Hi all. So my story in brief I had a tingling sensation in my left hand and arm Dec 2013 this then went away but returned before too long, I then felt a weakened sensation in my left knee and a numbness sensation on my left side of tummy, kind of rib cage area. I googled and convinced myself I had ms but everyone close to me said noooooooo don’t be daft!! I whipped myself into a frenzy and saw a neurologist Oct 2014 he examined me and basically gave me the all clear reflex/examination wise and wrote to me saying it is highly unlikely you have anything sinister but sent me for a mri just incase. Last week I got the results and it’s highly likely I have ms! I had 5/6 lesions on my spine and one at the base of my neck. I was half prepared as I had convinced myself but my goodness this has rocked my world. I have now got to have a brain scan and had a lumbar puncture earlier this week and then get the results before treatment etc begins.
My symptoms now well. ..I still have a tingling left hand and a weak left knee, I have a numb tummy and have a strange ‘head’…kind of dizzy but almost feel like I’m walking on a boat! I wonder if I’ll ever feel 100% again?
I thought writing this might help me some more in terms of coming to terms with the future. I have two young daughters, 2&7, and a hubby so lots to keep me going but….The future is a scary place right now.
