Hi everyone. I've not posted before so please bare with me.
I have had strange symptoms for a few years now and My GP has failed to find anything wrong. My symptoms are as follows.
After exertion ie walking or digging in the garden, an hour or so later I get a feeling of weakness in the limb I have been useing, like I have been carrying something for a long time and then put it down. This is followed by extreem pain in the limb, similar to that felt as a kid when my mum said I had growing pains, but much more painful.I also get this pain in my legs if I have done a lot of walking. The only way to releive it is to put a hot water bottle on it until the burning of the bottle overtakes the pain of the muscle.
Another symptom is pins and needles in my left hand that wakes me up. It is only in my ring and little finger and starts as numbness, it is not due to laying awkwardly as I an usually laying on my back when it starts. I can also fell a strange sensation of tingling in my thumb on the same hand if I run an object down my arm just above the thumb.
In the past, about 5 months ago I would wake in the night with severe pain in my elbow joints. It was made worse if I moved them but was very painful if I kept them still a no win situation. This has been something that comes back at times.
I also have problems when urinating. I think I have finnised and wipe myself then stand up and urine runs down my leg. I can also be sitting and feel a leaking sensation but I don't need to go.
Please be honest, if it is not the symptoms of MS the please say so as I really need to find out what this really is.
Thank you for reading.
