With my appointment for the neurologists closing in on me- (I’m neurotic about this neurologist appointment!!) I have decided to make a list so that I don’t forget anything. I have gotten used to making lists. I make them for everything- they seem to help organize my mind and stop me from forgetting- unless I forget the list which I often do. Shopping lists, things I have to do today lists- Christmas lists- lots of lists, I could happily swim in a sea of lists ( I can’t swim so I would drown) But this list is a little daunting- I didn’t think it would be so long. I thought I had 1 or 2 symptoms turns out I have a good few more than that- that I remember…
So- here goes:
Pins and needles in various locations
Pain in various locations
Weakness and pain in my left arm/hand
Feel like I’m moving but I’m not moving- if I’m driving and the car stops I feel like the car is still moving- I don’t think it is dizziness but it is unnerving
Mixing my letters and numbers up in what I think is a dyslexic kind of way
Pain in my leg up around my hip joints
CRAZY dreams- crazy vivid dreams
Bladder issues- the less said about this the better- I haven’t really admitted this to myself
Loss of memory
Forgetting how to swallow
Feet are always moving- my husband has many many videos of me sitting unaware that my feet are busy dancing away to their own tune.
Occasional Mouth Ulcer
With a list like this, if it is not MS- what is it?
Could it be nothing?
