Hi guys I'm really!!!!! worried!
Well I had this weakness feeling (which turned out to be spastic feeling) in my left leg below knee as well as that I had a bit of needle and pins sensation in ma legs and a little now and then pains in my extremities 2 years ago. Now I went to the neurologist for my weakness feeling as well as fatiqgue (even after a lot of sleep). He checked my leg reflexes as well as plantar reflexes and one or two reflexes of my hand and checked my walking on my heels and my toes and said to me that he found nothing wrong and that I'm anxious. some months ago I also developed a vibration sense in my left foot which was there for some days and then went away.
I also have this feeling which I'm really afraid it's lhermitt's sign. Sometime when I flex my head I feel a very slight vibration or tingling in the arch of my foot. I'm really worried that these are the early signs of MS
He was right I was anxious about these being the early signs of MS
I still am. cause I feel tired even after sleeping. The doctor has a fellowship from UCLA but I still feel worried if I got MS and if he didn't search enough on my medical examination. then I saw this site: http://www.msconnection.org/Blog/April-
... ust-Clumsy and my anxiety got worst! I have no trouble in running however I feel the fatigue though. I feel a bit clumsy in my right hand too which I don't know if it is a right feeling or know cause I have no trouble in typing fast.
Should I be assured by the normal reflexes or should I go visit another neurologist?
Is my l'hermitt's sign true? does it mean I'm gonna get MS in future?
2 years ago I had a MRI from my brain (BUT NOT SPINE!) due to my fear about MS and it went out normal. I also sometimes feel a little pain in my eye (which is really little and I have no vision problems) which I fear may be the start of optic neuritis but my pupillary reflex is normal. (I'm a 21 years old male)
I'm feeling really anxious now that doctor put me on Amitryptiline.
Could this be the start of MS?
