I don’t really know where else to post this, but I figured I could get some feedback from people who have actually experienced similar neurological symptoms.
I have not been diagnosed with MS. I have been having some strange issues seemingly related to the CNS for about three years. I’ve had zero injuries, and recently found out that MS runs in my family on both sides.
My symptoms began three years ago. I took a nap, and woke up with an excruciating pain shooting up my spine to the back of my head. I went to the emergency room. They did an x-ray of my spine, and found nothing. The spinal pain began to subside a bit, but then pain spread to literally every part of my body. It felt like pressure/numbness/tingling/electricity. I started having constant muscle spasms and weakness accompanied by strange rashes and flu like symptoms. I experienced visual disturbances and general confusion/memory problems. I ended up in a wheelchair for three months. I only saw orthopedic specialists. Every doctor assumed it was lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. All vitamin levels and other tests were normal. After those three months, the symptoms gradually faded (mostly).
Three years later, I am now having severe muscle spasms again. My muscles feel extremely weak, causing me to drop things regularly. My arms are pretty much just spastic, wet noodles at this point. My coordination in general is completely off. Today I experienced that same squeezing, electricity-like pain in all of my limbs wherever the muscles had been spasming. I get a weird squeezing pain around my upper abdomen as well. There’s a vibrating sensation in my fingers. And i frequently have trouble walking. Yesterday I had a numbness in part of my face and I felt a feeling that was like spiders running around on my scalp. I started to get kinda dizzy and suddenly vomited… Then I went to work… At a restaurant… Full of glass dishes. Lol. Yay! My fumbling arms and legs aren’t doing well in that environment.
If anyone could tell me if any of this is reminiscent of their symptoms, or symptoms of MS in general, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
