I’ve been having investigations for neurological problems for about a year now. Two MRI scans have shown numerous high signal lesions that may be in keeping with demyelination. I had a lumbar puncture 4 weeks ago, of which I don’t know the result yet. My consultant says that my brain MRI was abnormal but the lesions were not typical of MS, hence the LP I guess.
Anyway, I normally have various pins and needles, burning skin pains, numb face, right arm and leg, balance problems etc. But over the weekend the numb/dead feeling in my arm and leg got much worse. If I didn’t know better I would have thought I’d had a stroke (no other stroke symptoms). I feel slightly better today but still worse than last week. My husband says go back to my gp (consultant appt 27th April) but I wonder if it’s worth it. There won’t be much they can do so what’s the point. I must admit I was quite scared over the weekend at the sudden worsening.
So do I go and see my gp or wait it out? I don’t know!!
