incoherantly babbling and calling for my mother, i literally could not speak or find the words i needed, through the course of the night i woulnt let my prtner take me to the hospital for fear of being banged up in lancaster loony bin, any way to cut a long story short, i eventually ended up at the cumberland infermary hospital and slowly regained my senses. It was then that the intermittent pain began again in my right arm, elbow and foot, some times i would wake up in the morning unable to walk and by the evening i could have been doing the tango because the pain had totally dissipated.
inbeteen all tis was the inermittent numness in my right forearm, fingers and palm, you name it on my right hand and in more than one occasion it has been numb or tingling, tight, sore cramps, loss of grip.
now things have taken a turn for the worst and it started with some weakness in my arm but has now progressed into total collpse of my right shoulder muscle, it simply does not respond, i cannot raise my right arm laterally or backwards the only movement i have is to bend my fore arm at the elbow, the top part is completely dead although i can still feel the skin etc, i just cant move it.
i have had spells of forgetfulness , night sweats, but have slept fine otherwise i think, i have also bben exteamly tired like and mixing my words if anyone was to speak to me while in this state, and then no sooner does the tired ness come, it goes agin i the snap of the fingers?
i m at the neurologist on saturday 11th pleas coud someone tell me this is ms and that it will get better
