Since the summer I've had numbness and gradually worsening tingling in my right side. It affects my face, arm, hand and leg. My right hand is gradually getting weaker. I'm female and 48 yrs old.

I've got an MRI scan booked for 3 weeks time and an appointment with a neurologist a month later.

I have no idea what is going on! I've no other symptoms. I'm starting to get worried in case it's something serious.
