    Question Cold Arms - Warm Hands

    Wow, what a strange night. It started about 8:00 last night. It started with this heavy feeling in my chest, like I couldn't take a deep breath. Then my arms began to feel cold and my hands had this warm vibrating feeling. Then my "MS" leg began to jump. This lasted til about 1:00 in the morning. I wanted to pull my hair out of my head. My sweet darling of a husband stayed up with me until I was finally able to go to sleep. When I woke this morning at 6:30 to get my grandson off to school, my "MS" leg was very weak and my good leg felt like it was a little weak. My balance was way off. Now it's right past noon and I fell great. This disease seems to make up it's own rules every day.

    This is kind of an after thought. I'll be 47 in April. Have any of you been diagnosed in their mid to late 40's.
    Thanks to all of those out there that HEAR what we are trying to say. I appreciate the responses and input.

    Purfik, I was diagnosed last year, at 48. There are several people on the board who were dx'd "late"!

    Hi purfik,

    Wow! What a weird night you had. Glad it didn't hang on too long.

    I'm not diagnosed yet - symptoms started 3-1/2 years ago when I turned 50 (my warranty ran out, according to one doctor ) We'll see - I get the results of my LP Saturday. Oh, and the other thing, my neuro told me he has a patient older than I am who was just diagnosed. There are people who don't fit into the bell curve of age, he said.

    In fact, I ignored a lot of my symptoms at first because I thought, I'm too old for MS!

    Live and learn.

    take care,

    kelpie

    Being a little "older" does complicate things. Until the bizarre L'Hermitte's I thought my problems and pains were age-related so didn't talk about them (didn't want to be a whiner). On top of that I started having hot flashes in earnest 2 years ago. The whole menopause thing does crazy stuff, too...
