I had a lot of 'symptoms' previously, including a ton of sensory issues.
Following the 6 day IV steroids and month tapering off, most of the symptoms are gone. The remaining symptoms that cause me concern now: I get what feels like a 'hot' feeling in my head, comes and goes, but feels like a heat wave in my skull, at the back to the top of the head. I also get pain in the right side of my mouth. Along the top row of gums on the right, and in my cheek. Sometimes it affects my tongue on this side as well.
Anyone felt anything remotely familiar?
The gums issue I thought may be gum disease (I brush and floss regularly), but I don't have bleeding gums or any visible signs of problems with my gums/on my cheek. The sharp shooting pain I occasionally get in my cheek leads me to believe that it's neuropathic.
Brushing my teeth/drinking water will calm the mouth sensation for a bit, and then it returns. Oddly enough, sublingual B12 tablets seem to 'coat' my mouth, and in turn, seem to have a positive effect on the mouth pain. Am I imagining things?... or could it possibly be B12 deficiency? (I was tested for B12 deficiency as part of my MS diagnosis in Feb/March of this year, but no b12 deficiency was noted, however I am aware that B12 deficiency is commonly misdiagnosed).
