Hi all, I shall try to be brief but wondered what members thought about my current symptoms? 20 days ago I started with constant right sided weakness, arm and leg and periods of confusion, cognitive difficulty and disorientation. Within a few days I had started with pins and needles mainly in arms and hands during the night. In addition I have tingling and electric shocks all parts. Sensations are also present in face, finger right hand index goes completely numb. At worst I have had my foot turn in and I have noticed more I do or think the more the symptoms worsen. I have had some head pain but not too bad and on just one night the pins and needles and numbness in legs was accompanied with a pain I have not had before, kind of pressure and burning but only one night of that sensation. My coordination is affected also and every movement or thought process requires a lot of effort.
Now to complicate I had a brain haemmoerage 6 years ago and about 10 months later had the onset or right side weakness which at that time they thought was a TIA, i have had intermittent feelings of right sided weakness since then. About two years ago the weakness came on and stayed for 9 days, again had brain scan to check for bleed, nothing found. A year ago I had Lehemmets (sorry for spelling) I.e.chronic electrical shocks pins and needles down neck when I moved head down. I have had IBS symptoms for years and because I also have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome I have attributed my fatigue and joint pain to that.
the symptoms now are overwhelming and I returned to work this week but was so confused after a long drive I achieved nothing a short walk to the photocopier saw me stranded given the numbness and weakness right side, my mobility is affected badly I have a CT booked this week as a caution and wait to see neuro and have a MRI but I wondered if these were symptoms others experience. Just had eye test and eyesight failing quickly, right side worse but no apparent nerve issues. I have had B12 deficiency tests, all ok. I am having bad functioning. I have had on a few occasions mild tremor right hand only I am wondering if all along I have had MS flare ups
Grateful for your thoughts
