Scared and confused......last year I went to the Dermatologist because my face was tingling. She thought it'd be a good idea to apply ointment (it's like a chemo....I've had melanoma so I have to be careful) to take care of any sun damage that could have been there although there was nothing obvious..... It's been over a year and I keep getting that tingly feeling more often and more noticeable. I finally called derm last week thinking it was effects from the ointment and she said that I need to call my dr.. 2 days later my ear started to hurt and after an hour a so I couldn't tell what was more numb my ear or my hand. Facial numbness on the internet kept bringing up MS....it was like putting a puzzle together when I did even know I had one........I've been getting this spasm thing around my ribs....almost takes by breath away....It's really uncomfortable thot it was from gaining some weight.......I get a feeling from time to time like someone is touching the back of my head....maybe I have a ghost......my left hand just plain feels weird all the time....can't explain Long story short.....
Went to Doc Tuesday and she was very concerned and wanted to do a MRI asap.....(I'm closterphobic) I asked that we do blood work to rule out other stuff 1st. Blood work was perfect but B12 was low on the normal side.....decided to try shots. Went in for shot wed and talked to doc #2 (other was off) asked what he thot, he said it couldn't be MS because my vision is fine and my b12 isn't that low. My sis is a MRI tech and said a woman was dx last week and she woke up and couln't talk......every patient she's seen had headaches and vision problems......Now I feel like a idiot
Problem for last 2 days is I feel like I got hit by a train......I ache from head to toe and my limbs feel like concrete.....I really don't feel right......I'm concerned....any advice?
Is there always vision problems? Am I a hypochondriac????
