I've been having ms-like symptoms for 10 years now. During that time I've gone through many periods of days or weeks where I'm so fatigued that just getting up and showering in the morning is enough to make me want to go back to bed. I've also become very accustomed to the tingling/vibrating sensations in my body, occasional numbness in my face (esp. chin) and feet, burning sensations in my arms and legs, and sudden severe stabbing pains in my arms and legs that literally take my breath away, but then are gone instantly. But then I'll go through months, or even up to a year once or twice where I feel wonderful. I have an MRI coming up in August.
But the thing that really made me nervous recently is that I woke up in the middle of the night, sleeping on my left side, and my entire right side from my toes to my face was 'asleep'. I got up, and had a hard time walking, it was as if I had to get the circulation going, and it took a few minutes. Until I fell asleep again my right cheek continuted to tingle. The whole episode really unnerved me. Is is possible to fall asleep on your entire side? Or does this sound like probable ms? Any ideas would be appreciated. Oh, and btw, my doctor and neurologist say my symptoms are absolutely not sounding like a tumor... (and if anyone things it sounds like that, please don't share it with me, as I don't think I can cope with extra stress right now!
) The only thing they're thinking it might be is MS.
Thanks for listening...
