Bowel Incontinence?

I have had a rather bad week. It started with vision problems in my left eye where it is noticably more fuzzy than my right eye. I have also had periods where my legs feel tingly (like as I speak) and problems walking, feeling "wobbly". I also noticed that when I walk my left foot seems to turn outwards making my look a little clumsy.

In addition to all this, I had an episode last ...

a late observation

I wrote on robbie's post, that my husband is still on abx, but as we have not done the flagyl pulses that much, I haven't had much to say.

Normal? (Maybe cheeks just aren't all that temp-sensitive?)
Pre-menopause? (I'm new to this, hot flashes just started ...
