Hi I am terrified, as in I have convinced myself I have something terrible wrong with me and can't see my future....
A week ago, I stepped out of my chair and couldn't walk. There was no pain involved but my legs would not support me. I have never been so scared in my life. I crawled to get help, who then helped me to my bed. I was overcome with fatigue and fell asleep (very unlike me, normally full of energy, I run every day and have always kept fit and healthy) I stayed in my bed, this happened at 4.30 on a wednesday. The next day on the Thursday I could walk around again but then by 11.30 it returned and had to have food etc delivered to my bedside. I was admitted to hosptital on the Friday, still unable to walk, every so often I would be able to take a few steps again, but then my legs would go again at one point I found it very difficult to speak and get my words out, this passed within a minute. I must stress I have experienced NO PAIN, just the practical inability to walk. PLEASE PLEASE HELP. I am desperate, I want to live my life again. I am a go getter and have dreamed all my life of doing good things in the world. I want this to go away. It is a week since this happened but it also happened earlier on in the year in December but my family told me it was because I had had low blood sugar, when I went to sleep after it happened (I was also overcome with fatigue) I felt much better when I woke up so I dismissed it.
If anyone has any idea what is wrong with me, please tell me, I am terrified that I have ms. I am only 18 and at a crucial point in my life I need some answers.
I hope you find a really good neurologist. He/she will be able to run tests and tell you for sure what is what. I have ms. Myeft leg went numb for about a week and I get terrible migraines. I get really tired,but overall I am blessed to just have these minor disturbances.
I would definitely advise you to see a physician. Your symptoms could be attributed to a variety of reasons. I'm not a doctor, but I dont necessarily think that your symptoms are that of initial MS symptoms, so I wouldnt worry too much until you actually get checked out
Hi there, I saw a physician and he did a neurological examination but said he found nothing, I have been for an mri scan though which is being looked over by a neurologist, still scared though.
Thanks for yor help
