Good morning all
I am new to this forum and haven’t posted yet but I am in need of some advice please.
I hope you can help.
I have been experiencing some symptoms of Ms over the past few months (have probably had years of symptoms). Since nov I have had tingling pins and needles weakness in all limbs and neck pain.
My history is
migraine with aura in my 20’s
5 years ago numbness in left arm twice
shooting pains in feet on and off for years along with restless legs
one episode of vertigo with vomiting
one very bad back spasm where I couldn’t move.
so in November this all turned into left sided numbness and tingling all down my body spread to the right side briefly this has since improved but has left my ankles weak and I keep getting intermittent complete loss of arm control.
i have bladder and bowel dysfunction (constipation and loss of urge to wee) and a twitch under my left eye.
And awful insomnia
I went to see a neurologist last week but she didn’t take a complete history and gave me a 5 minute neuro exam which she said I passed but had hyper reflex in my legs. She discharged me back to the GP as she doesn’t think it’s Ms??
I am booked in for an mri of Brain and c-spine in 5 weeks.
The neck pain is not controlled by regular medication and I’m in a lot of discomfort.
The Gp prescribed amytriptyline to help control the pain and help me to sleep but I’m worried about the effect on my bladder with this??? She will not discuss anything else with me until my report from neuro goes back to her
my question is
can I go to a&e with this neck pain as it’s becoming unbearable and the weakness/numbness in my arms is a new symptom or do I have to wait for my MRI?
Any advice would be most welcome xx
