Firstly I just wanted to say what a fantastic website and forum. There is so much information and support. Thank you to all those you have set this up and continue to contribute.
Im going through a dark time at the moment. I went to see my doctor recently and explained that I have been having leg problems for approximately 6 years. It started about 6 years ago and then it came back, keeps coming back. I put off seeing a doctor because I kept thinking it’s gone away now and then 2/3 months later it comes back. It’s always my right leg, feels like I cannot walk as well and friends, family have noticed it too. In the last week I have now noticed pins and needles in my right arm and hand and also sometimes in left hand, also some pins and needles in my legs at times.
My doctor was great. She took my bloods and found there was no abnormalities and now she has referred me to a Neurologist. Waiting for the appointment now. I am keeping a log of my symptoms so that I can take this to the neurologist and also for me to keep track because they come and go. I’m scared and worried. Fingers crossed it won’t be MS but the doctor suspects it could be and is making the referral with that in mind. She did ask about visual disturbances and I haven’t had any of them which is good, because she said that visual disturbances are common in ms and it is more likely to be ms if I had visual disturbances (I’m paraphrasing).
Any advice would be much appreciated.
