I have what I THINK and have always assumed was carpal tunnel in my hand, but it has gotten worse in the last month where my husband insisted on a doc visit which has resulted in a neurology referral for nerve testing.
It would go in waves of weeks it was fine, then weeks it was bad and each time it would get worse. Then more like good days and bad days. And now it has almost a constant tingle like feeling in all the finger tips. Lightening shooting like pains at night a lot of the time. Yesterday I started having random lightening running through the side of my hand into my pinky? I didn't think CT affected your pinky, but who knows.
I also have what I call 'mom brain', very forgetful and slow to think of words. Again - just call it mom brain after 4 kids lol.
Clumsy and get randomly dizzy.
Oh and recently diagnosed with overactive bladder, again.
There's other little things, but those are the major flags that I noticed are the same as the MS symptoms - so I'm hoping to bring it up to my neurologist without sounding paranoid.
If interested - I was reading a book last week and a lead character had MS. I'd heard of it, but didn't really know what it was so I looked it up.. and well here we are lol.
There are many, many diseases that mimic the symptoms of MS, and most diagnosed people do not get a MS diagnosis. Simple nutritional efficiencies and stress can often be the cause of many of the issues you describe.
But obviously something is going on with your health and you need to find out what it is and correct it.
Tell the doctor everything you mentioned in your posting (you described everything well) and let him/her figure it out for you. Please update us on the results of the appointment. Basic blood work if you have not already done so is probably a good idea at this time.
take control of your own health.
pursue optimal self care, with or without a diagnosis.
