Nov 2014: woke up with belly numbness from belly button to just at the public hair line. By nightfall of the same day belly from just under breasts to mid thighs on front side only were numb, including genitalia, not anus.
Mid December 2014: suddenly woke up to very heavy feeling legs. Then a week later I lost most feeling and couldn't control my knees causing me to fall when I stepped off a curb. My left knee didn't even try to stop me. Then around the first of January I was getting up, walking, driving every day, going window shopping. Loving life.
Late January 2015: I was suddenly struck with severe vertigo and a hyper and distorted sense of smell which prevented me from eating anything. Vomited a lot. That left me bedridden for 3 full weeks. I then was still bedridden due to muscle wasting.
Today: still bedridden but now have a rented wheelchair. Was dealing with severe muscle cramping in legs and feet but those have resolved. Have significant peripheral neuropathy in fingers and toes. Can barely use my hands, only pinky fingers for things like typing on my tablet, as I am right now.
I get tremors a lot. Kinda like I'm sitting in the snow without cold weather clothes on. It seems strong emotions bring it on. Yesterday I was calling around to get an answer about why I hadn't received my referral for my brain MRI yet. I was ticked to find out that almost 2 weeks after my doctor referred me the referral had not yet been touched and it needs to be sent to my insurance. That made me very angry.
Anyway. I wake up from sleep feeling feverish, hot kinda with a very reddish face. But after a short time of being out of bed it goes away and I get coldish.
I currently take 600mg of gabapentin 4 times a day, 2 pills extra strength Tylenol up to 4 times a day and 4mg tizanidine at night.
Does this sound like MS?
