Do any of you have just spinal lesions??
after receiving clear head and neck MRI my neurologist put my many symptoms down to migraines and discharged me back to my GP. I booked an appointment with my GP who I have seen over the years… the day of my appointment I was struggling to walk, my speech was stuttered and slurred and my hearing had gone in my left ear. She told me there was nothing she could do for me and that it was all in my head. I burst in to tears and walked out. (Well a walk of some kind)
weeks later and with not much improvement I called the surgery and spoke to the receptionist who put me through to the booking lady. She was wonderful and sent my appointments for a new neurologist, an opthromologist and pain management clinic.
Saw the eye Dr Tuesday who said my vision is perfect and that the sight loss is neurological.
saw my new neurologist yesterday who was surprised that I hadn’t had a full MRI. So he is sending me for a spinal one.
I thought my symptoms only started last year when I was admitted to hospital with suspected stroke. I lost use of the left side of my body for a few days. But I have since realised it has gone on longer. When I was training for the half marathon the year before, my legs kept going numb.
I have since suffered with, vision loss, hearing loss, numbness in left face arm and both legs, pins and needles all over, spasms cramping and twitching, slurred speech and muddled words, IBS, sharp pin pain.
Does any of that sounds like it links with spinal lesions??
