Hi guys, I’m new to this forum and was wondering if anybody could tell me whether or not I’m going mad! For the last six months I’ve had numb patches on my back, hip and wrist. These patches pop up suddenly and I can tell when they’ve popped up because I immediately get a weird sensation in that area. Yesterday a new patch popped up on my thumb. I’ve seen 4 doctors who have all told me it’s definitely not MS, including a doctor in France who did a neuro exam on me following an ear infected (I wasn’t worried about MS at that time, French doctors were just very thorough because of my dizziness). Since then I’ve had 2 other neurological exams which have all been fine and because I’m having no other symptoms I’ve been told not to worry.
Anyway! I called 111 last night because my thumb went numb and I spoke to a GP, she was very understanding that I’m worried about these weird sensations, or lack thereof. She wants to refer me to a neurologist just because of how long my symptoms have lasted however, she assured me that it doesn’t sound like MS whatsoever.
Id really just like to know your opinions, I’m hoping it’s caused by stress or something as my symptoms started following a very stressful solo move to France to study.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated everyone at home is fed up of my worrying. Also I’m a 22 year old female.
