Ok, so in mid-july of this year, I had a weird rash (it looked like a bunch of mosquito bites all over my arms and torso) I went to the ER and they said it was scabies (which happened to be wrong), so I took the predinisone (spell?) and a cream I was prescribed for a week. The following week while at a friends house I came down with the worst headache/ head pressure of my life, I could barely drive back home. I went to the ER the next morning because it was still there but not as bad. They treated me for dehydration but i decided to follow up with my GP a few days after. She thought I had a sinus infection due to the head pressure i described, so I took a round of amoxy which made the head pressure a little better but not completely, I got a CT scan which came back clear. The same week I started to feel this tingly/ prickly feeling on the left side of my torso and a weird cold, tingly feeling on my left leg and hand as well. so I got a referral to a neurologist. The neuro had me do a blood test for Lyme disease as well an MRI of my brain and thoracic area of my spine, I also had to do a few tests for my vision and hearing with all these wires attached to my brain as well a stimulus (shock) at the bottom of my feet which all came back great. The Lyme came back positive but only one of the "bands" were present so he said its most likely not lyme and told me I most likely have MS because my Brain and Spine had lesions/ abnormalities found on the MRI. I have not had blurry vision, no fatigue, no loss of balance/ clumsiness, no loss of sexual drive or any of the other common symptoms of MS besides the tingly feeling on the extremities that come and go. It has been 5 months and the prickly feeling on the left side of my torso is gone, I just feel a "tightness" around the rib area. I am a male and was born and raised in south america, I know it can affect anyone of any race but I read that most MS patients are caucasian/ born raised in north america/ europe and are also female. I re-tested for Lyme as well as other diseases and if they all come back negative I guess my only option would be to get a spinal tap to rule out MS.
From your experience what do you think is going on and do you think I have MS?
I am very thankful you took the time to read and respond to this. I really appreciate it. God Bless.
