I’m 28 years old and I had my first symptoms June 2016 after giving birth to my second child the August before.
I was having right sided upper facial numbness and left arm tingling, mainly in my last 3 digits and down my fore arm. I would get occasional leg tingling but it wouldn’t be consistent. During my first bout of facial numbness I worked in a call center and couldn’t add to simple numbers 3 and 11... it was a loss... I looked at my coworker and said I have no idea what that adds up to be and i don’t know what’s wrong with me, complete confusion. After that I felt foggy for weeks, off and on till dec. I had two mris of the brain, one even with contrast, both were normal. Lumbar puncture was negative and I had MANY blood tests done.
December I saw my Neuro again 2016 and he wanted to try me on gabapenton but I was reluctant without any proper diagnosis considering he was also sure my symptoms would warrant a abnormal brain MRI. No I haven’t had a cervical done.
A few years went on and I felt like I was symptom free, a lot in my life has changed, I got a divorce and now I feel a lot less stress in that aspect. For a while a chalked it up to be anxiety and went on my way.
A few weeks ago I noticed a small right upper cheek bone facial numbness or tingle you may say, it feels odd but i can still feel my face when it’s touched. I’ve began working out in the gym to better myself and that’s when I have also noticed an extreme difference in my right arm and a constant weak feeling, day in and out as I use my mouse at work, just uncomfortable. With those two minor symptoms I went about my days, now i am beginning to feel like something bigger is coming on if that makes sense? Extremely foggy and almost like I just can’t focus no matter what I do, darker spots what seems like in my peripheral vision that I can’t pin point but it just seems overall shadier in that area. It’s making me emotional because I remember how I felt and how it was so hard for me to describe it and with a clean mri I felt like I was crazy. I have a new heart mur mur also diagnosed in 2017 which I never have had before... I feel like my body is slowly showing me new things and for being so young the muscle weakness and abs random numbness and confusion is hard to understand. I at times will throw something I’m holding like a pen or phone and no even realize it, it seems like I drop it but it’s almost more a spasm.... I’m just looking to see if anyone can relate to me, am I searching in the wrong place or could this vey well be the beginning to my future of flares and figuring out a dx. Thanks so much.
