What was your first symptom?

Postby Mercfh » Mon Oct 10, 2011 8:33 am

I've always been curious about this, but what was everyone first symptom before they were diagnosed. Or the first symptom that caught everyones attention to seek out medical advice? Numbness? Fatigue? etc...

More like pins and needles although not as intense. I wouldn't describe it as numbness and if anything I tend to suffer from hot feet.

At the time I thought it was due to my job which involved a lot of driving

mssocietyfan: How long would these pins/needles usually last? (1-2 minutes? or hours and such?)

A pins and needles like sensation in my fingers and toes. Could also be induced by looking down towards my feet.
Plus a deadness in the fingers.

Unable to see....Couldn't focus eyes....everything was a blur. Not sure if it would be called Double Vision or not.

Can you describe your dizziness? Was it long lasting or just small spurts?
