If this is a copy of the post then yes it shows to everyone as did the original.
I’m confused about whether this posted, because sometimes I can see it and sometimes not. So i’m going to post it again…
Thanks for the flowers Don!
Right, so the doctor I saw seems to think it is a B12 deficiency, as apparently that leads to pins and needles, and it’s likely i’m deficient as i’m vegetarian. So I’ll get the bloodwork for that next week.
I rightly or wrongly decided not to mention MS because I thought she might take my other symptoms less seriously if it was clear i’d been googling But when she asked if I had other symptoms and I mentioned itchiness in my ankle and the heat symptoms she said she didn’t think they were related. So I’m not sure what to think. In the last week I’ve been getting a kind of buzzing sensation in my lower leg as well, and I woke up with my whole leg numb a couple of nights ago.
Would you guys recommend pushing for further tests? I’m not in any pain and it’s not affecting my life at the moment. (Incidently, I get clicking in my knees and my right hip. If I walk a long way or run then my knees are sometimes sore during or afterwards. Arthritis is in my family so I’ve always assumed that was just dodgy joints and have ignored it as much as possible. That wouldn’t be related- right?)
