So, yesterday I suddenly had strong pins and needles in both legs as well as prickling sensations in my face. I’d felt ‘off’ all day but these two symptoms were totally new (only usually have numbness and pins and needles in my right leg). Anyway, got an emergency appointment at a walk in doctors as I couldn’t get an appointment at my own surgery and was basically told there was nothing they could do as I was awaiting a neuro appointment. Basically, bog off home and get on with it. Fine. Went home, went to bed, rested, slept.
Woke up this morning feeling ropey again, feeling more off balance than usual and tired. Came to bed about 7pm, so rock and roll, and feel really weird again. My little finger on my right hand feels really odd… sorry, I know words like ‘odd’ and ‘weird’ aren’t very helpful. It feels like it’s numb but it’s not?? And my right arm feels weaker than usual. I’ve also got prickling in my face again and tingling in my chin.
My normal symptoms are still there, but these new ones are concerning me. I don’t know what to do to help them ease. Obviously it’s pointless going to the doctors as there’s nothing they can do, but I really don’t want to ‘ride it out’ as the Gp said last night.
I wouldn’t go as far as saying I’m frightened but I feel a little trapped as to what to do.
