I had the usual tests for ms and thankfully all clear. 11 years on still on meds for trigeminal neuralgia and restless arms and legs. TIn february started to get numbness in head, left side oc face, chin, arm and leg. Leg numbness/funny sensation is way more prominent in shower. Also have teeth and gum pain (2 trips to dentist and all looks fine) but pain still comung and going. Last friday developed left hand tremor when holding fork. Today pins and needles in both feet and left hand. Also gave had about 4 episodes of tightening around my ribs. Gp did neuro logical exam and found hyperrelexia in upper and lower limbs with clonus. Also get bouts of fatigue. Went to er dept last week on afvuce from my gp and they did a brain scan which wasclear. Now waiting to see a neurologist. Does this soynd like MS? Hoping to get spine mri and lp.done. Thsnks for reading x
