I don't have an MS diagnosis as of yet. I have UC, unrelated to my post here today. I'd love to hear thoughts about possible options/diagnoses and tests I should consider to guide my neurologist, who has been baffled by my symptoms and does not have any answers for me. I tried two neurologists already and am still undergoing testing.
2.5 Months ago, I developed facial numbness that then turned into widespread full body numbness on both sides. It's 24/7 with no change at all, aside from spreading more overtime. No other symptoms. The neurologist had no idea what this could be and is still running a few tests. Here are the tests i've done so far.
MRI brain (normal)
CBC, ANA, ESR, Complete metabolic panel, Lyme blood test, B12, (all normal)
MRI, spine (scheduled)
Sweat test for small fiber neuropathy (have to wait till jan due to long waits)
Any ideas of what I should ask for/what other issues in addition to MS to consider?
Also, can MS present with widespread, bilateral numbness that is 24/7 for months?
