Hello everyone. I have a complicated history, but just a quick synopsis, I have Diabetes type 2 and ulcerative colitis. I had surgery to have my colon removed and now have a jpouch. Since then off all steroids, and immunosuppressants, but having body symptoms. Have been having alot of numbness/tingling off and on in my feet, hands. Mentioned this to my pcp asking if it could be peripheral neuropathy from my diabetes. He said its possible. I have been complaining of feeling like my ulcerative colitis is flaring without the typical bowel symptoms, but the extreme fatigue and just feeling achy and sore, almost flu-ish. Lately been having weird intermittent feelings of brief syncope, almost like I'm sitting and the world shifts to the left and right real quick, but nothing else. Also I feel my eyesight has gotten worse pretty rapidly, needing reading glasses alot more now, and I have this annoying twitching in my right eye that occurs intermittently but quite frequently. Then 2 days ago, I freaked out!! I had extreme tingling in my right leg and arm at the same time. I work in a clinic and mentioned this to my team leader, she checked my blood pressure and wisked me off to our urgent care. Anyways, I ended up in the ER and they consulted the oncall neurologist. I had a head and neck MRI. This is what it shows, "Scattered white matter lesions. On the right, at least 8 most of them punctate. On the left there appear to be at least 13. There are really not three periventricular lesions, but there are numberous juxtacortical lesions.". They have recommneded i see a neurologist. Not sure what to think of this....ideas??
