The last couple of days I have been experiencing some weakness in my left leg, going from the area around the base of my spine all the way down to my foot. Sometimes it extends upwards into my left arm and shoulder.
This is a totally new symptom for me and otherwise I feel well but this comes in waves and is really uncomfortable (though not painful).
I contacted my MS nurse about this this morning and my neurologist has asked me to come in to see him in six days time.
I am wondering if my recent MRI has shown new lesions or if they are going to switch my meds. I’ve been taking Copaxone since diagnosis 1.5 years ago.
Does anyone else experience this weakness on one side of their body?
I am kind of freaking out right now to be honest and I can’t sleep. My mind races from thinking it could be something worse than MS to my MS progressing, I’m just so panicked. I feel like ever since my MS journey began I am so afraid of my body and what’s to come. Every little ailment I have I freak out it is something bad because I’ve been down the road of having been told I have an incurable illness.
I am generally quite a positive person and I just got on with things after diagnosis but this health anxiety is really getting to me now.
Sorry for the super long post, hoping there is someone out there who can relate!
