Can this be MS? how does a MS Flare up feel like?
can anyone explain to me what a MS flare up feels like, i wa sin the ER a few weeks ago and teh doctor insisted on doing a spinal tap, i refused since he didnt explain to me why he wanted to do it, anyway when i came home a friend told me that he might have been looking for MS, anyway i am so scared that i didnt get an MRI, but i realy would liek to know what it feels like, these are my symptoms below, by the way I have hypothyroid/hashimotos and they seem to hae alot of the same symptoms as MS
1-numbness/tingling when i try to sleep, the side i sleep on gets numb and i have to switch sides
2-numbness/tingling on arms/face/top of head
3-alot of dizziness-lightheadedness
4- 2x in 6 months i woke up not being able to see from one eye for about 10 seconds
5-really bad acid reflux
by the way about 5 months ago I had a spine MRi done to check for a pinched nerve and that was normal, and 2 weeks ago the doctor in the ER did a catscan which was also normal, i am so scared of having MS since i already am dealing with so much with my thyroid condition that is out of control and a few years back i had myxedema coma awhich i almost lost my life, and now with teh acid reflux being so bad that it burned y throat and i couldnt eat for 3 months and just started eating last week again, but zi am worried and have that MS in the back of my head, any input, please let me know what a flare up feels like that way i can at least know more about MS Thanks a bunch
