basics, im a healthy 22yr old female. no history of health problems, i dont drink or smoke, and i keep myself at a healthy weight with exersize.
about the 19th of december, i noticed numbness in my left torso just over the ribs. at that point, i ignored it thinking it would go away. over the new 2 days it started to spread, first down into my left foot, followed by my whole left leg and then up into my my left shoulderblade and back, i also have an itchy sensation in my left arm and my leg almost feel like it has heaviness to it. i called my primary doctor and they couldn't get me in immediately so they had me talk to a triage nurse (who til this day has not returned a call). because i couldn't get in to see my PCP i went to the ER on the 22nd. they had me do some sensory tests, did a needle poking test, and gave me a CAT (CT?) scan. they diagnosed me with Neuropraxia and sent me on my way. after that the numbness/tingling spread a little more into my right leg from the knee down, i also started to notice a "twinkling" out of my right peripheral vision, which only seems to be there when im in a bright lite area. the day after christmas i was finally able to see my primary doctor. she also did the needle poking test and blood work and gave me a referal for an MRI of my brain to rule out MS.
both the blood work and MRI came out normal. my doctor has refered me to go to a Neurologist but i cannot get an apointment before the 24th of this month. the waiting is absolutely unbearable and i cannot believe it is taking me so long to get a diagnosis. the symtoms have not changed and they are constant except that i dont notice the twinkling in my vision. because the doctors havent been able to tell me anything at this point i am still going about my daily habits and working while taking it as easy as possible but i worry if it could just be making my siduation worse. if anyone can tell me anything it would be a huge help and relief. thank you.
