I have spent hours upon hours reading the forums over the last few weeks looking for some answers.
I have an MRI of the C and T spine in a months time, my doctor says he ordered it because I am worried.
About three weeks ago I developed a burning pain on both sides of the spine between the shoulder blades on the T spine. The muscles on either side of the spine also went into spasm. I am not sure what happened thought it was due to poor posture but found it really hard to sit comfortably. In trying to get comfortable I realized that when I bring my chin to my chest and flex my upper back I would get a buzzing electrical sensation in my lower back on the right side. I’m petrified that this could be Lhermittes. It is intermittent. Comes and goes and somedays I don’t have anything. It’s been three weeks now and my back had gotten much better but the sensation is still there subtly. I find myself testing through out the day to see if its there. Sometimes I get the feeling by simply rounding my spine without dropping the chin to the chest.
This is the only symptom I have. I am scrutinizing every little sensation in the body. My doctor said it will take 6 months to see a Neurologist.
Does this sound like Lhermittes? Is Lhermittes always a sign of MS.
For those of you who had Lhermittes as a first symptom, how long did it take before other symptoms began to show.
I’m so confusing at the moment.
Thank you for reading.
