For the past eight years my hands/wrists and feet/lower legs have been tingling/numb off and on. Lately they have been worse, with a great deal of weakness in my lower arms and hands. (I drop stuff!). I have off and on fatigue with no cause, I have become very forgetful, no concentration, use the wrong words, etc. Lately my chin and lower lip have been numb upon waking in the morning. Both of my arms are tight and my hands are in clenched fists and bent sharply in at the wrists upon waking. My balance is poor, and my feet feel heavy and leaden. Sometimes I stumble or trip when I walk. Sometimes I tend to veer to the left. My husband teases me and says I look drunk. (I'm certainly not!) I've had tons of bood work done, and EMG, etc. and two sets of brain/neck MRIs done and they all show normal. I know my doctor believes me (I have livido reticularis in my lower legs--a symptom of autoimmune disease that has been verified by my doctor and another specialist), and thinks MS is probably the most likely scenario, but no MRI lesions, no diagnosis. Do you know if many people have MS without lesions showing? This is driving me crazy...what if it's something else that could be treated if I start now?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
