for the past 4 weeks i have been having some strange sensations in my right leg, Dead, numb, burning , tingling which has now travelled up to my right arm. my leg feels better but slightly weak. Although i can walk fine, balance, hop etc. i have been in australia for 3 weeks but over the past week my eye has been feeling blurred and having some floaters. when i landed back on Saturday i decided to go to a and e to get checked, expecting them to say it was nothing. However the doctor said my symptoms were that of early MS. my aunt has MS and since he said that (he never mentioned anything that MS in A and E) i have been in shear panic which has intensified everything ontop of jet lag. He said i would need to go for an urgent MRI and i should see my GP on monday (today) to start the process.
i have seen my GP today who said he hasn’t received any notes from the hospital and that he will refer me to Neurology but i could be waiting months for an appointment. i am now so confused and even more worried. The A and E doctor had called southmead and was asking if he should be giving steroids to help straight away, i feel the hospital was really worried and the doctor i saw today didn’t seem bothered.
i am totally freaking out and wondering whether i should go private? i know my symptoms are probably worse now im worrying but i just don’t know what to do with myself.
