Feel I'll lightheaded, fast pulse, nauseas, over heated after bath causing very weak muscles and very tired washed out feeling but as cool down feel better sometimes still tired but don't feel so heavy.
Unable to walk in straight line vere off to right sometimes crash into things
Lightheaded sometimes wen just sitting aswell as standing, walking
Pins and needles in right arm and hand and left hand fingers for 3 months now but is worse when I bend forward I get a cold rush of pins and needles down my right arm, this when first started was accompanied by weeks of tightness in top of arm which has now gone but pins and needles still there but not as bad
Thought id got bladder infection other week but hadn't
Going toilet more in the night
Pins an needles slight numbness in feet legs
Sometimes short of breath on exertion going upstairs etc
Few more syptoms but not ms related like hives, early menopause I alsi have crohns disease too.
I've had lots of bloods done for vit deficientcys, lymes and lupus and rheumatoid factor but all came back satisfactory so am now waiting for MRI appointment for spinal and brain which shud be in about
Can anyone plz give their opinions on above syptoms and especially the pins abd needles rush off cold down arm when bending forward. Thanks in advance
I have a cousin who lives in Florida with ms but she's alot older than me and her husband is on my fb friends list, I so want to message her and ask her opinion but darnt as I may look like im jumping the gun so to speak and don't want to worry anyone plus my mum thinks im just overworked and she says a few days rest abd I'll be ok. When I told her my bloods were ok her reaction felt like if bloods ok your ok so to speak, I don't find my family much support they ok texting me but don't want to chat on phone to help. And im sure my mum wud think I was being silly if I contacted my cousin to ask her about
wether I cud have ms or not.
Sorry for long post thanks
