I am not sure how much to write about myself as this is my first time entering a forum like this. I started down the path to diagnosis after having my left leg go numb and tingley and never really resolve 100% for the last year. In hind sight I think I have had at least two other exacerbations, resulting in tremors in my hands for a couple months, and some bowel issues for about 6 weeks. I was diagnosed with MS in late April after a horrific experience with spinal headaches from my lumbar puncture. I had 4 bands show, and my MRI’s showed a lesion in my brain and some “spots” in my spinal column. My Nuero told me I caught it very early as if this was some kind of marvelous achievement I made. I was less than flattered with the outcome. I have adjusted the last 6 weeks or so rather well I am told, and been on Copaxone for a little over a month. I don’t know if I am just in denial and going through the motions or if it has actual sunk in yet that I really have MS. Regardless, I thought I would start to get to know everyone on the site and have some people in my life I can rely on who understand what all this really means and the things I am experiencing.
One thing that is troubling me is a new twitch in my left eyelid. It started a few days after the LP and it has not resolved. At first, it was just an irritant I could feel the quiver but couldn’t see anything going on. Now, I can see my eyelid tremble and shake and I can feel the tremble when I place my finger gently on my eye lid. I have a call in to the Nuero on it, but she has yet to return my call.
Any advice on MS or my crazy eye is appreciated.
