Hi everyone, I’m new here. Hoping to get some advice.
About 4 years ago my little finger on my left hand started going numb, by the end of the week my whole hand was numb, so my dad got me an appointment with his dr. I spoke to the dr about what was going on and he said that I needed to see a neurologist. So i was referred to The JR hospital for an MRI on my head and neck. The result came through and I had inflammation in my spinal cord. The Dr did sensory tests and they were fine. So she discharged me.
But a few months ago both my feet felt like they were going numb, so I went to the Dr’s and spoke to him about it, also said that I was constantly tired even though I’d had a really goods night sleep. He referred me to a neurologist in Sheffield. Things have got worse since i went to see him.
Back in July I saw my Dr at the beginning of the month and within 3 weeks I had written a full A4 page of symptoms that I was getting and also said that the feeling in my feet was getting worse. And he said "what’s going on? I said it felt like my feet were vibrating and that I get the feeling when i put my chin to my chest. He said “you definitely need to see a neurologist I will chase it up” I got an appointment for the 30th August. Luckily the hospital moved it forward to a couple of weeks ago.
I saw the consultant and told him everything. He did all the sensory tests and looked in to my eyes. He referred me to have an MRI with contrast on my head, cervical spine and thoracic spine and lumbar puncture. He also spoke to another Dr about putting me on steroids and other Dr said “no lets get the results back in 6 weeks and go from there”.
I’ve got the vibration feeling all the time it never goes away. Sometimes when I’m walking my legs feel really funny and I have to stop walking. I get to a point during the day that I have to go back to bed as I’m so tired even though i’ve had a decent nights sleep. I’ve read about the vibration feeling being Lhermitte’s sign or babers chair syndrome being one of the main symptoms of MS is that right. I also have some of the other symptoms as well as Lhermittes. Ranging from pain, bowel problems, depression and muscle spasms.
Sorry this is so long. I’ve been looking for an MS forum for a few days.
