This is my first post as I just joined the Forum Today.
I started losing feeling in my feet (replaced by numbness) exactly 1 year ago. Since then the Numbness has adveanced up my ankles, up my legs and up to my waist. I now have a feeling of a band around my waist all the time, my legs are numb but not totally w/o feeling and my feet feel like my toes are twisting under when I walk. I went in for laser treatment on my feet, to no avail. Then I went in and had blood tests for diabetes, Lyme disease, and some other panels which were negative. I also passed a Electronic Nerve Stimulation test, twice.
I had MRIs of my Brain, Spine, and Thorasic, which did show a demylinization of my spinal cord in the T12 area, as well as some imflamation, if that makes any sense.
I had a Lumbar puncture about 3 months ago, which came out normal, although I did experience Terrible Headaches about three days later and had to go to ER for a Blood Patch.
Neurologist referred me to an MS Specialist, and that specialist says Its probably not MS. He had me get a VIT D test which was critically low at 18...I think. I am now taking Vit D to get that back up.
Anyways, now I am getting headaches again and ear ringing, particularly at night to the point that I cant sleep, thius the long winded post at 100AM.
MS Specialist says it's probably not MS, I wonder if you disagree?
Thanks for letting me explain, and Id be glad to post my MRIs if it would help.
Happy New Year.
