Sorry in advance for the long post.
My symptoms started on 14/02/16 - I woke with a really bad headache (this was unusual as I never get headaches), my arms also felt very weak and jittery. I carried on for a couple of days but the symptoms persisted. About a week passed before I went to my GP. I was referred for an urgent CT and MRI scan and cut a very long story short, was diagnosed with Hemiplegic Migraines.
My symptoms are still ongoing and changing. When I speak to my GP, i'm told "it's fine, it's just your migraines"
I now have:
Pins & Needles (severe)
Twitches (severe when @ rest)
I am also struggling to do basic jobs i.e, write. My legs are very weak and a couple of times, have completely gone from under me.
I am hoping all of these symptoms are migraine related but I can't help thinking there is more to it. On googling symptoms, I am greeted with MS and MND. This is really worrying me and obviously, anxiety will exacerbate my symptoms.
I am really sorry if I am coming across as a hypocondriac but I am really worried and just looking for a bit of advice.
