About 6weeks ago part of my face started feeling numb and also over sensitive to pain.
I went to the gp, had bloods done and was told not to worry it'd probably go away on its own.
The bloods came back with all inflammation markers showing.
Fast forward to a week ago. A large patch on my stomach/left side, hope, thigh and back went numb/painful suddenly.
Feels like it's numb, but it's more sensitive to pain stimuli, including even clothing setting it off.
So yesterday I finally got to seen a neurologist (pretty quick actually).
Went through all the tests with reflexes and pain tolerance.
Turns out the side affected with this numbness, the entire side is overly sensitive to pain stimuli, unbelievably so.
But also the right hand reflexes are exaggerated compaired with the left side.
Before I left the doctor simply said "I think there's inflammation to the brain" felt pretty vague to say the least. After he'd asked questions to rule out things like Lyme disease.
I'm being sent for an full body MRI, a chest x-ray (no explanation as to why) and being given gabapentin.
I'm 24 and really, I don't understand what's going on.
