I wanted to ask about some symptoms i’ve been having to see if anyone had any insight. I’m waiting on a second DR’s appointment and feeling very scared needless to say.
A few months ago i woke up in the middle of the night and my lips were numb and feeling quite odd. I woke my mom up and panicked, calmed down and that went away and never came back. Over the next few weeks i developed a lip twitch that has been a pulsating twitch all day even triggered by certain movements of my mouth. Still going on for a month jul-aug. I also developed body wide twitching, legs stomach arms calves butt ect. some days its better than others seems to slightly be improving but still consistent. lastly i have this low buzzing tingling feeling on my left heel only. it is not numb, no pain at all, and only felt when im trying to sleep at night. this goes away once i get up and walk around in the morning but is so annoying when i’m trying to sleep. oh i also have been waking up to very sore muscles on my left shoulder and arm, but i feel this might be how im sleeping? idk if i’m over thinking that.
so as of right now i only have an oncologst, i am in remission from hodgekins lymphoma from when i was 17. at the time i had a pediatrician which shifted to an oncologist and i never got a GP bc i would just see her for everything. at one of my follow ups i presented the twitching, tingling left foot pain ect which she did not see as consistent with MS, but possible vitamin deficiancies and lack of sleep, lifestyle ect. she also said the left foot may be a sign of long term nerve damage from chemo but another dr there said its rare to see it 6 years later and its more so a side effect during but it COULD happen. She also said she is very worried about my health anxiety- which i do have as well as general and have had the most stress in my life iv ever had as my father passed 6 mo ago suddenly. i am also newly vegetarian and eat a lot less than i probably should. as id like to attribute all of this to anxiety, it doesnt change the fact that i am feeling this symptoms and its so frustrating to not know. anyway, my oncologist was very nice and said its not MS, but she referred me to a GP anyway to help me. so now, i am waiting an appointment on the 27th. i am scared! i now can’t tell if i’m really over thinking the whole MS thing but googling has made me think it could be! any insight on this?
