im getting myself all worked up and worrying about having MS. I’m hoping someone could reassure or lend some advice on my situation.
A bit of back ground. I started getting tingling in my hands and feet around 5 years ago. I had a brain Mri and seen by a neurologist who said it was Ms and it will go eventually.
5 years on and I still have the tingling in hands and feet but now seem to be getting it more in my legs. I get weird stingy sensations all over my body and I’m pretty sure I have very slight numbness in my left cheek, if I scratch the left side of my cheek it’s not as sharp as my right. I’ve also been getting tired muscles in my arms and back even after doing little work.
I went to my gp who suggested doing another Mri on my brain, I’ve had this done and it’s come back clear. I questioned the Dr who I saw after the scan (done privately) and he was pretty sure it wasn’t Ms.
i wish I could be happy and relived by this but I’m just not, I can’t comprehend why I’m getting all these symptoms like Ms with no other cause!
ive had routine bloods done and a check for RA. Should I be asking for a spinal Mri? Is it likely something was missed on my brain scan or I only have lesions on the spine? Should I just try and accept that it’s not Ms? But what else could it be. I really need answers as I’m driving myself crazy. Anxiety has been mentioned but surely I wouldn’t have constant tingling etc for 5 odd years??
my mum has Ms and I’ve seen how it’s tore my family and her marriage apart, I’m really scared that’s it’s Ms.
