I’ve felt ‘strange’ for some time now. I’ve had Ulcerative Colitis for about 10 years…comes and goes…but at the moment its not too bad. My head has been feeling weird …lightheaded and dizzy and feeling quite ‘detached’ for a long while now…I used to put it down to the meds that I was on for my UC. I no longer take them and haven’t for over a year…so no that. I am now going through the meno…(no periods for nearly two years) maybe its that…I also have tingling in my feet and hands…and often wake up with numb hands. I was referred to the Orthopedic who sent me to occupatin therapist to give me slpints (they thought carpel tunnel or raynaulds). I also had pain in my foot…and I found out after xrays that I had a spur on my foot…which was treated with cortison injection.
For all of this I have been seeing my UC consultant who referred me.
A few weeks back I felt so unwell that I went to my docs…(who I NEVER see) I was made to feel that it was all in my head and that I was going through a phase. He sent me for more xrays and physio. I had the xrays last week, I went to my docs yesterday…again he made me feel like it was all in my head.
Iam very worried…he isnt…he said to me ‘are you worried its ms’ I said ‘I dont know Im not a doctor’…he also said he doesn’t think it is.
Some of my symptoms are painful feet…especially one of them which feels like someone is twisting it. Tingling in hands and feet…numbness in hands sometimes on waking. Detached, dizzy, lightheaded, drunk feeling. Feeling like Im gonna faint when I go out. Stiff fingers …weakness in legs…like they don’t belong to me…strange feeling all down left side…to name but a few.
