I had an episode of severe numbness and tingling in my feet and lost sensation in my buttocks, nearly 20 years ago they found a lesion on my spine and this was put down to a clinically isolated syndrome, with an 80% chance of developing MS. I recovered from this then about 10 years later I had some other numbness symptoms and after an MRI was told I had transverse myelitis. I had further investigations four years later none of which has been conclusive.
Over the recent years I have had various symptoms including an electric shock type pain when I move my neck this comes and goes at various times. I also occasionally get numbness in my feet and occasionally, get restless legs and struggle with my balance almost like a feeling of drunkenness. I also wake up frequently in the night needing a wee, this symptom is always there and has gradually got worse.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis of my right hip and needed a hip replacement. Since then I have been doing more walking and seemed to be okay but in the last few months I have noticed my left foot dragging when I walk and I have to consciously think about lifting my foot and the other day I found myself walking towards the left rather than in a straight line. I am also having episodes of extreme fatigue when all I can do is lie on my bed and rest and the electric shock feeling in my neck is happening more frequently.
I am now really worried and not sure what I should do next, I’m feeling anxious for the future and not sure what I should do next?
