Hi all, I'm hoping to get some answers and info from people who have gone through this.
There are 3 cases of ms on my mother's side of the family. So naturally when I started getting some weird symptoms a couple years ago, I was worried and did some research. But all the feelings I had were so vague that I never went to the doctor's with my concerns. Then I got pregnant with my 4th child and I felt MUCH better.
Then these last couple months the symptoms returned, but still vague. Achiness in the legs, feeling of spaciness, inner trembling. So I took a wait and see appraoch. Now last week I got pain in my face. Again, I was worried about ms, but stillthinking it was in my haed or unrelated, as the symptoms were atypical. Instead of the sharp, short bursts of pain that I read about in the articles, my cheeks are constantly achy, feels like someone is pinching me.
Not a month ago, I had a physical, and he checked my reflexes, they were all normal. Again, from the online research I did, I read about the Babinsky reflex, and decided to try it out on myself last night. I have no reflexes at all. I discovered my feet are numb and I can't feel anything. Yet I can walk no problem? I even tried to get the kids to tickle my feet this morning, and I felt nothing.
Of course this convinced me to call the doctor, finally. I have an appointment on Wednesday. In the meantime, I am petrified of these new sensations. And also still in denial. I don't have Babinski's reflex after all.
Have others felt atypical symptoms? It seems everything I read baout, mine case is different. What can I expact the doctor will do wednesday?
