Evening everyone sorry for this long winded message in advance.
Been to my GP today for the second time this week with symptoms i have had for a few weeks now. Shes referred me as a
matter of urgency to Neuro but i have to wait 12 weeks, i tried to look at private but still had to wait until the end of Sept
It started off where i was getting what i called a “going to sleep” sensation in my hands, they would just feel numb (right hand first). For last couple years i have randomly woke up in the night and the right side of my scalp and forhead/cheek would be numb i put this down to sleeping “funny” and it would be gone by the morning time. For the last three weeks my numb fingers are now on the left hand (thumb, index and little finger) and i am having periods of numbness on my right temple/scalp, but the thing that is really irritating me is a numb tongue, its driving me mad, i can still taste food etc but i have a metallic copper taste in my mouth rarely goes.
The only new thing i have had for the last couple of weeks is a sinus headache i did tell my GP this. All my bloods are fine, there are no vit deficencies or anything else out of sync (they did note my infammatory markers are high). So im left with a pain in my right temple (not quite a headache) with numbness and numbess in my left fingers and a numb tongue with not much reassurance. She was open enough to say she thought it was highly unlikely there was a tumor as i passed all the neurological tests and she had a look into the backs of my eyes etc, but did the urgent referral for suspected MS…
Has anyone else had these symptoms and how long did they last for?
Sorry for the long message x
