Ok so... Hi all, I'm Autumn. I was Diagnosed with Optic Neuritis back in March. The eye doctor suggested I get an MRI of the brain. I think: "This is silly. I feel fine." I go get the MRI anyway, and it's clear. No lesions. Then... The storm hits. Numbness, tingling, burning, pins and needles in hands and feet, mostly left side. Urgency in urination. Literally would get up from toilet and feel like I had to pee but there was nothing. Severe hand tremors, worse on left side, weak and heavy legs, they felt like they were full of led sand. Doctors rule out every other possibility.
Diabetes, fibromyalgia, any form of cancer, any infection, vitamin levels checked, thyroid checked, hormones checked... You name it. They checked it. Then... I started feeling better. I just brushed it off, except... Now my legs are really painful and tight all along the backs of them. Hamstrings, calves and Achilles tendon. Hurts to walk, and my feet are pointing down a lot. Ruled out muscular dystrophy. Did an MRI of the spine to check for lesions... Also clear.
My hands feel like they are on fire again after a recent sinus infection, this is my third sinus infection in the span of all of this... Don't know if it's related, but my symptoms seem to get worse with infection.
My question is... Did I possibly get the MRI of the brain too soon? Should I push for another? Am I crazy?
