Hello! I have had Symptoms of MS for the past year. It started suddenly with extreme weakness/numbness of right leg. I was very off balance and could barely walk for a few weeks. I finally sought medical advice thinking I had injured my knee or had compressed a nerve. This led me down a long road until I eventually landed in neurology 6 months after my symptoms started. The initial symptoms improved so I only have a slight limp now, however new ones have come up. Numb patches on head, pain above ear, weak right hand/arm, muscle twitching, dizzy. My right leg is still the biggest issue. Lots of tests ran. MRI several months ago was normal other than some disc protrusions in thoracic and cervical spine. Negative blood labs for Lyme, lupus etc. Neuro is still leaning towards MS despite MRI. I'm currently awaiting results from LP to help confirm diagnosis. (Spinal headaches are not fun!!!) Does anyone have a similar experience?
I had the spinal headaches and it was not fun, ended up getting a blood patch done to stop leak. After several test that were normal I was diagnosed with Tolosa Hunt syndrome. Your case doesnt seem to fit my symptoms. My symtpoms include double vision, pain around left side kf eye and numbness. I hope you figure it out, it is just a relief to know. I will be praying.
I have had the opposite of what you are going through a positive MRI and a negative LP. I wish I could be more helpful. As I just had my LP last Friday and had 4 vials drawn. They have also checked me for meningitis, Gilliam Beret's, lupus and more ... I hope you get answers soon. I have found going gluten free and adding a root called asawanga excuse any spelling errors have helped me more than anything so far.
