My feet would randomly get tingly and I also noticed the index finger on both hands started to get numb each day for periods of time. Also, my calf muscles and hamstrings started having moments of cramping/tightness. I decided to ask Dr.Google what he thought and he led me to MS. I never had even thought about it but now it seems to make sense. I have researched and researched and researched to the point that I do not know anymore if I am reading myself into symptoms. For the last couple of days, my vision has seemed to be somewhat blurry in the distance.
I am a regular golfer and in my younger days, made the awful mistake of punching the steering wheel of the golf cart with my right hand. I started thinking that it could be nerve issues related to that but that wouldnt make sense for my left hand or my feet. I have not been diagnosed as diabetic but I do LOVE sweets/carbs and there is a history of diabetes in my family. As far as I know, there is not a history of MS.
This is honestly the most scared I have ever been in my life. I am someone that LOVES regular activity and am hopefully about to become a father. I do not want to lose everything right when I am starting. I am sorry to leave this message as I am sure this is something that is added to this site multiple times a day. I just needed to talk/vent/get opinions. Thanks!
