I’ll try and keep this short!
I am being tested for MS at the moment - my aunt has it, so it is quite a possibility, especially as peripheral neuropathy has now been ruled out with some NCT tests I had (also have had a brain MRI which I am awaiting the results for, and there is a lumbar puncture on the way).
My body is gradually getting more and more numb - the intensity is getting stronger and stronger - it started in my toes back in October, and has spread upwards so it now covers all of the T nerves and L nerves, plus it has started developing on the pads of my fingers.
Just supposing it is MS, are there any exercises or changes I can be making to my lifestyle, which could help ease the numbness or minimise the severity?
Everyone keeps telling me at the moment that there is nothing I can do, but surely there is something I can do, however small! Every morning I am waking up, and my legs are feeling that little bit worse - heavier and tighter, my fingers are feeling that little more numb (which is really concerning me as my line of work means I am using a computer most of the time!) It is really starting to get me down, and often many weeks go between NHS appointments when I have the opportunity to ask questions.
Really would appreciate any advice!
