Good morning Kiera, and thanks for your post.
Four years ago, I had a bout of double vision - left eye that lasted for two weeks. Eye specialist advised that I had some kind of nerve damage (?). Then there was absolutely nothing for almost two years - other than gall bladder surgery.
Then about two years later, my left eye went again, no double vision, but a strange feeling going on in my eye, and I noticed that this eye's view was dimmer than my right eye. This strange sensation that I had lasted for about 2 or 3 months or so.
about the same time, I was expriencing some dizziness, etc, kind of a head fog, and noted even before this that I would get very tired - the fatigue did not match the activity. I have only just realized that when I get really tired, my head does not work right, get that foggy feeling, etc, etc, and if I take a nap, it takes that yukky head feeling away (only took me two years to figure that one out!!!!!!)
Then I started to have problems with low blood sugars, as my insulin levels were 3X the norm. This took about 6-8 months to finally get that under control...had to modify my diet greatly eliminating most if not all sugars - which in the long run is not a bad thing!
Then I had inner ear problems going on - plugged, achy ears, and along with this dizziness etc. That lasted for awhile, and then went away.
NOTE: that during all of this, experiencing stiff and sore neck and shoulders....which went away for months, but then came back the end of last summer, and it is just now starting to go away again.
My lips last summer went numb for a couple of days. Then my right temple, right down the side of my face and into my ear really ached, and a bit of numbness along the side of my face - this lasted for about two weeks.
Then my hands started to go tingly and numb. My family doctor thought that it was strange that both hands were going numb, but shrugged his shoulders and wrote it off as a pinched nerve. I began to see a physical therapist, who was having me do things to leviate the pinched nerve - however this was not working.
Then I began to get that electric shock feeling from by my back down to my toes whenever I bent my head forward. I mentioned this to my doctor again, and again he just shrugged his shoulders - writing it off again as a pinched nerve. But when I mentioned this to the physical therapist, he put the brakes on - I was in to see a neurologist right away, followed by a MRI within a week, and the rest is history.
Fatigue/tingly and numb fingers which intensity varies through out the day - however it seems not to be as intense as it was/electric shock down to my toes - again does not seem to be as intense - and posture really does play a part in this/legs-feet ache a bit from time to time - but usually when I get really tired/inner trembling - which usually occurs, but not everytime, right after I wake up from a sleep.
Lower back pains, headaches on and off over the last two years.
I have been on Copaxone for 16 days....so yes, I am a newby!
Have a great day, Gary
