Hi, not yet diagnosed but seem to have lots of valid symptoms that seem to fall under the MS umbrella.
ok here goes my symptoms are pins & needles, numbness & burning in both feet and hands. Numbness & tingling in face started off as just my chin but now it’s 70% of my face. I can feel it twitching away but when I look in the mirror it looks normal but it feels like my face is falling off my head - does that sound weird or familiar to you? Forgot to mention the painful right eye & awful pinprick pain behind right ear.
omg my memory is shocking, I can be asked to do something at work and by the time I have turned away it’s gone totally forgotten. My thought patterns & trying to find the right words is really getting me down I feel like a shadow of the old me. I tend not to join in with conversations in the office because I’m scared of making a fool of myself because I can’t find the words. Writing an email is turning into a nightmare.
Not sure if you would see a link but I went through menopause in my 30s, had ovaries removed 2 years ago, diagnosed with osteoporosis & a T9 fracture in January.
Doc noted earlier this year I was very low in B12 in 2016 & not treated, had loading doses, monthly jabs & then weekly. Neurologist said if it hadn’t cured me it wasn’t the answer & was advised to go cold turkey! It’s been a month now & I feel like death warmed up.
saw the neurologist last month & had second brain scan last week, waiting to see a neuropsychologist- not sure what’s going to happen.
Just been diagnosed Duloxetine, I am just desperate for help I’m in so much pain & not sleeping at all.
Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
