My symptoms started 2 yrs ago with
buzzing in my ears w/ numbness in my right ear only
dizziness(feels like I'm walking on a moving boat)
numbness or pins & needles in my hands and feet
hot plate feet(feels like standing on a hot plate
)sometimes the heat will travel up my leg.
Tired all the time
tremors mainly in hands
problems with my walking where I was acually kinda dragging or shuffling my feet(they would not listen to me!
Well they could never really find out what was wrong with me.
Fast forward to now,2 yrs later and I started to get some of the symptoms back yesterday,mainly the buzzing in my ears,numbing in the right,dizziness,numbness & P&N in my hands and feet and the burning in my feet is back.Also tremors that I can feel on the inside but you can only see in my hands
also tired and muscles tightening up again.
I went to the dr today and she told me it looked like I had possible MS
and she put me on Prednisone and I have to go back in 2 weeks for a recheck and in 2 months for another MRI(I had one done last year,it was clean)Is there such thing as possible MS?I thought ever you have it or you don't.What happens if my next scan comes back clean?Does that mean no MS or does it mean it just hasn't shown up yet?
She told me that there are no meds for MS and that you can only treat the symptoms...is that true?
Also the prednisone...I have to take 10 mgs twice a day for a month.Isn't that kinda long to be taking that?I thought you could only be on that for 7 to 10 days?
Thank you for any help!
