Hi, I posted for the first time this morning my strange symptoms and the mri that showed I had 4-5 lesions in the subcortical white matter( I have been having dizziness & limb tingling & burning) that I have been having and tonight I have had something totally new pop up & feel totally crazy even saying anything about it but I need to know if anyone else has felt this & knows what to do about it. I was at the dinner table with my family & all of the sudden it felt like my limbs weighed 100 pounds & I felt like my body was in a haze. It really scared me and went on for about 30 minutes. Everytime I tried to join the conversation it felt like I couldnt even talk right. What the heck could be going on? It will be agony waiting until the 29th to see the neurologist!:eek:

  • It's probably not MS. I have had exactly the same thing and I've had 2 MRIs that both ruled out MS. In fact, my first visit to the Neurologist I was sent to the ER becuase I had that little muscle control. 6 months later they still ahve no answers for me. it still comes out of nowhere and disappears just as swiftly. sorry I can't tell you why it happens but you are definitely not alone.

  • I am looking online to find out more about this. I had an episode that lasted a few days, and I almost TRIPPED because my limbs felt so solid and heavy it was hard to walk.I dont know what to compare this to. Within the duration of this, I had one day when my lips felt sorta numb. That was weird. Im not entirely sure how to present this to my doc without sounding cracked..
