Firstly just to say this whole thing is terrifying and reading all your posts is really informative and comforting so thanks
I am 26 and potentially may be in my first MS relapse. I am fairly sure that my symptoms fit MS as I went through my mothers diagnosis with her. Im curious what other illnesses you guys or your doctors looked into before diagnosing MS? My symptoms may be something else but I really don’t know where to start with what else it could be.
A brief explanation of what’s been happening:
It started with foot drop in my right leg and within a couple of days i had lost the use of it, couldn’t raise it off the floor etc, ended up dragging it around for a couple of weeks. A few days ago movement came back but i have constant numbness and weird feelings in it, like cold/burning etc. Walking any distance makes it give up again and stop being able to move it very well. Generally feel weak and tired.
Were there any other illnesses your doctor considered? Or you found online that may have fit?
Any advice on this is really appreciated!
