New & worsening Symptoms - Advice?
I'm in limbo land & have my first neuro appt on 12/18. Since my last visit with my PCP a few weeks ago, I've new symptoms & symptoms that got worse after that appt. I know that my 12/18 appt is not too far away, but I'm just not sure what to do with these new symptoms. When I saw my PCP last, my numbness & tingling were in my left leg & right hand. Now, my right leg is numb, tingling and cold - and has nearly given out on me 2-3 times in the last couple of days. I'm experiencing allodynia in both of my hands, which are sensitive to both touch/pressure & heat, and I've had a squeezing pain in my left side that I think could be the infamous MS hug. I've also had bouts of dizziness and lighteheadedness, during which my vision sometimes blurs a little. I don't know if I should just keep journaling my symptoms between now & 12/18, call my PCP or call my new neuro. I don't know if the neuro would get me in sooner (or if it's even necessary) or if it would do any good to see/call my PCP. Truth be told, he seemed a little overwhelmed by all of this & I doubt an appt with him would be helpful. What do all of you think? Call or tough it out for the next 3 weeks?
