Hi, this is my 1st time posting here, I normally post in the Lupus forum. I have noticed I have alot more of the symptoms of MS.
Here are some examples; a couple times as I was driving I completely blanked out and could not remember where I was going, this last a few seconds. The 1st time was a couple of yrs ago, I was on the freeway w/my 2 little girls, all of a sudden I didn't know where to go, I was going to get off on the next exit, but it looked too deserty, (i live in the desert area). I got off on the next exit, by that time I remembered where I was. This scared me so much. I told my PD and she had me do this memory test, she then stated I do have some kind of memory problem. My DR never did anything more.
In July 06', my right arm slowly started having heavyness feeling w/pain, week later I could not move it. If I tried the pain was so bad. This last for 2 weeks. I didn't go to DR then, at that time I didn't have any insurance.
My arms I can see the muscles twitching, left arm somedays feels like I have a blood pressure moniter on it, its gets very painful. I would say like a level 7-8. Last night I woke up suddenly my whole right leg was shaking, this lasted for 15 secs or so, I fell back asleep. When I'm sitting down longer then 20mins, my legs become numb, and they hurt too. When I worked, I couldn't remember how to do the tasks for my job, which I had done for last 4 yrs, I would ask my co-wrkr how complete, I couldn't comprehend what a person was telling me, when I would talk them, I felt so dumb. My speech was slurred at times.
Sorry to ramble, I go see my rheumy this month, I now have ins. I also made an appt w/neuro just in case my rheumy wants to me to see one. I would like to hear your opinions please.
