First post here!
Last year in May I had severe tingling and loss of sensation in my right hand. This travelled all over the right side of my body and eventually dissipated. The whole thing lasted about three weeks. I have still been left with loss of sensation and slight weakness in my right hand. My GP referred me to a Neurologist and I had an MRI in August. In November at my follow up appointment my Neurologist told me I had a singular sclerosis on my cervical spine and that I had a 50/50 chance of developing MS (having another episode).
I have been really struggling since the episode with motivation, fatigue and concentration. I was watching the panorama programme last night and when one of the ladies mentioned the ‘brain fog’ it really resonated with me. This morning I have come into work and found out I have completely missed an email! I am really upset and feeling very down at the moment.
Can this one area of inflammation on my spinal cord cause these symptoms? My neurologist and the MS nurse sort of brushed this off but I am concerned.
Any advice of reassurance would be very helpful.
