Hi there, (I'm 25/F)
I'm really hoping someone can help.
Last week, on Weds, I went for a short walk at work on my lunch break in some low heeled ankle boots (same that I've been wearing for a year) and all of a sudden I got a burning sensation in the balls of my feet and had to go back to my desk & take them off for the day cos it was so intense!
I rested up and the next day I had a tingling sensation going up my legs, again just took it easy as I wasn't at work that day but it didn't go away. Friday I woke up and I noticed my genitalia and abdomen had started to go quite numb. I could still feel but was certainly desensitised. Then on Saturday it had spread to my breasts and my hands. So pretty much everywhere apart from my arms and my head is suffering from tingly numbness and it's sending me into a panic.
Could it be nerve damage? I went to the out of hours service at the hospital on Saturday night and the doctor just googled and said it could be Guillain-barre but I don't have any weakness/pain/anything else and I've not been ill at all! So I couldn't help but think that was a complete shot in the dark and she had no idea.
Please help me? I'm going to my GP first thing tomorrow to sit and wait for an appointment. Thank you!
