My wife is due to have a MRI of the head and spine on tuesday, I have to admit that I’m increasing sure that we are looking a MS but I would like an opinion. It’s only recently that this puzzle of symptoms has started to make sense. For many years now Mandy has complained of constant fatigue and it does not seem to improve even with extended periods of sleep. For several months now she has been complaining of numbness and tingling in her left arm and leg.
Prior to this, over the last six months we had been pre-occupied with chest pains as well which was initially considered to be a cardiac problem. However several visits to casualty and tests at Papworth nobody has found any problems with Mandy’s heart. Prior to that she had her gall bladder removed due to a constant pain in that area. The consultant said it appeared to be ok but could not think what else the pain could be from.
I am wondering in retrospect if this could have been “MS Hug”
She has seen a Neurologist once now and he did some basic reflex tests which were ok, but there was some weakness on the left side.
Ever since we have been married (25 years) I’ve commented that Mandy seems to walk slowly when we are out shopping.
I know we have only to wait until Tuesday (or soon after) to get more information, but I’m curious - do any of these symtoms correspond with anyone else’s experience
