After dealing with some troubling symptoms I have started the testing for MS. I have already had blood tests and ct scans and will now be seeing a neurologist in a month.
I'm a 27 years old female and have convinced myself I have PPMS. When I was 22 years old I woke up with less sensation in my leg, although it was not numb. This has not gone away. 6 years later I have been getting worse gradually over the course of a few months. I will wake up with numb hands, I have tingling in my legs constantly, fatigue, tingling on my face, balance problems, and my left arm is weak and hurts. I have noticed I have been feeling wobbly easily in the mornings, but now I feel unbalanced all the time. Its not bad enough for people to notice but I just feel off.
I have had such a hard time coping with this possible diagnosis. Especially if it's ppms. Like I said I am only 27 and have 5 kids. I have become extremely depressed and anxious. I have lost 12 pounds in a month and have missed days from work from simply not wanting to get up. I have threatened suicide to my family and was almost committed into a mental hospital. I have been prescribed celexa for the depression and anxiety. I am starting therapy soon. My family tries to reassure me the best they can and tell me positive MS stories, but nothing helps. I am terrified I have PPMS and I truly feel like life is over. This is affecting my life in every way. The symptoms, depression, and anxiety is too much for me. I have had to call a crisis line many times In the past few weeks.
I'm just needing to hear some reassurance, A positive story, or somthing to help me through this hard time of waiting!
