Ugh. Ten days seems like a very long wait. I'm sorry! I had numbness in the tops of my feet/big toes. I never did anything about
it. I am a teacher and I'm on my feet a lot. I assumed the numbness was just from cheap shoes. Then I had a horrific bout of severe vertigo. It progressed rapidly over the course of 3 weeks. I ended up hospitalized for 4 days. That got me an MRI and it went from there. I was diagnosed in 5 weeks. It was only during a symptom checklist during this time that the numbness was discussed.
Numbness is a very common symptom as well as a very common first symptom of MS. I hope I'm not scaring you. Sometimes being ready for what may happen can help. Your other symptoms also seem MS-ish. The problem is that MS symptoms are hardly unique. Many diseases share them.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006
I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.
