Help! I have been told by one physician that I may have MS!! Here are my symptoms...
Started at age 24 - would get area on right shin - appx 3" diameter - that would burn to touch, much like a rug burn, but by the end of the day would have moved up to my thigh. The original site would be fine.
These would happen very infrequently and primarily right sided.
Now, I'm 46 and these are happening more frequently - appx every 3 months. But now, they will start in other areas... left rib, left hip. These are more severe now and it feels like it goes into the bone. I feel slightly lethargic and like I have slight case of the flu - achy all over. These "attacks" last appx 3 days, but the last one that started in my left hip and moved to my pelvic bone lasted about 1 week! I've seen a physician, who thinks I'm just crazy, I'm sure! I work as an LPN at a hospital and one of the physicians mentioned MS. I've researched it some, but don't see these specific symptoms... Am I just going crazy, or can any of you relate?
Appreciating any help here!
