Scared


Getting straight to the point. I have had problems for a while. I was refered to a neurologist last August, since then I've felt worse. I'm so scared I have something serious. Like MS (I know it's a possibility) or Lymphoma!! I got pregnant just as I'd seen the neurologist so I have had an agonising wait/worry. I am waiting for my mri date.

These are my symptoms. It's really impacting on my life with my toddler & newborn :-( I am only 29! How can this be happening!

These are my symptoms:
Tingling feet/cellphone/mobile phone sensations
Burning/aching legs (throughout pregnancy) when I walk & still now :-(
Sore knees towards end of pregnancy & after
Numbness in feet at times but feel normal when I touch them
Jelly legs -can't walk far without getting them. They feel like lead weights.
Burning sensation to the skin on my mid/lower back - but this only came a few hours after labour/birth& has remained on & off.

If I have something fine but I need to know I can live a normal life! Can medication reduce my symptoms? Including my jelly legs? It is on my mind 24/7 literally, I am so scared.

Huge anxieties now. I get panicky in public or even with a group of family or friends.

Why would it all have got so much worse since I got pregnant/saw neurologist?

I *think* I was tested for vit b12 & if so it came back "normal" but I was taking pregnancy vitamins at the time which included som b12. I had forgotten when I had the blood test, could that have masked deficiencies?

The doctors just don't take anything seriously so that's why I say I *think* they included that in the blood test.

Bumping & sorry I keep thinking of things to add.

One neurologist I saw didn't see cause for concern really. The other wants to do mri.

The past 2.5years I get little sleep. I just go to bed too late (since being part time at work) & I am then up early with my toddler so I have not been looking after myself in this respect. I also am renowned for being dehydrated. Historically I can drink just one glass of juice a day. Or one with each meal but I have been terrible at drinking. I am now making big effort to drink water & plenty. Probably still not enough a lot of days but I beat myself up about it & really try now to drink more.

I am so scared & I just want to get my life back!
