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

Anxiety

Fatigue

Bladder issues- the less said about this the better- I haven’t really admitted this to myself

Spasms

Loss of memory

Forgetting how to swallow

Losing balance

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.

Jittery eye

Insomnia

Always cold

Face burning

Occasional Mouth Ulcer

With a list like this, if it is not MS- what is it?

Could it be nothing?

  1. It is a good idea to make a list for your appointment. It is amazing how easy it is to forget things that you want to tell or ask the doctor. I know how nerve wrecking this is, but I promise you it will be okay. You are doing the smart thing by making a list I wish I had done that so many times. If there is anything I can do for you between now and then and even after your appointment, I am here for you!!!!! Take care and enjoy the holiday as much as possible!!!!!
